Outreach in the U.S. and Abroad


BOCA organizes several outreach programs in the United States and various international locations every year, typically for a one week duration during Spring Break of Summer.  These programs offer our dental students and our faculty members the opportunity to provide donated dental care to underserved communities, and gain valuable experiences while helping others.

BOCA's first international program was took place 2004, and over the years we have led outreach programs in the following countries:

Dominican Republic
Mexico
Fiji Tonga
Ghana Vietnam
Guatemala
  


In 2012, BOCA began offering domestic outreach programs, in partnership with Remote Area Medical (RAM).  Groups of approximately 20 dental students, accompanied by SDM faculty members, provide donated dental care to underserved communities within the United States.  The majority of our outreach programs with RAM take place in Tennessee and Kentucky, and are typically a weekend experience.
