Dental Internship | Dominican Republic (Jarabacoa)
Internship Start Dates: January or August (Program length ranges from 4-9 months)
Description: The dentistry site in Jarabacoa provides dental care to people in a traditional dental clinic setting. Vanesa performs cleanings, extractions, and normal dentistry care, while also sharing with her patients about God’s love. Occasionally, she also leads outreaches in rural communities where dental care is less accessible and affordable.
Students at this site will work alongside Vanesa assisting her in clinical visits. Another key responsibility is calming fear in children who visit the dentist site by reading books, praying, and playing. An outreach participant in this site will be offered a chance to experience many facets of ministry, thru practical ways as well as relational care.
