The applicant should have successfully completed training as an Oral Health Officer. The applicant should be competent in dental examinations, dental pathology, extractions, and dental community outreach.

Tenwek Dental welcomes missionary volunteers to our clinic. In the past we have had dental professionals serve at Tenwek, including general dentists, periodontists, endodontists, Oral Surgeons, dental assistants, and dental students. Please notify the dental department directly if you have scheduled to volunteer, as we would like to arrange patient schedules accordingly. We encourage you to bring lectures in your designated specialty. If you are able to bring dental supplies or instruments for donation, it is greatly appreciated, as dental supplies are costly in Kenya.
Thank-you for your willingness to serve at Tenwek!
