The Volunteer Community Clinic Program engages volunteer dentists, including alumni, and all years of students (both dental and dental hygiene degree students) in weekend clinics at multiple local locations. Locations beyond the Lower Mainland occur in the summer.

The program’s mission is to improve and sustain the oral health of people in need within the community; to promote health education and social betterment, and provide assistance through treatment, training and education; and to enhance students’ awareness and role as global citizens with sustainable opportunities to serve.

Participation in these student-led clinics is extracurricular and the volunteer opportunities are designed to complement the community service and learning curriculum.
