Volunteering with DVI

Please note that in order to volunteer, DVI requires dentists and specialists to be “members in good standing”. Please see our DVI M​embership information. Visits for dentists (except for endodontists) is for a one-week period.

Volunteering can be a rewarding experience. By being a dental volunteer, you will be delivering dental care to children ages five through eighteen who come from underprivileged families in Jerusalem. The clinic has six fully equipped dental chairs and an English speaking Israeli resident staff of dental assistants and hygienists.

DVI Offers

The clinic performs one hundred treatments for children from underprivileged families every day. There have been 4,500 dentists from around the world that have volunteered at the clinic and many of them have returned several times to lend their knowledge and expertise to improving the lives of these children.

In response to increasing demand for DVI’s services, the clinic hours have been expanded. The clinic is now open from Sunday through Thursday from eight a.m. to two p.m.

The clinic will provide their volunteers with a centrally located cost-free apartment in Jerusalem stocked with dishes and linens. Families of the volunteers are invited as well. Every apartment is available from Friday around noon to the following Friday until nine a.m. Both of these times can be flexible, but details must be arranged ahead of time with the clinic’s coordinator.

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page for details.
