About

In 2013, we opened the St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic to give Lakota adults and children the dental care they have long needed. A recent American Dental Association study found that 90 percent of the Lakota people on Rosebud Reservation have chronic tooth decay or gum disease.

Volunteer dental hygienists and assistants are needed to help staff the St. Francis Mission Dental clinic. Opportunities are available year-round and temporary housing on the reservation is provided. Experiences are generally 5 days in length, but any help is welcome.*

* If you are from another state, you will need to apply for a temporary license to work in South Dakota: http://www.sfmdental.com/volunteer/temporary-license/
