Health Professionals

If you are a licensed health professional interested in donating your time and skills to the health and well-being of the underserved in San Diego County, we wholeheartedly welcome your participation. Some of our volunteer dentists come as often as once a week, while others come once every few months. The majority of our volunteer faculty attends at the clinic once a month. We are appreciative of any commitment that you can make. All attendings at the Free Clinic Project must be or become members of the salaried or voluntary faculty of UCSD School of Medicine. If you would like to become a member of the voluntary faculty, are already a member and would like to sign up or if you would like additional information, please contact Dr. Sussi Yamaguchi at sussi.yamaguchi@ucsdpds.org.

If you would like to schedule a tour with our clinics or need to fill out any paperwork, please contact our Professional Volunteer Coordinator at enrique.corona@ucsdpds.org.

Pre-Dental Students

Please complete the application and submit it at one of our UCSD Pre-Dental Society meetings. You are required to complete a CPR class and a volunteer training session before turning in the volunteer application.

If you have any questions regarding the application, please contact Danielle Nghiem at danielle.nghiem@ucsdpds.org. You do not have to be a UCSD student to volunteer at our clinics, however you are not allowed to volunteer in clinic until you have been approved and have received proper training through the UCSD Student-Run Free Dental Clinics. We encourage that you attend our organizational meetings for more information about volunteering.

Please review the checklist before submitting your application. Thank you.
