These will depend entirely on the location of your volunteering.
We have an informal cooperation with other charities working in Burma who would like us to provide a mobile dental service for their children in schools, orphans in orphanages or patients in their medical establishments. None will have a dental surgery available. Our mobile units are entirely self-sufficient and will include a patient chair, dental chair, autoclave or pressure cooker, suction, compressor and wheeled custom made cases for all the equipment. If you would like to see the unit look at the designer and manufacturer’s website. www.newcodent.com
Some of these sites are very remote indeed and sleeping accommodation will be a hammock in a virtually empty building.
Other sites will be near Rangoon or near Lake Inle where you can stay in luxury hotels if you want to and may well be working in a fully equipped dental surgery.
We provide a Burmese speaking nurse who will be trained either by us or possibly be a medical nurse or a willing volunteer.
We have to be adaptable and if you need to train someone to use an autoclave, then please do so. You will find these people very willing to learn and very grateful that you are providing treatment in their country.
