Successful Dental Mission to the Dominican Republic

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Understand how differences in dental procedures, care, and technologies contribute to the overall oral health of a community
  • See how they can get involved and make a difference by traveling to locations that are in need of oral healthcare professionals.

Courtney Michelson is a third-year dental student at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Recently, she and a group of 24 fellow TUSDM dental students, three TUSDM faculty members, four dentists from the Massachusetts Hispanic Dental Association, and five pre-dental students traveled to the Dominican Republic to provide dental care to those who needed it the most. The group was stationed at the UNPH dental school in Santa Domingo, where they performed a variety of clinical procedures for the region’s populace. This trip, organized by the Tufts Hispanic Dental Association, marked the 13th incarnation of the yearly mission. In this podcast, Courtney shares some of her experiences, clinical procedures, and insights into the oral health of the Dominican community.
