The school's Comprehensive Care Program, staffed by seniors supervised by faculty, functions live a private dental office, matching patients with students who centralize their care. As the students form strong bonds with their patients and coordinate specialized treatment when necessary, they develop a strong sense of what the future holds if they pursue private practice.

In coordination with the American Dental Association, area dental professionals, faculty and students provide free dental cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, dental education, and in some cases, restorative treatment to Augusta-area children.

Students and faculty staff a dentistry clinic at the flea market, providing free screenings to those who otherwise might lack access to dental care.

AU students and faculty regularly participate in school and after-school dental screenings, including screenings at area Boys and Girls Clubs.

Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua ... These are just a few of the settings for the mission work routinely volunteered by Augusta University students and faculty. Their altruism is rewarded by exposure to varied populations with multiple needs, enabling them to practice their skills while providing a vital service.
