Come experience the cultural and humanitarian side of Guatemala with Mason Gives. We have created a custom week of providing much needed dental care for the indigenous people of the Guatemalan highlands along with experiencing some of the rich culture of Guatemala. Living there for a year wasn’t enough. We want to go back and we want you to join us!

We stay in great places, eat super good food and serve A LOT of people. There is no shortage of teeth needing restorations, teeth needing extractions or calculus needing removal.
With our equipment we are able to take digital radiographs, perform comprehensive dentistry and have general anesthesia services available for our young and special needs patients. They are a humble and thankful people who always make you feel appreciated for your service.
We have 25 spots available for dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and other support members in the group. Dental experience is not needed to come, serve and make a difference in the world. Experience with the Spanish language is helpful but not required. We will have interpreters on site to help as we serve.
Let us know what questions we can answer for you. We’d love to have you on one of our dental missions in “The Land of The Eternal Spring!”
