I’ve never been on one.” That’s the starting point, admitting you have NEVER done something you have HEARD about, and THOUGHT about, but have yet TO DO from your bucket list of goals/ dreams for your life. There’s no time like the present to hear of others DOING IT and being around dynamic colleagues who have a passion for sharing their talents, skills, and heart with those less fortunate in the world we share. Get the BIG PICTURE plus DETAILS. Your life will never be the same!!!!! What are you waiting for? Session Objectives: To identify the needs for dental volunteers, basis for volunteering, qualifications of volunteers.
