The Washington Oral Health Foundation is truly powered by volunteers, and we support dental professionals year 'round in their efforts to give back. Last week was National Volunteer Week, and WOHF highlighted some exceptional volunteers who work with the Foundation’s core programs. These are examples of volunteer opportunities that WOHF always has available, and if you are interested in volunteering with the Foundation, feel free to contact Tom Tidyman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all of our fantastic volunteers around the state who help improve and enhance oral health for all Washingtonians.
