Hospitals in developing countries are short staffed and often have a high patient load, so students find themselves involved with treatment and patient care very quickly. Under resourced surgeries can also mean a return to the basics of dentistry education, diagnosing and treating conditions without adequate laboratory or dental equipment.

There is also a great opportunity to see cases that are seldom, if ever, found in the UK. Whether you are interested in minor or major surgeries, or wish to focus on specific areas like the problem of excessively worn down teeth - a common problem in Asia particularly, this is a great chance to expand your dental knowledge. 

Unfortunately cost, distance and a lack of education in resource-poor countries means patients regularly present themselves with diseases or pathologies that have advanced to a critical stage. The chance to witness and treat these conditions will undoubtedly teach you new skills and enhance your understanding of disease progression.
