This year, the Dental Brigade will occur over winter break in January 2016. Washington University's Dental Brigade will embark on its fifth trip to Honduras to provide dental care and promote dental health in underprivileged communities with Junior Connie Gan as the leader.
Our team of specialists and undergraduate students work together to provide urgent and preventive dental services in communities with limited access to healthcare. Each of our community partners receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are treated with fillings, cleanings and extractions, and are given dental hygiene workshops. Between brigades, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up to insure any dental procedures were successful.
