- Types of placement: Hospital dentistry department
- Accommodation: Guest House/Host Family

Based in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, the High School Special Dentistry project is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to experience and understand the medical systems in a developing country.
Volunteers will be under the supervision of a Projects Abroad Coordinator; and will spend time in the dentistry departments of a general hospital.
During your two or three weeks you will also attend an interesting workshop on medical practices in Sri Lanka, and participate in outreach activities during a two-day medical camp where you will visit a local community centre.
Projects Abroad will arrange a weekend trip to Kandy, Sri Lanka’s cultural capital, which is an UNESCO World Heritage site.
Every year, thousands of High School Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work.
