Student Volunteering

Summerwood Dental Brigades offers a unique opportunity for high school juniors and seniors, college undergrads and college grad students to experience the spirit of service and be exposed to international cultures.

We depend on student volunteers to help us with a variety of tasks including assisting the dentist with fillings and extractions, and providing dental health education to the local communities we serve. Students will teach basic oral hygiene skills including tooth brushing and flossing and will apply fluoride varnish, among other tasks.

Our typical volunteers are students with an interest in dentistry, medicine, social work, Spanish immersion, or simply a heart for community service.
