Dental Volunteers for Israel provides free dental care and oral hygiene education to thousands of at-risk children and youth in Jerusalem every year, thanks to the benevolent support from our friends and visiting volunteer dentists from around the world.

A Personal Note from Wally Brown, Academy Member:

“I was the first Academy member to visit Jerusalem and serve at DVI in the 1980s.  As an endodontist, I truly felt needed and served there twice for two weeks each time.  The facilities are excellent and the staff folks are very caring and competent.  It was a wonderful experience to serve the people there.  The emphasis then was children, but I did a lot of adult Endo.  

“Trudi Birger was truly a valiant woman.  It was a privilege to know her well before her untimely passing.  Of course it was a choice experience to spend time at the BYU Jerusalem center and be taught by Truman Madsen, Kent Brown, Martin Hickman, and others. Evidently the schedule is now even more accommodating for touring for volunteers.  We worked five days of an 8-4 schedule.  Friday the clinic closed at 1p.m.   One of the true highlights was being invited into local Israeli homes, especially for Shabbat dinner.

“I encourage all Academy members to take this opportunity for International service.”

“Your in Service, Wally Brown”
