Travel up the isolated, picturesque coastline of Vancouver Island’s Nootka Sound and ‘Share a Smile’ with the communities in this area. BCDHA has awarded Share a Smile Society with a grant to help fund the travel and accommodation expenses for 4 volunteer dental hygienists.
We will be visiting the communities of Tahsis, Esperanza/Zeballos and Kyuquot in the Nootka Sound and it may be possible for you to join our team for one, two or all of the communities. This is determined after our volunteer numbers are confirmed and travel arrangements are made and confirmed. We will be leaving very early morning on Tuesday, August 15-2017 from Nanaimo and returning late in the day on Wednesday, August 23-2017.
The lucky applicants must be registered dental hygienists in the province of British Columbia with a valid license with the College of Dental Hygienists of BC and must also be members of BCDHA. If you are interested in joining us for this amazing opportunity please submit your resume by mail or email along with a letter of interest including your desired destinations and your BCDHA and College Registration numbers. No previous experience on volunteer missions is necessary and 365 Day Rule exemption is an asset but not required. Deadline for Share a Smile application for BCDHA volunteers is June 21, 2017.
