Operation Grace MN is a volunteer driven organization with 2 employees.

If you would like to be part of our team providing an essential and potentially life changing service to those in need we would love to have you.  The pay is terrible, but the rewards (usually grateful smiles and a simple “thank you”) are priceless.

How you can help:

Treat Patients:

Licensed dental professionals are needed to provide patient treatment and care to uninsured low income patients unable to access dental care (without you and other volunteers). Must be licensed in the state of MN.
Sterilize Instruments:

Must be familiar with dental instruments, infection-control protocols, and tray setup. Assists patient treatment by sterilization of used instruments and tray setup.
Data Entry of Patient Information:

Enter patient data and health history into our patient software (Eaglesoft) in preparation for dental treatment of patients and their dental chart.
Maintain Portable Dental Equipment:

Retied individuals with background in repair of dental equipment are sought to help with scheduled quarterly or emergency repair and maintenance of portable dental units, air compressor and, sterilization equipment.
Van Driver:

Retired professional drivers or volunteers with experience driving RVs. Must have exceptional driving record. Drive Lil’Flossie, our dental van, from (and return to) heated storage to dental clinic site partner, park, and hook up electricity to prepare the van for a dental clinic. We also have a Chevy 2500 Cargo Van with portable dental equipment that needs to get to and from clinics. (During the clinic you are free to surf the net, read, do homework, or learn to participate with other duties not requiring a dental professional.)
Set Up / Take Down Portable Dental Clinic:

Operation Grace MN is gearing up to provide dental care in schools and other sites with high populations of low-income uninsured people. Teams of one to three people willing to help our drivers set up our portable equipment. No dental training is necessary but simple mechanical, electrical, aptitude is necessary. Familiarity with air compression and suction is very helpful.
