Giving Back to Community
There is a dental health emergency across the nation and particularly in Mississippi. Thousands of individuals are unable to afford basic dental care. Through new programs such as the Community Outreach Dental Externship program, the inaugural Dental Mission Week and continued participation in Give Kids A Smile®, the School of Dentistry has provided more than 5,000 dental procedures at no charge. That's more than $1.2 million in non-compensated care to Mississippi's underserved populations. At the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry, our focus is on community service!
