|UAB School of Dentistry||UAB Dentistry Cares Community Day 2015|
UAB Dentistry Cares Community Day, held each fall, brings together over 500 volunteers for an exciting one-day charitable event. Working alongside community volunteers, UAB Dentistry faculty, staff, students and graduates give their time to make free dental care available to hundreds of low and no-income adults from Birmingham-area shelters and other local agencies. Community Day volunteers provide urgent dental care along with extensive entry and exit oral health care counseling. A high priority is given to patients suffering from dental infections or pain. On-site wellness activities, including blood pressure checks and oral cancer screenings, are also offered to patients during the event. Local dentists pitch in to support the event, volunteering on Community Day and assisting with limited follow-up treatment, as needed. With the help of generous sponsor and community support, UAB Dentistry is, proudly, one of the first dental schools in the country to host this type of benevolent event. We welcome volunteers from the dental profession, as well community volunteers with no dental experience who serve important supportive roles.
