Dentistry Electives Abroad

Dentistry Electives Abroad

Are you a dental student in your clinical years looking for dental school elective or a dental practitioner looking for a dental volunteer opportunity? Our dental electives in developing countries are customized for you to help meet your objectives while getting exposure into a unique dental practice atmosphere.


Our dental elective placements are uniquely tailored to ensure that you take part in dental care activities such as basic dental care including gum treatment for bleeding and swollen gums, restorative dentistry (permanent filling in decayed teeth), the extraction of erupted teeth and the removal of fractured roots, management of traumatic injuries of the teeth and the soft tissues of the mouth, orthodontic treatment, root canal treatment, replacement of missing teeth by removable dentures among others. While these activities look more or less what one may have been exposed to their diagnosis as well as their treatment methods differ. Through this dental elective attachment you will get to learn how innovation and creativity are applied to deliver dental care with limited resources.


Besides the routine dental clinic rotations you will also take part in dental education to sensitise the populations on the need for seeking dental preventive services.

A Very Unique Dentistry Experience
Elective Africa provided me a very unique experience of dentistry. The dentists at the hospital were more than happy to assist you and teach you new things. In my first week I was able to do an injection and extraction! Of course back home you would never be able to experience that until you were a dental student. The help at the house was really great too. I wouldn’t worry about the food. It is actually better than what you could find back home. Of course there is time to travel and sight see, which I did most days and had many unforgettable experiences.
