PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT
Our foundation facilitates cross-cultural service learning, volunteer vacations, community initiatives, and scholarships in highland Ecuador and Mali's Dogon Country.
We are looking for a dental professional to help us better organize our system for dental outreach work in rural communities in Ecuador. We want someone detail-oriented who can improve our inventory system, organization of supplies, and process during clinics, as well as providing follow-up dental care for patients who need additional procedures, such as root canals.
We will have a system for keeping track of our dental inventory and needs that functions smoothly without continuing involvement from an expert. At least 5 patients referred for more care during our outreach clinics will receive the care they need free of charge.

We Provide These Local Benefits
We can provide lodging with a host family in rural Ecuador.
We will provide home-cooked meals with the host family.
The Experteer will learn about an excellent system for primary care outreach to rural communities using volunteers, as well as about the local healthcare system, Ecuadorian dental practices, and a rich indigenous culture.
We will also provide the opportunity to participate in our Health Care Volunteer Vacation free of charge (normally we charge a fee of $1550 per week).
Questions & Answers About this Opportunity
Hello, What level of Spanish proficiency do you need for this project? Thank you.
We are looking for someone with conversational Spanish who will be able to communicate with a host family that does not speak English. If you are interested and do not have conversational Spanish, please get in touch with us and we could talk about other options. We could consider other lodging but it would be at your own expense.
