In our regular Mobile Clinics, the dental station is consistently one of the most-requested services, but the dentists are only able to treat 15 patients a day. The high demand led to the creation of Dental Clinic, a Service Learning Trip dedicated entirely to the type of health services the communities have requested.
Dental Clinic is a week-long Service Learning Trip during which students support local dentists to provide dental screening and treatment to communities in Lima’s urban settlements and in the brick-and-mortar MED Vida Dental Clinic. During the trip, students will have the chance to work interactively with patients and dentists by assisting with patient registration, station set-up, and instrument preparation. Volunteers will shadow dentists throughout procedures like extractions, fillings, and cleanings. They will also attend an educational workshop led by a MED Vida dentist.
