Dental students serve in Equador over spring break

June 11, 2019
Dozens of our students spent their spring break on a mission trip to Ecuador

More than 30 of our dental students spent their spring break providing dental services in Quito, Ecuador. The trip was organized by Dental Community Fellowship and led by its Director, Dr. William Sasser, Class of 1973. They were mentored by 18 graduate dentists and completed almost 1,500 clinical procedures, with the majority being preventive and restorative services. According to their mentors, these young students were enthusiastic, cooperative, and hardworking. Their willingness to spend spring break serving others at their own personal expense is most commendable. Kelly McCorkle, Class of 2021, shared this video of their week of service, friendship, and faith.
