Dentistry Work Experience Internship, in Kathmandu, Nepal

         

I enjoyed very much my placement in Nepal. The Travellers Worldwide staff in Nepal were very welcoming and supported us throughout the whole project.

The country is very different to what we are used-to and even crossing the busy streets was scary for us because there were no light signals. So the staff were very supportive in making sure that someone walked with us to and from work for all the workdays during those 2 weeks. They also organized a trip of 2 nights in a national park where we got so see another Nepali town and also experience things such as an elephant ride and canoeing.

My days were spent teaching students at a local dental Hygienist college in the mornings; and in the afternoons I would help out at the orphanage. At the college, I gave them lectures about dental topics and then I would give them a practical session at clinic to apply the things they have learned in the lecture and gain new dental skills. The students were a joy to teach and they were very eager to learn!

My afternoons at the orphanage were spent helping managing arts and crafts class helping organizing a baseball game. We also organized a Dental event at the orphanage where we taught them the importance of oral hygiene. I demonstrated how to brush their teeth and we put them in groups where they would play "dentist" and "patient" roles and inspect each others teeth and show each other how to brush their teeth using the toothbrushes handed out to each person.

It was a very enjoyable placement where I gained so many new experiences, enough to make a huge impact on my life right now. I am very lucky to have joined this placement through Travellers Worldwide, as I had constant support from them before, during, and even after my placement. I definitely will think about joining Travellers Worldwide for my next volunteer project.

Thank You, Travellers Worldwide!
