Dental Mission Trips

Volunteer for a Dental Mission Trip

Health care in Haiti has improved remarkably after the 2010 earthquake, but dental clinics and dentists remain in short supply. In fact, there are just three dentists for every 100,000 people in Haiti. Join us on a dental mission trip where you’ll serve at our dental clinic in Les Cayes, Haiti.

With the help of Zion Lutheran Church in Clear Lake, Iowa, GoServ Global built three treatment rooms, a sterilization area and state-of-the-art equipment, including digital x-ray. All you need to bring is a servant heart—we provide the rest.

Dental Mission Trip Length

Most trips last about one week. Teams consist of up to nine volunteers plus a GoServ Global leader. Teams of dentists, dental hygienists, assistants and other volunteers deliver free treatment and preventive dental care to children, teens and adults. Teams not only provide healthy smiles but also oral hygiene education.

Testimonials

Dr. Tom Bieber plans dental volunteer opportunities

“I first traveled to Haiti on a medical mission in 2011 through Zion Lutheran Church in Clear Lake, IA. At the time, I had no idea what a life-changing decision this would turn out to be! The majority of people in Haiti do not have the resources to see a dentist, so they live with the pain that comes with the absence of dental care. My hope is that now we will be able to help the younger Haitians learn some preventive measures so they will have a healthier outlook, and at the same time continue to treat those in pain. It will be nice to go to Haiti and be able to save some teeth rather than just remove them!”
