Providing oral care
Dental Aid provides dental attention to some of the most remote areas in the world. The areas we work lack dental care infrastructure and good oral hygiene practices, creating a major need for oral health services, which is why we strive to collaborate with local oral health leaders in efforts to provide rural outreach clinics in Bangladesh.
Undertaking a dentistry elective in the developing world enables students to gain a new perspective and observe uncommon pathologies by providing supporting Selfless’ outreach dental care in remote parts of Bangladesh.
Volunteers will work with and under the supervision of in-country providers and gain an understanding of the challenges of dental care in Bangladesh.

Selfless gave me the opportunity to meet amazing young people who I will never forget and never would have met otherwise.
Working for Selfless led from one opportunity to another. I’ve since gone on to film and produce health related documentaries for major outlets like Channel 4.
It’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture when you’re busy with a 9 to 5, volunteering for Selfless helped broaden my horizons and bring everything back into perspective.
You can sit back and complain about the woes of the world but Selfless pushed me out the front door to actually go and do something to make it better.
I can’t think of a time in my life where I felt so grateful for things I had as I did when I was in Bangladesh. Every human deserves to at least have simple things like running water, food and free healthcare.
