High Desert Component


The High Desert Component provided free cleanings to the uninsured on Friday, March 16, 2018 at their local community college dental assisting school. The hygiene volunteers had fun working with the dental assisting students while giving back to their community! 

Metro East Component

The Metro East Component did an awesome community service day on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at NW Family Services. There were five mobile units and they provided free preventive therapies. The hygiene volunteers included 4 component members as well as 10 Mt Hood dental hygiene students. How fun!
