Schulich Dentistry Set to Launch New Oral Health Community Outreach Pilot Project

Schulich Dentistry is preparing to launch a new experiential learning pilot project that will take fourth-year students off campus and into the community particularly to the equity seeking groups.

Beginning this winter, a small group of students will be joining clinics to work alongside dentists. The pilot will be expanded in the summer of 2022 to include communities across southwestern Ontario and international locations, including Rwanda and Uganda.

Learnings from the pilot project will help create a new community engagement elective for all clinical dentistry students, replacing the former training students received through the Dental Outreach Community Service program.
