Helping One Tooth at a Time: Stories of Overseas Volunteer Dentistry
UBC trained dentists and dental hygienists donate their time and talent to provide dental care to under-served communities around the world.
In this short presentation, you'll hear from UBC Dentistry alumni & friends, Dr. Liz Johnson-Lee, BSc’88, DMD’92, JoAnne Dawson and Nicole Kwieton on their volunteer work in Nicaragua and Guatemala carried out through the The Dental Mission Project.
The TDMP has been formed to support regions in desperate need of oral health care and education – around the world and in our own back yard. TDMP, a non profit organization, is committed to supplying portable dental equipment and supplies so that any dental team may provide dental care to areas in need throughout the world.
