We’re thrilled to announce our upcoming dental service outreach mission to beautiful Costa Rica in partnership with Go for the City, and we want you to be a part of it! Following the success of our missions in Honduras, we’re expanding our efforts to make an even greater impact on the world of oral health.
Why Costa Rica?
Costa Rica, known for its stunning natural landscapes and welcoming people, is also home to a growing number of refugees from politically-instable countries further south. Last year, we partnered with Go For the City to provide dental care for some of these marginalized groups.
Our mission trip to Costa Rica is scheduled from May 4th to 11th, 2024. It’s a week-long journey filled with meaningful work, cultural experiences, and opportunities for personal growth.
How Can You Get Involved?
We’re looking for a dedicated team of dentists, dental students, and logistical helpers to join us. Your skills and passion for dentistry can make a significant difference in the lives of the people we serve.
Cost and Logistics
- The mission trip will cost $1,100 for dental students and $1,200 for dentists and other helpers.
