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. The Texas State Board of Dental Examiners provides temporary licenses for out-of-state dentists for charitable purposes such as the AGD Foundation oral cancer screenings. Interested volunteers must apply for a temporary license via the AGD Foundation by March 15, 2021. Access the temporary license application and 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 March 15, 2021. These documents must be valid through June 11, 2021. Please fax documents to the AGD Foundation at 312.335.3426. For more information, contact us at AGDF@adgcommunications.com.
