Navutu Stars: 26 January to 6 February, 2018


We will be returning for the 13th year to Navutu Stars Resort on Yageta Island in the Yasawa chain of islands, located on the western side of Viti Levu.

This mission consists of a full dental operatory of prosthodontics, general and oral surgery. Portable Aseptico dental units are used to create a field operatory at the resort, complete with autoclaving capability. All of the supplies are provided by the foundation.

Additionally, a team of general medical specialists will travel daily to set up clinics on other rural islands for the purpose of providing general medical care as well as screening patients as surgical candidates at the Taveuni Hospital in the spring. The dental portion is filled. 7 days of dental and medical clinics and Sundays are off to snorkel, dive and explore the islands.

Cost: $2050.00 USD
