During dental school, he utilized both his dental training and his ability to speak Spanish fluently, to serve as a supervisor in the local Indian-Chicano health clinic. Working closely with faculty from his Dental Program, he was instrumental in providing much needed services to many who did not have the resources to provide for themselves.

There are many of the surgical aspects of Dentistry that interests Dr. Dastrup. As a matter of fact, during dental school, he participated in a lengthy externship in Oral Surgery.
