Your professional skills will make an impact on the lives of children who have no access to quality dental care.

Who can volunteer?

DVI welcomes applications from dentists who have been licensed for at least two years, and who feel comfortable doing dentistry on children to age 26. General dentists, pediatric dentists, endodontists, oral surgeons and periodontists are especially encouraged to apply. Though we would like to accept all potential volunteers, we are unable to accept dental assistants, dental students, or hygienists.

Schedule & Procedures

Dentists volunteer for a period of 1-2 weeks. The clinic is open for a four-day work week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The clinic hours are from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The clinic operates 50 weeks out of the year except for legal Israeli holidays.

DVI provides all volunteers and their families with cost-free apartments located in Jerusalem. All apartments are available from Friday around noon to the following Friday until 9 a.m. Times can be flexible, but details must be arranged in advance. 

Volunteers pay their own airfare to Israel, but DVI provides accommodations to volunteers who work at the clinic for at least one week.
