To Help Your Patients,

You Must Heal Yourself First


Do you feel lost in the routine? Like you are
forgetting the meaning of your work?

Unfortunately, it’s common among dental professionals. If you don’t take some time,

the transactional part of the work starts getting more and more relevant.

And your desire to help gets drowned.

We know because we felt like this too.

That’s why we created REVIVE Mission.

REVIVE is a yoga retreat with a dental humanitarian mission to revive the reason why people like you and us got into medicine while helping yourself.


It’s a trip that will help you feel connected to your smile, your mission, and your health.

Half of it is dedicated to growing physically and mentally as a person - It’s the recharge you need so you can be fitter to help your patients.

The other half is dedicated to serving a community in need in the Dominican Republic with dental aid.


By using your abilities to heal them and improve their wellness, you will undoubtedly remember why you chose this path.

And, of course, we included excursions to have extra fun and get to know the country!

Get Out of Those 4 Walls

Immerse in the lush Dominican Republic to revive the experience of being alive and present.

Revive Juan Dolio

November 7th - 11th 2023

In the center-south of the Dominican Republic there’s one of the largest and most stunning bateyes, which is also one of the most underserved communities.

Going there will allow you to really give back and make a positive impact.

The rest of your stay will be at a hotel by a paradisiac beach.There, you’ll rest and practice yoga and breathwork to slow down and let yourself be more present.

It’s the ideal retreat for conscious dentists, team building, and aspiring dentists who want to gather as much experience as possible.

Revive El Valle Samaná

February 6th - 11th 2024

El Valle is a 200 people village in the northern Dominican jungle.

There, you will devote most of your time to healing and nourishing yourself through yoga and breathwork.

And from that place of filled-up cup, you will give back to locals with dental aid and quality time with them.

That, and exploring the surrounding, makes this the perfect trip for stressed-out dental professionals and their families.

Conscious Dental Implant Training

February 11th - 14th 2024

A 3-day hands-on training to successfully place the best implants and to treat the patient beyond the mouth.

You’ll perfect your technique and your human connection skills to increase the bedside manner.

Come and learn the holistic vision that will make your treatments stand out!

What’s included

We’ve got you covered!

Transportation for everyday, balanced and varied meals*, and top hotels.

Just book your flights and share their details with us so we can arrange your rides to and from the airport.

And if you’re thinking of staying for more time to enjoy the Dominican Republic, check out our extra-day options!

*Do you have any special needs? Don’t forget to tell us!


You don’t need to pack any tools! 

Just pack your scrubs, as we have mobile units with all the utilities. 

We admit they aren’t fancy, but they’re the closest we can get in this situation.

We have everything you need for odontology, emergency, and esthetic treatments and to hand out dental kits to the community.

You can travel light!

We’ve got you covered!

We start every morning with some yoga and some breathwork.

These exercises will help you open to a deeper dialogue with yourself and the ones surrounding you.

But you’ll also learn some other tips that you can easily implement at home, such as silent mornings and gratitude journaling.

According to each itinerary, we will do different excursions to get to know the beautiful destinations.

Sometimes we do trekking, others we go to the beach.

But we always finish with a visit, dinner, and stay at Zona Colonial, the oldest city in all of the Americas.

Ready to embrace the lush, beauty, and rich culture of this country?

Dr. CRISTIAN PAVEL


Dr. Cristian is a wellness-driven dentist passionate about living life to the fullest. And he believes that the best way to do so is through consistent practices that strengthen the body and center the mind.

After a life-changing dental aid mission in Guatemala, he vowed to offer foreign dental aid at least once a year.

However, the financial constraints and time limitations were challenging. Until he got a message from Jonathan presenting a chance to collaborate on a dental aid mission.Since then, Dr. Cristian and his wife have led regular dental aid yoga retreats in the Dominican Republic with the mission to empower the dental profession to become leaders in health and wellness.

Dr. JONATHAN DÍAZ


After working as a dentist in Spain, Jonathan felt frustrated returning to a lower quality of life in the Dominican Republic.

That’s why his mother convinced him to help missionaries in a batey as a supervisor. Witnessing students and retired foreign dentists selflessly serving his people inspired him.

He continued assisting for operations across the country and beyond. So in 2013, Jonathan, Dr. Eric, and Doug decided to create Bright Island Outreach to organize missions independently.

Jonathan shifted his focus from traditional patient care to serve those in need, which brings him greater fulfillment.But what about the volunteers’ wellness? He had to plan something with Cristian too.

Experience

Graduated in Odontology in 2006 from Universidad Central del Este (UCE).

Specializing in Dental Implants in 2013 by Universidad Central del Este (UCE).

2008-2022: Professor in Dental Anatomy and Clinic at Universidad Central del Este (UCE).

Dr. DANIELLE CASCIOLI


Dr. Danielle’s introduction to yoga came at the same time as her studies of anatomy in Dental School. She immediately recognized its therapeutic benefits for the body. But as she practiced it, she also noticed the grounding and calming force - or in her words, “ how it helped her not to get crazy”. 

As her career advanced, yoga became her secret weapon to be more present for her patients.

Yoga made Dr. Danielle a better professional. So she decided she had to share it.

She became a yoga teacher, and one year later she launched the first yoga retreats for dentists with Dr. Cristian.

In a group, she stands out as the consummate listener and the ever-ready to land a helping hand, if not the whole arm.

Experience


DDS from the University of Toronto College of Dentistry in 2016


Certified yoga teacher in 2018


Professional Skills Development Coach in 2020 through the Thrive Institute.
