In 2013, Global Dental Relief extended its reach to Cambodia in Southeast Asia.  Cambodia is a stunning country filled with vibrant green rice paddies, palm trees and smiling children riding bicycles to school.  

Global Dental Relief volunteers work in rural Khmer villages serving thousands of children each year.  Clinics are set up in partnership with two amazing local social enterprise non-profits, allowing volunteers to work alongside local volunteers serving children.

This is a “Comfort” style trip. Volunteers stay in 3 to 5 star hotels in the international travelers mecca of Siem Reap.  Evenings and days off can be spent walking through lively, culturally rich local streets.  Volunteers also visit the nearby Angkor Wat temple complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site widely considered to be the Eighth Wonder of the World.

Some GDR trips include an optional sightseeing extension to either Laos, Vietnam or Burma. See Itineraries and Trip Schedule below.
