Volunteers Needed for Oral Cancer ScreeningsDental health professionals have a responsibility to educate patients and the public about oral cancer. Join in the fight by volunteering to help with free oral cancer screenings of scientific session attendees and employees of the Fairmont Austin Hotel on Friday, June 11, at AGD2021 in Austin, Texas.
In order to screen patients at AGD2021, dentists and hygienists must be licensed in the state of Texas. Out-of-state volunteers were welcome to apply for a temporary license from the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners; however, the deadline has now passed. At this time, we are only accepting in-state/Texas-licensed dentists and hygienists. In-state dentists and hygienists can sign up online for one or more of the available time slots between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. There will be participation credit available. The AGD Foundation will provide fully equipped workstations for volunteers.
All dentist and hygienist volunteers — those licensed in Texas and those licensed out-of-state — are required to submit to the AGD Foundation a copy of their practice license and proof of professional liability insurance no later than June 4, 2021. These documents must be valid through June 11, 2021. Please scan and send documents to the AGD Foundation at AGDF@adgcommunications.com. For more information, contact us at AGDF@adgcommunications.com or 518-694-5545.
