World Health Dental Organization

Compassionate dental care and education for communities in need.  Changing lives – one smile at a time. 

What we do

The World Health Dental Organization provides high-quality, compassionate, charitable dental care and education to underserved communities around the world.


We provide charitable dental care to communities in need.

Licensed dentists and hygienists from around the world volunteer to ensure only the highest quality care is provided.


We provide free dental education to new mothers, families, and school children.

We work with educators in local schools to develop culture- and age-appropriate curricula.


Our volunteers and their families enjoy a private safari on the world famous Maasai Mara. This is not a zoo; this is not a park.

Welcome to the wild!

The Maasai Dental Clinic

The Maasai Dental Clinic is the flagship clinic of the World Health Dental Organization. It was established in 2008 and today treats more than 3,000 members of the Maasai community every year.

The clinic is adjacent to the world-famous Maasai Mara National Game Park in Kenya, East Africa.

Safari on the Mara

The World Health Dental Organization offers volunteers and their families at the Maasai Dental Clinic the life-changing magic of a safari at the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve – free of charge.

With camera in hand, view the unexpected through the roof of our Land Cruiser: herds of elephants, a pride of lions, a single cheetah stalking a wildebeest, a rhino hiding in the thicket. No two safaris are ever the same!

Education Programs

Good oral health starts with education and daily care. We are committed to empowering local educators to encourage better health outcomes in the communities we serve. 

 We build community partnerships to provide culturally sensitive educational materials to be distributed in classrooms and clinics throughout the region.
