Fall Break Brings Dental Students to Jamaica

Thirty six dental students and five faculty members traveled to Jamaica during fall break in late September. The Jamaica trip is an annual outreach event coordinated by the dental school and a Jamaican nonprofit, Great Shape! Inc.

This year the group visited the town of Ocho Rios where they spent time in four different clinics and also visited local classrooms to provide oral health instruction (more commonly known around the dental school as OHI).

Here’s a photo of the group of volunteers. The HSC posters are to thank Henry Schein Cares for their generous donation of supplies.

And the students shared some before and after photos of an anterior restoration they completed on a patient:
