The SDDA and the St. Francis Mission have created a partnership that is helping to improve the oral health of the members of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. SDDA member volunteers have helped hundreds of people living on the Rosebud Reservation, however there continues to be a great need for dental care. The SDDA and the Mission are seeking more volunteers to provide care to patients at the Mission's dental clinic. No credentialing is required - volunteers need only a valid license to practice in South Dakota. Volunteers can provide care according to their availability - anywhere from one day to a full week. Interested volunteers should contact Paul Knecht or Brenda Goeden at the SDDA office by calling 605-224-9133 or email to paul.knecht@sddental or brenda.goeden@sddental.org. We are currently seeking volunteers for the following dates in 2016: July 11-15; September 12-16 and September 19-23. For more information about the St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic go to: http://sfmdental.com/.
