Charity Anywhere Foundation

Dear Dental Volunteers,

TIJUANA:  We are doing dental work in Tijuana on a consistent basis. We generally have pre-dental college students who come and work with a dentist for a week. This experience has helped many get into dental school.  We need at least 4 dentists to come and work with the college students assisting. We also could use an additional four more dental assistants. Each dentist should bring the hand pieces they plan on using and a copy of their license. If you have any used equipment that you are not using in your office, we would welcome that equipment as a donation to our two offices. We will furnish the rest of the supplies.

The cost for serving in Tijuana is $425 for each volunteer. We furnish housing, meals and local transportation. Some dentists have preferred to stay in a motel 6 type motel not far from the hospital. It costs $30 per night. We can pick the dentist up at the San Diego airport if they decide to fly in. We will meet the dentist at the border if you decide to drive across. I would like to have your cell phone number to communicate instructions as you approach the border. Passports are not needed to get back into the states but they are the best identification. A driver’s license is all that is required at the moment.

We welcome any dentist to come for just a few days. We will work Monday through Friday. Some have come for just two days or more. You will be in charge of the work at the dental chair where you work and will teach, instruct, and demonstrate dental work. Extractions and fillings are all that is done. You will not be doing any complicated dentistry.

ECUADOR:  We also have an ongoing dental program serving all of Ecuador. Dentists pick the days they would like to serve, and Dr. Washington Zambrano will use their help on those days. Families are welcome.  The cost is $1,250 plus airfare for each volunteer.

BOLIVIAWe are opening Bolivia as a place to serve in the area of dental service. The cost will be $1,250 per volunteer.  Local transportation, meals, and housing are included.

We hope to hear from you. Be good and do good.
