Dentists and hygienists at all stages of their careers can benefit from the experience of volunteering with Filling the Gap Dental Outreach.
Benefits of volunteering with Filling the Gap include:
- A sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in using your valuable skills to help others when they are most in need
- A great learning environment
- Exposure to a patient population that has limited access to dental care, resulting in unique dental needs
- A great way to network with other colleagues and learn from one another.
Newly qualified dentists and hygienists find our clinic to be a relaxed environment where they can build on their clinical skills.
More experienced dentists and hygienists enjoy being able to use the expertise they have learned throughout their careers as a way of giving back. Retired dentists have the opportunity to remain registered with the RCDSO at a reduced fee, provided they commit to working in a volunteer capacity only.
Our patients are sincerely grateful for the genuine compassion shown to them by our volunteers. In many cases we are able to provide relief from pain and all of our patients leave with the reassurance that they have somewhere to turn when faced with urgent dental needs in the future.
