I got a position to volunteer in a hospital but my supervisor said we must commit to department per shift. I want to pick a department that will benefit me and my major, dental hygiene the most. I am most interested in working in the ER, pediatrics, front desk at ICU AND CVU, and maybe the gift shop.

I do not see where any volunteer position would aid you in dental hygiene. Volunteers to not work on patients. Volunteers I have seen in hospitals perform shifts on information desks and gift shops mostly. They also help with things you normally do not think of such as assisting in gardens.
Beyond that there is cleaning up, getting coffee and warm blankets, etc. Nothing that would help in dental hygiene. Without some certification you cannot even help the patients brush their teeth because that is butting something into the patient.1
