Dental Community Fellowship

Impacting our dental world in response to God's love and for his glory.


Due to the current pandemic, DCF international travel is currently on hold. DCF continues to be active in the lives of dental students at MUSC as we socially distance.  We are hopeful to resume normal ministry activities as soon as possible.

Dental Community Fellowship is the student chapter of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations at the College of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina.
