You may know millions of people throughout the world have limited or no access to dental care. You may not know that UF dental students have a 25-year commitment to providing quality dental care to the underserved, and you can help with that commitment.

You already know that millions of people throughout the world have limited or no access to dental care. You may not know that UF dental students have a 25-year commitment to providing quality dental care to the underserved, both nationally and internationally. Each year, UF donates countless hours to community-based programs in Florida and sends student dentists and faculty abroad to help provide oral health care for people who would otherwise be unable to access treatment.

 

In June 2014, thirty-six UF dental students and faculty are participating in an annual service trip to the Dominican Republic to provide care for the local population including extractions, fluoride, and restorative treatments. In 2013, we treated over 900 patients. This upcoming year we are also planning a second trip in April to a different area of the Dominican Republic in need of extensive oral health care. Consequently, we are in need of more supplies and also funds to help subsidize the trips for our students. These service trips make a crucial difference for the patients we treat, but we cannot treat them without supply and financial gifts from professionals like you.

 

Please consider supporting this international outreach program that has continued for over 25 years. Any supplies or funding you or your company can contribute are greatly appreciated and will help us provide dental care for people who need it the most.
