Starting a Chapter

Project Smile Global aims to fight oral health disparities through starting chapters with motivated individuals from around the world. According the World Health Organization, close to 3.5 billion people struggle with oral related diseases. That is a 50% percent increase in oral health problems in the past 30 years! Join us in bringing these numbers down through fundraising and educating underserved communities in your local area. Learn more about starting a chapter below.

Know Your Local Community

Conduct research on underserved areas of your local community, as well as surveying to gain knowledge into oral disparities your community might face. Familiarize yourself with local dentists, community leaders, and dental schools in your area.

Recruit Your Team

Each chapter requires a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer in their team. Remember to share this guide with your team, and continue expanding your chapter!
