Mission: To empower volunteers to facilitate sustainable solutions in under resourced communities while fostering local cultures. Dental brigades provide Hondurans with dental hygiene care, proper oral hygiene instructions, restorative care to the teeth that can be saved and extractions for the ones that cannot. A Dental Brigade consists of dental and dental hygiene student volunteers and dental professionals to provide dental care to in-need communities. The group functions like a mobile dental unit.
