Chicanos Por La Causa Joins Dental Care for Arizona Coalition

Dental Care for Arizona, an action group dedicated to increasing access to high quality oral healthcare for all Arizonans, added Chicanos Por La Causa, Inc. (CPLC) to its growing ranks of community organizations in support of licensed dental therapy.

“Arizona’s Latino children are disproportionately afflicted with poor oral healthcare,” said Guillermo Velez, Vice President of CPLC Integrated Health Services. “We support dental therapy as a common-sense solution because it will provide rural and underserved communities with greater access to quality dental care.”

CPLC has long supported innovative solutions to complex community challenges, working to provide education, housing, economic development, and health opportunities to underserved populations in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. Its support of Dental Care for Arizona’s mandate to bring about better oral healthcare, in a fiscally responsible manner, is indicative of CPLC’s tireless efforts to promote stronger and healthier communities.

In addition to CPLC, Dental Care for Arizona recently welcomed the Arizona Dental Hygienists Association, the Arizona Farm Bureau, Valle del Sol Community Health and the Arizona Rural Health Coalition to its growing ranks of forward-thinking organizations in support of dental therapy.
