Description:

Volunteers give their time, energy and knowledge to causes that align with their personal passions, interests and values. Volunteering in dentistry can help advance the mission of many organizations that are dedicated to improving oral health to the underserved in Florida. Whether you like children or seniors, or are looking for a short-term or long-term commitment, learn about the many opportunities for volunteer engagement that exist and how you can maximize your personal volunteer experiences while also serving the community. This lecture will provide attendees with insight and the ability to explore various community outreach entities; thus, enriching themselves and the community in which they serve.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to: 

  • examine whether volunteering is a costly sacrifice or self-commodity. 

  • identify populations in need or at risk in their community.  

  • identify community outreach programs in attendees’ local areas.  

  • discover how volunteerism serves the volunteer and dental practice.  

  • establish a volunteer network.
