The dental profession has a long and proud history of working in the community to promote the importance of oral health and the critical role it plays in a person’s quality of life. This focus extends well beyond a practitioner’s immediate community to the health care needs of disadvantaged people, both at home and abroad.

As a member of the dental profession, you are actively encouraged to volunteer your time and effort to work with organisations that provide assistance to people who, for a variety of reasons such as location or economic status, may not receive the dental treatment they need or who don't possess an understanding of good oral health practices.

If you would like to contribute in this way, the ADA can connect you to an extensive range of events, organisations, and volunteering opportunities.
