UNC Chapel Hill- SNDA CAARE Clinic
Hello all! The SNDA CAARE Clinic schedule and volunteer sign-ups are now available for you. Please visit the
website http://www.uncsnda.com/caare-clinic/ , go to the volunteer tab, and log-in with password
“earlybird2014”. Once logged in please sign up for only ONE date until further notice. Eventually you will be
able to sign up to volunteer on other dates, but please wait until we open the schedule for that. If you sign-up
for a particular date you are expected to be in attendance, and if for some reason you are unable to volunteer in
the clinic for that night, you must notify us and find someone to replace you. There will be a power point
presentation online at this website and you are expected to review that powerpoint to allow you to familiarize
yourself with the clinic prior to arriving on your scheduled date. Please only sign up in the "Pre-Dental" section
beside your respective school. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

-Staying updated on research and current debates in your dental community not only
gives you an edge when networking, it allows you to broaden your interests and get a full
perspective on the dental industry as a whole.
-Research is changing daily; in a competitive dental school setting, those who are
involved, knowledgeable, and opinionated may appear as a stronger applicant.

- “In Our Community” includes upcoming free clinics needing volunteers, events
scheduled with or BTG chapter of ASDA, and Health PAC related opportunities.
