Mission: The SonBridge Dental Clinic provides donation-only basic dental care to those who cannot afford traditional care. It provides education in oral health to prevent emergency care and to enhance overall well-being. SonBridge serves anyone who needs help without regard to race, gender, religious belief or affiliation.
The SonBridge Community Fellow will work with staff and volunteers to complete these projects as a foundation for future operations:
- Create a process to track patients applying for service, those served, and their demographics. Interface with SonBridge's partner Helpline. Track all new patients through process.
- Create a structure to track outcomes - both statistics and stories. Track outcome statistics for all new patients.
- Benchmark similar dental clinics especially those in the Northwest. Identify staffing levels, volunteer support, and funding support.
- Assess and identify key drivers of volunteer satisfaction for the clinic. Create and implement a volunteer satisfaction survey.
