The 1,000 Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on care of the less fortunate children in Mexico who suffer from lack of dental care and from maxillo-facial deformities such as cleft palate.
Due to the popular success of our student participation program in the dental clinic, it has become necessary to monitor the number of students who work in each dental clinic. If you are a dental or pre dental student you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your place at the August clinic. Please include your school name, whether you are pre-dental or a dental student, your status at the school (soph. Jr etc.), and any previous dental experience. No experience is necessary, and we like a variety of backgrounds. We need to manage this program because of its popularity, over a dozen pre-dent programs exist in southern California. You will not have a seat on the bus, not be able to attend the clinic if you have not reserved a position with Dr. Irwin, the dental clinic supervisor. You will receive a confirmation email if there is an open position. If you don’t receive a confirmation, please do not attend. Every attempt will be made to be fair to all students in rotation of positions. TSF greatly appreciates your commitment to our children.
