We will have the opportunity to get to 4 personal care units (with 42 residents each) and 2 chronic care units (with 30 residents each) for a possible total of 228 oral health assessments over the week!

This is a perfect opportunity to become involved in outreach activities. It’s a great cause, all the planning has been taken care of, and you won’t be alone!

All volunteer opportunities presented through the MDHA will satisfy the Professional Participation Component of the CDHM Continuing Competency Program.
