Just in time for the start of National Volunteer Month!

50 Facts for 50 Years
Fact #14

Volunteering not only helps others, but it can provide a sense of purpose. According to the Mayo Clinic Health System, it can also improve physical and mental health.

An easy way to reap these benefits is by volunteering with the AGD Foundation at ADG2022. The Foundation needs volunteers to help conduct their free oral cancer screening program. CE credit is available.

Whether you're a dentist, hygienist or dental student, there's a place for you.

She also offers advice on how all dentists and dental students can remain committed to the pursuit of excellence.
