Are you ready to volunteer? The ADA has compiled a range of resources that will get you ready for the volunteering opportunities ahead. These resources, which address the idea of volunteering generally, as well as providing practical advice on your next steps, will assist you in making effective use of your skills and expertise.
The ADA believes that dentists, allied dental personnel and others should support dental volunteer programs with the end goal of empowering local communities to provide their own ongoing care.
While not exhaustive, this document lists a number of important questions you can ask a volunteer organisation prior to embarking on a project.
The FDI World Dental Federation suggests that all volunteers in oral health follow the basic guidelines outlined in this document.
