Study Abroad Association’s Global Dental Health Initiative is our commitment to providing communities in great need around the world health care services free of charge.

This Initiative is a result of the overwhelming demand following our first clinic. Pre-registration overfilled, which helped us realize the community has greater needs, and we are prepared to increase the number of clinics.

Dental groups can run these clinics anytime throughout the year to best accommodate their academic schedules.

Our program in the Sacred Valley of Peru is an amazing opportunity for dental hygiene students to share their skills and profession with communities who cannot afford and do not have access to dental care.

Students, professors, and professionals in the field will provide much needed dental work during four days of clinics. We anticipate hundreds of patients to attend the clinics that are hosted at the local primary schools. The warm people of Peru are grateful for these services and open their arms and hearts to the student groups volunteering and providing these opportunities.

At the clinic, students will divide into groups to ensure every team includes all dental professions. We set up our clinics in easily accessible public locations to help those most in need. Along with dental work, students will help educate the community and provide everyone dental hygiene products.

In addition to the clinics, students will learn all about Peruvian culture, especially the indigenous peoples of the Sacred Valley and the highlands of the Andes. We will participate in daily cultural activities, visit breathtaking Inca Ruins, have the opportunity to visit Machu Picchu, and much more.

Be part of this incredible project and give students the chance to further their education by giving back to communities in need.
