The Washington Oral Health Foundation Needs Volunteers!

Interested in being a WOHF volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club in your community?  It’s a one-time commitment. There will be food and families having fun.  You won’t regret it.  

Volunteer to be a host at our Meet the Dentist table. Give out free oral hygiene kits. Let kids check out real decayed teeth, not so real skulls, and help them practice brushing the big teeth.  Ask them to share their craziest tooth stories and answer parent’s questions.
