Dentistry Placements in Mexico

We have a variety of placements working in government funded hospitals and schemes in the city of Guadalajara. We aim to tailor our dental projects in Mexico to your objectives and capabilities. You might be a pre-university student looking for experience vital to an application to dental school, or an elective student looking to practice skills learnt in your training.

The Mexican government provides dental care to those who cannot afford private dental insurance. These dental clinics are based at Government funded hospitals and clinics around the city.

In addition to the hospital based placements, we also have opportunities for some students to work on a government sponsored programme that provides dental care for poor families. The scheme takes place in the poorer communities on the outskirts of Guadalajara.

The dentists see the poorer patients in the hospitals during the day but often also have their own private practices in the afternoons which you can also attend. You can either choose to go with the clinic to help the dentist in the afternoons to gain more experience or help with other volunteer activities.

For example, the free dental check-ups are just one initiative in a scheme that provides help for the impoverished families. As well as dental treatment, the scheme also provides single mothers with the opportunity to develop new skills to help get them back to work, and even conducts yoga and dance sessions to provide an escape from the stresses and strains of daily life of the poor families.

Accommodation on this project is with local families, usually sharing with others, but hostel accommodation can be arranged for an extra cost. You will be joined in Guadalajara by others on our medical, teaching, media and business projects.
