Community Outreach

Community Outreach Clinic

The Columbus Dental Society has a long history of giving back to those less fortunate in the community - and many of the free clinics supported by our member dentists were in fact started by members.  These clinics are volunteer-driven and volunteer-dependent, and offer needed dental care to some of our city's most vulnerable citizens - the uninsured, homeless, working poor, children and the elderly.
