Six Universidad Europea Dentistry students are completing internships at the Coloma Vidal Charity Dental Clinic

The center received 1,200 visits last year and attended to around 370 patients

Six Dentistry students from Universidad Europea have completed altruistic, unpaid internships at the clinic of the NGO Dentists on Wheels.   The Coloma Vidal Charity Dental Clinic, which opened in late 2014, received over 1,200 visits last year and has a three month waiting list. The number of patients attended in 2015 rose to 370.

Antònia Maria Nicolau, one of the students, stressed that it is an experience that is “very gratifying”. “It has helped me become aware that more clinics are really needed to treat people who are unable to access basic dental services, as well as professionals who volunteer there. There are never too many people and any help is welcome”, she explained.
