This course is designed for dentists, dental hygienists, and other interested parties who want to learn more about the nuts and bolts of volunteering around the world or around the block. It is also useful for those with some volunteering experience looking for new ideas or just validation of what they are doing. Topics include the nature of volunteer activities, cross-cultural issues, comparison of service and teaching projects, how to get started either at home or abroad, the nuts and bolts of volunteering overseas or at home, and where to find these volunteer opportunities.

find volunteer projects and other sources of information; and
appreciate existing projects, both teaching and service, both in the United States and overseas.
