George Mason University Dental Outreach trip to Peru, August 2020

Volunteer Activity Description

Join George Mason University on their Dental Outreach trip to Peru this summer! Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about various dental procedures, such as cleanings, restorations, fillings, and extractions, learn about the current healthcare system in Peru and teach a public health class and much more! If you’re interested in joining, contact us for more information!

VAW at GMU will be opening up mobile dental clinics for local communities during their time in Peru.

One of the most exciting and important parts of volunteering with VAW is bringing full dental clinics and primary care medical clinics to the less fortunate. In 2019, VAW treated over 35,000 patients and we aspire to treat over 45,000 in 2020. One of the things that make our dental mobile clinics unique is that we are able to perform multiple procedures including fillings, restorations, cleanings and extractions at the mobile clinic. Fundraising for supplies and medications is a huge part of creating a successful mobile clinic to help the local communities with effective care.

**Note: airfare goal will be updated once flights are purchased, tentatively the week of May 4-8, 2020
