You can gain international dental experience by doing a Dentistry internship in China with Projects Abroad. As a dental intern you will work with some of the most skilled and inspirational dental practitioners in the country.
Dentistry interns in China work in one of the hospitals we work with in Chengdu or Shanghai. The facilities are generally of a high standard, on a par with many hospitals in North America.
All Dentistry interns in China must have completed at least one year of dentistry-related studies or training by the time they join this project. Our placements provide you with an opportunity to shadow local dentists, learning all about the practical aspects of the subject in China.
Dental Placements Abroad with Projects Abroad
You will be placed under a local supervisor at the hospital where you are working. Your supervisor will test your knowledge and will be prepared to answer any questions you have. You will have the opportunity to observe a great variety of dental procedures, from basic oral healthcare and fillings to root canals and tooth extractions. You may even have the opportunity to observe complex orthodontic surgeries.
You can read more detailed information about the aims of the project in our China Medicine & Healthcare Management Plan.
When interning with Projects Abroad in China you will live with other Projects Abroad volunteers in a well-equipped, modern apartment. When you are not working you can take advantage of all that a big city like Chengdu or Shanghai has to offer, and enjoy weekends traveling out of the city with the other Projects Abroad volunteers.
