We welcome participation by dental professionals from around the world. For more information about volunteering, please contact our headquarters at adrp@verizon.net. Volunteers pay their own expenses and $15 a day for board and room while staying at our project location. Full-service accommodations in local guest houses are also available for those desiring more support, at a somewhat higher cost.
While there is some risk associated with volunteering, no one has had any problem since our program began. A visa must be obtained from the Afghan Consulate in Washington, DC, requiring a support letter from our organization regarding the period of your visit. For more information, please contact our headquarters.

Project Phases

The Beginning


In January 2009, our volunteer center in Kabul opened. With seven bedrooms and complete utilities, we will be able to host many volunteers in complete comfort and security. In November 2008, our clinic arrived in Kabul, along with 120,000 pounds of dental equipment and supplies and was installed on land next-door to the volunteer center.
