How the Program Works
Examinations and x-rays are provided through a mobile portable dental clinic that is brought to each agency during a weeknight. This aspect of outreach removes several barriers to treatment that individuals may find challenging.
Treatment is provided at the dental clinic at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Although parking is provided free of charge, individuals must find their own transportation to the sessions.
Although the program is a mandatory component for the students 4th year dental curriculum, the success of the DOCS program relies on the selfless efforts of the countless volunteers. DOCS is truly a collaborative effort. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Pedro Alba
Last year, we were able to complete nearly 300 appointments and delivered almost $40,000 in treatment to patients in need. "This is a great opportunity for the people of London to receive the dental care they need, as well as provide a true learning experience for our students outside the walls of Schulich Dentistry," said Dr. Harinder Sandhu, former Director, Schulich Dentistry.
