Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

unnamedCharles River Dental, a private dental office located near Charles/MGH, is hosting their 3rd Annual Dentistry From the Heart event on Friday, May 20th, 2016. They will provide free cleanings, extractions and restorative services for as many patients as possible from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. During their last event, free dental care was provided to over 70 adults in need.

Charles River Dental is seeking TUSDM student volunteers to help provide these services throughout the day. Volunteers may be assisting, helping with sterilization, triage, or anything else to help them run smoothly! We would like our volunteers to come in for the full day from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM or come in shifts (7:00 AM – 12:00 PM12:00 PM – 5:00 PM). We are looking for 10 volunteers. Volunteers may wear scrubs or business casual. The office is located within walking distance of the Red Line or Orange Line, and is about 15 minutes if commuting from TUSDM.

Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) is a nonprofit dental organization working to supply the world with free dental services. DFTH was founded by Dr. Monticciolo 14 years ago. Today, over 300 events are hosted per year, helping thousands of patients and giving millions of free dentistry. Charles River Dental has teamed up with DFTH to offer dental care to those in need. Charles River Dental is proud to affiliate with such a great cause.
