Why: To raise money for McGill Dentistry's Outreach Program. The Dental Outreach program works with the Montréal community to provide free basic dental care to those who cannot access private dental care due to psychological disability or financial hardship. As Quebec’s only completely mobile dental clinic, dental chairs and lights, sterilization equipment and dental instruments are packed into a truck and transported around the city to provide free dental care to individuals living in poverty. McGill dental students, dentists, as well as many volunteers made it possible to hold a total of 14 mobile clinics last year on the island of Montreal. Four additional clinics were held at the Montreal General Hospital, where students were able to perform more elaborate procedures such as radiographic diagnosis as well as fillings, and tooth extractions.
