Course Summary: 

When sharing our passion for short-term missions, we are often asked how we do it. The process of putting together a mission team, coordinating and organizing the endless details continues to be a work in progress. We have learned many lessons over the last fifteen years and thirty trips. Each mission is different. We’ve done a one-chair clinic with the two of us, to a maximum of a six-chair clinic with up to twenty-six volunteers. We’ve held dental clinics in orphanages, street youth centers, transition houses, summer camps, schools, seminaries, hospitals, churches, outreach centers, medical clinics, military posts, houses, and under tents.

Course Objectives:

  1. To encourage participants to step out of their comfort zone to provide dental care to the disadvantaged both here and abroad.
  2. To gain an understanding of the reasons and benefits motivating an individual to volunteer on a dental humanitarian trip.
  3. To learn how to practically plan, coordinate, organize, transport, and provide quality dental care anywhere in the world utilizing portable dental equipment, by drawing upon personal experiences, stories, demonstrations and visuals.
  4. To provide resources for providing portable short-term dental care.
