Global Dental Relief Reviews
A rewarding and magical experience in Guatemala
Submitted by Sabrina | September 05, 2017
This was not the first time that I had volunteered with Global Dental Relief in the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala but each time the experience brings so much more. The volunteers on each trip always make it so fun and everyone always gets along so well. The trip leaders are so organized and are available 24/7 for anything that you can think of. As a dental hygienist, being able to give back to children in need of dental treatment is beyond words. The smiles, hugs and appreciation received by not only the children but the parents make it so rewarding and special. The location of the clinic in the highlands is remote but has many basic amenities available and the people of the village are kind and welcoming. Volunteering at this location really allows you to get immersed in the true culture and life of the people within the rural villages of Guatemala. It is definitely a trip you will want to sign up for and you will not regret it.
Thank you GDR !

Cambodia dental trip

A wonderful, organized and rewarding program. All the legwork was accomplished for us, allowing the volunteers to do much needed dental work very efficiently. I especially enjoyed our interactions with our Cambodian partners. We work hard but also have time to sightsee and have fun. The trip leaders and other volunteers were great; dedicated and caring individuals. The accommodations were lovely and the town of Siem Reap lively.

I can't rave enough about my experience. I mostly assisted as I was a senior dental student during my trip. The accommodations were much nicer than I had anticipated and our returning hotel was out-right gorgeous. The entire trip was very well organized and even if changes were made to plans our leader swiftly worked out the details. The clinic itself was easy to walk into as a new volunteer and quickly adapt to the pace of how these events typically run. All of the food was delicious! The opportunity for shopping and sightseeing was plentiful and quite flexible to fit the various needs/wants of the group. I truly loved this experience and will absolutely return to do another clinic soon!
