Dental Brigades at Johns Hopkins University



  • About
    Johns Hopkins University is a chapter of Global Brigades, the world\'s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. The JHU chapter systematically works with more than 300 other university groups around the world to deliver and implement one of nine skill-based programs that benefit more than 130,000 Honduran and Panamanian community members annually. Dental Brigades provides Hondurans with dental hygiene care, proper oral hygiene instructions, restorative care to the teeth that can be saved and extractions for the ones that cannot. A Dental Brigade consists of dental and dental hygiene student volunteers and dental professionals to provide dental care to in-need communities. The group functions like a mobile dental unit.
