UCSD Pre-Dental Society & Student-Run Free Dental Clinics Serves our Community in a Multitude of Ways

Mission Statement

The UCSD Pre-Dental Society and Student-Run Free Dental Clinic Project, in partnership with the community, provide accessible, quality healthcare for the underserved in a respectful environment in which students, health professionals, patients, and community members learn from one another.

Get Involved:

Our organization offers many opportunities for everyone including: students, dentists, community members, and professionals to give back to the community and the world. Learn about the opportunities we have to get involved locally, nationally, and internationally.

Support Us:

Our clinics rely on valuable time from our volunteers and generous donations of supplies and funds in order to function. Every bit helps. Find out how you can help.

Virtual GBMs:

Please join us for our second virtual GBM on June 11 @ 6pm. We are bringing back one of our very own member, Kenny Jones, who just received his masters degree from UCSD and did his thesis on tooth staining. He will talk about how he started his research and what he found! Afterwards, Dr. Donna Silverstein will speak about how to start your own research project. See y’all soon! Please subscribe to our listserv to receive GBM links in the future!

While we have been able to help a portion of the underserved, there are many others in our community that still need our help. As a non-profit program, the UCSD Free Dental Clinics would appreciate help through financial contributions, equipment, supplies and/or your time.
