WELCOME TO THE SOUTH PACIFIC

You can choose your own travel dates to any of these three countries*

* TONGA – A 7-chair dental clinic has been set up on the LDS campus of Liahona High School.  Full-time missionaries are called as Directors of the clinic for 12 to 23 months.  If interested in going as volunteers or missionaries keep your dental license current.  We continue to need volunteer dentists to work in the clinic as there are always more patients needing help than can be treated by one dentist.  In addition, there are three portable chairs and units that can be taken to outer islands if desired.  Local volunteer dental assistants will be glad to assist you as well as translate when necessary.

The Tongans are a very friendly people, welcoming and appreciative of all we do.  Most Tongans speak  at least some English.  When housing is available, it is supplied for volunteers with no charge except for electricity.  Check with us before plans are finalized.   Spouses and children are also welcome.

Volunteers in Tonga need to plan on a minimum stay of two weeks (10 clinic days).

*SAMOA (formerly known as Western Samoa) – Samoa has a modern five-chair clinic in Pesega on the LDS campus.  Full-time missionaries are called as Directors of the clinic for 12 to 23 months.  If interested in going as volunteers or missionaries keep your dental license current.  We continue to need volunteers to work in the Pesega clinic as there are always more patients needing help than can be treated by one dentist.  There are also two portable units that can be used in remote locations. Housing can be arranged for a reasonable fee when dates are set. Spouses and children are welcome.

Volunteers in Samoa need to plan on a minimum stay of two weeks (10 clinic days).

*KIRIBATI (previously known as the Gilbert Islands) — We are in the process of building a 4-chair dental clinic on the Moroni High School Campus (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints School)  We hope to have it finished by April of 2020.  We are taking business and personal donations to help with the building and equipping of this clinic.  It will be staffed by short- and long-term volunteer dentists and staff.
