First impressions – from Jordan Kolsky

The Timor-Leste Dental Project expanded the horizons of my dental career. It was the first opportunity I have had to synthesise my passions for dentistry and travel alike – and found the experience to be deeply fulfilling. As our neighbours and a nation that has suffered tremendously in recent decades, the culture is profoundly welcoming and kind. Dental care is very low hanging fruit to pick in the pursuit to better the lives of people in Timor Leste – so your involvement is impactful. This is a reassuring feeling when working in an environment without any perks or luxuries that I am accustomed to in Australia! I loved the team and thoroughly enjoyed my time participating with the project. Moreso, my nurse even says I am more laidback after returning!Dr J and a happy patient
