Volunteers to Faculté d'Odontologie in Port-au-Prince, Haiti must be licensed general dentists or board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons with three to five years of clinical experience. Volunteers to this site must have prior relevant international health experience. Assignments are not to exceed one week in length, and will be scheduled between mid-October and mid-April. Though classes at the Faculté d'Odontologie are taught in Creole, many of the students understand and speak English, and volunteers may work in English during both lectures and clinical instruction. A member of the faculty will be available at all times to translate.
