About Dental Brigades
Dental Brigade volunteers have the opportunity to shadow licensed dentists in urgent and preventive dental services in communities with limited access to healthcare through a one week Dental Brigade in Honduras, Panama, or Ghana. Student volunteers can either join an existing Dental Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers to go on a brigade. In conjunction with our program, Medical Brigades, over 80 groups of passionate volunteers systematically travel to Central America to establish mobile dental clinics in over 80 of our community partners. Each of our community partners receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are treated with fillings, cleanings and extractions, and are given dental hygiene workshops.
