Healing Smiles in Jamaica

Forty-eight students and eight faculty members travelled to Jamaica during the fall break in September for an oral health mission. The volunteers treated approximately 1,201 underserved patients in three clinics (Brompton, Belmont and Torrington). They also volunteered at a clinic their hotel designed to serve hotel employees. Most of the treatments involved fillings, cleanings, exams and extractions. In addition to the treatments, Dugoni School students and faculty visited local classrooms to provide oral health instruction to children.
