This August, the Student Hispanic Dental Association will be taking its annual global service learning trip to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to provide dental care to the surrounding local community that has little to no access to dental care.
We have will been fundraising all year to be able to travel with 23 students and 6 faculty members to provide comprehensive dental care. For 1 week, we will be providing dental exams, cleanings, fillings, and extractions as needed, as well as providing everyone with toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and oral hygiene instruction and reinforcement. It is an extremely rewarding, uplifting experience as well as a very unique opportunity to offer our services as full-time dental providers to a community in need.
As a team of Tufts Dental students, it is challenging to afford this trip, and we would greatly appreciate any donation that you are able to make – large or small. The link below will direct you to our GoFundMe Page.
Your contribution would mean the world to us. Every penny counts!
Thank you so much for your support and for sharing our passion by being a part of this truly amazing cause!!!
