Many people are familiar with "Doctors Without Borders", a humanitarian organization where physicians (as well as other health professionals) give aid to people in need.

The website didn't mention anything specifically for dentists, but I was wondering are you guys familiar with any similar humanitarian organizations in which dentists can take part in?

Google the Hatian Health Foundation if you'd like to find out a bit about an organiztion. It was founded by(and still run by) an orthodontist, and has done some great work in the town of Jeremie, Haiti including building an entire clinic for medical and dental treatment.
