Everyone can be a volunteer on DDS4Kids Team. Minor children going with a parent, college students, dental students, dental professional, and non-dental volunteers, all are needed and welcomed.
A volunteer must be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult in order to be on the team. Our youngest volunteer was 12 and oldest so far was 75. As long as you can help with any of these tasks: giving dental services, holding ligth for the dentists, handing out toys to the children, making the children laugh, cleaning the instruments, keeping children in line, bagging medicine in ziplock bags, as long as you are willing and able to do any task in contributing to the whole effort, you can be a volunteer.
