Global Dental Relief expanded to Kenya in 2013.  Clinics are now held in partnership with the Chogoria Hospital Dental Clinic, located approximately 4 hours north of Nairobi. Near the prime tea growing region of Kenya, the area offers respite from the congestion and hubbub of the capital city.

Working in a fully equipped dental clinic, GDR volunteers spend five days alongside their Kenyan colleagues, serving hundreds of broadly smiling children from nearby schools.  

Volunteers stay in a basic guesthouse in the hospital compound.  

Following each clinic, volunteers may join a safari to the renowned Maasai Mara National Park – a stirring landscape with an incredible abundance of wildlife.
