Mission: Volunteering overseas on one of Projects Abroad's dental placements is a fantastic way to gain practical experience in dentistry. Whether you are hoping to get into the field, a trained professional looking to gain some work experience, or somewhere in-between, you will have a role to play in one of the hospitals and clinics Projects Abroad works with. Each placement is tailored, where possible, both to a volunteer's level of experience and their interests.
