What are the hours of operation for the dental clinic?

The clinic is open for a five-day workweek from Sunday through Thursday. The clinic hours are from eight a.m. to two p.m. on Sunday through Wednesday and from eight a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday. The clinic operates every working day of the year except for legal Israeli holidays.

What are the requirements to volunteer at the clinic?

DVI welcomes all licensed dentists who feel comfortable doing operative dentistry on children. You do not have to be a pediatric dentist. We do have endodontists volunteering as well. Though we would like to accept all potential volunteers, we cannot receive dental assistants, dental students, and hygienists. All volunteer dentists must have at least two years dental experience in order to volunteer.

Are there any accommodations provided for volunteers?

DVI provides all volunteers and their family with cost-free apartments located in Jerusalem. All apartments are available from Friday around noon to the following Friday until nine a.m. Both of these times can be flexible, but details must be arranged in advance.

How do I initiate the process of volunteering?

In order to volunteer please fill out the application form. After completing the form you may fax them to Ms. Aliza Solomon at 972-2-678-4737 or email them to international@dental-dvi.org.il.

Does the DVI clinic have a routine clinical staff?

The DVI clinic has a Director, Dr. Roy Petel, who is a pediatric dentist. He is present at every clinic period and supervises all the work produced. The clinic has at least four multi-lingual dental assistants who are each assigned to a doctor for every clinic period. There is also a full time hygiene program working at the same time as all clinic appointments.

Is there a Canadian dentist I can speak to about the volunteer process and experience?

Yes, please check the Contact Page on this site or contact Dr. Victor Bederman who is the Treasurer. They have volunteered many times and are very familiar with the experience.
