You will be working from Monday to Friday in a dental clinic with patients from 9am to 7pm.

On Friday we aim finish earlier in order to enjoy the sunny afternoon together.

A bus contracted by our organization will pick up the ICORI team in the lobby of the hotel at 8.30pm and drive us back to the hotel after work. A buffet lunch is provided in the clinic.

The participants will be working in small groups of two or three people, attending daily patients with different cases and necessities. Your instructor will introduce you the case with a panoramic x-ray in order to discuss the treatment planning with you. Once the treatment planning is clear, one of the participants will start with the surgery while the other participant assists him/her. Meanwhile, the instructor will supervise the procedure and support you.

Once the surgery is finished, the next participant will operate the next case. After each surgery, a new panoramic x-ray will be taken in order to discuss the final result. The participants will acquire new skills from the first minute, so that in the end of the week they will be able to operate by themselves.

Our hands-on program starts on Monday and finishes on Friday. Your fee includes a stay in the 5* Dominican Fiesta & Casino Hotel for 7 nights, whereby you can decide if you want to stay from Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday.

The Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino is a 5* hotel located in the business center of Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). The participants can enjoy an individual room, as well as all the features which the hotel offers, as a big open air pool area, casino, spa, gym, hairdresser and jazz bar.

The Dominican Republic is a wonderful environment for this program. Its location, weather and welcoming people are ideal for this live marathon surgery. During this week you will experience a unique environment with other doctors from all over the world with whom you can share and discuss your newest experience in oral surgery.

We compromise with locals who do not have the possibility to access dental treatments, and offer them our treatments free of charge. Our instructors can speak English, Spanish and French, being able to communicate with patients and participants. The local team of the clinic is making the follow-up treatments of every patient.
