Service learning for dental students

ACTS Program

The Advanced Clinical Training & Services (ACTS) program is a service learning program in which fourth-year dental students provide dental services for eight months in an underserved community; either in fixed safety-net clinics or through the Colorado Smilemakers mobile dental clinic.  Under the supervision of practicing dentists, students provide dental care to children and adults whose access to services is constrained by financial, geographical, physical or medical factors.  There are over 25 clinical sites, including community health centers and rural communities where the mobile van travels.  

For more information on the ACTS program, please contact Robert Berg.
