The children receive all the necessary preventative and restorative dentistry which they would not otherwise be able to afford. DVI never requests payment for any treatment. Mrs. Trudi Birger, a Holocaust survivor, who saw children’s care as her goal in life, established DVI in 1980. The clinic is operated by dentists from around the world who volunteer for periods of 1 – 2 weeks. D.V.I. treats some 50 poor children per day, most of whom are arriving for the first time in their life to a dentist, and some are even in their teens. They receive their first toothbrush and learn how to keep their teeth healthy throughout their lifetime. Dental Volunteers for Israel is proud to be a unique organization providing approx. 1,000 free treatments monthly.
We also provide free dentures to Holocaust Survivors and needy elderly aged 71+.
