VIETNAM MAY 2015 MEDICAL CAMP & DENTAL OUTREACH
In February 2017, Rescue Humanity and Center for Global Change will be heading to Nepal to set up a Madical/Dental Outreach.
We want change for the world. But the change we all wish to see won’t be realized through big, sweeping acts—not by governments, or armies, or the UN. Instead, lasting change will be achieved through small, personal acts of kindness and selflessness, and through the spreading of tolerance and understanding between people and cultures. Only as people become more willing to change themselves—the way they think, the way they act—will real change become possible. You can be apart of this change.
It is exactly these types of changes that C4GC & Rescue Humanity make possible. The passion that you bring to your volunteer abroad experience will start a ripple effect, bringing change to people and the communities in which they live. Meanwhile, you’ll find wisdom and beauty in a way of life different from your own.
You’ll discover the critical role that every individual plays in achieving lasting change. You’ll see that volunteering abroad can be a safe and exciting adventure—the trip of a lifetime where you can learn about another culture while learning about yourself.
Change in the world begins with you. You’re closer than ever to making an incredible difference.
The unique C4GC Home-Base structure provides incomparable safety, including 24-hour security for volunteers, the highest standards in transportation, and meals expertly prepared to ensure that you stay healthy and well-fed. Challenge us! Our safety standards across the board are unmatched.
open eyes, inspire minds & enlighten hearts
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
A volunteer trip abroad with Cross-Cultural Solutions will change you. Change the way you see other cultures. Maybe even change how you live your life. All while you change the lives of others for the better. Ultimately we’re changing the way volunteering is done, making it a safe, exciting adventure of a lifetime for people of all ages and walks of life.
Dentists perform exams, restorations and extractions as needed. Dentists work alongside an assistant who carries out normal chairside duties, including charting as well as instrument and suction support. Some assistants may be highly trained, and some may be relatively new to the role, providing teaching opportunities for dentists.
Hygienists primarily perform preliminary exams and patient cleanings – in many cases the first cleaning a child has ever received. Portable headlamps and cavitrons are provided as are the supplies to provide sealants as time allows. Hygienists work with assistants who may be either GDR volunteers or local partners to ensure children are comfortable and understand the importance of oral hygiene.
Dental Assistants bring critical skills and experience to GDR dental camps. Paired with dentists and hygienists, dental assistants perform an array of chair-side duties including patient management, charting, and instrument and suction support. Their role is key to the comfort of both patients and volunteers new to the world of dentistry
Non-dental / General Volunteers perform a variety of roles critical to the smooth operation of the clinic. These duties include tooth brush instruction, instrument sterilization, record keeping, clinic flow, and managing and engaging with the lines of children waiting for treatment. General volunteers may also be trained as chairside assistants, as skills and interest allow.
