On the 27th of September, 4 final year dental students flew to Kiunga, PNG for 16 days on the first ever organised dental placement at Kiunga District Hospital.
We brought donated equipment from various sponsors including instruments, a large quantity of glass ionomer cements, composites, bonding, polishing, local anaesthetic and PPE.
The experience was possibly one of the best placement experiences a final year student could have. The students were supervised voluntarily by Dr Beatrice Solok and stayed in provided accommodation from the Kiunga District Hospital and OTML.
