USC dental students provide care in Kenya

More than 40 dental students from the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles recently provided care at a Kenyan dental clinic where they also distributed toothbrushes and taught locals about oral hygiene.

The students collected donated dental supplies and equipment and raised $175,000 to finance the clinic, which treated about 200 Kenyans earlier this month, according to a Los Angeles Times story.

The students, who provided dental care under the guidance of professors and a local dentist, also handed out 15,000 toothbrushes.

They are part of the USC Dental Humanitarian Outreach Program, a nonprofit organization that has organized trips to Colombia and Honduras.
