Since our very first clinic in 2014, Operation Grace MN has partnered with hundreds of dental professionals throughout Minnesota to provide over $1 million worth of preventive and restorative care to underserved communities.

Dentists, dental therapists, hygienists, dental assistants, and even dental students are all needed to make these clinics a success. WE NEED YOU!!

If you would like to bring your team of dental professionals to volunteer with us, contact Melissa at mturner@operationgracemn.org now to reserve your day!
