Two-day San Jose Dental Clinic Provides More Than $1.6 Million in Care
Date:5/22/2013

Sacramento, Calif. (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

Hosted by the California Dental Association Foundation and CDA, the CDA Cares free dental clinic provided more than $1.6 million in charitable dental services during the two-day event held May 18-19 in San Jose.

The California Dental Association Foundation and the California Dental Association hosted the clinic to provide free dental services and oral health education to Californians who experience barriers to care. This is the third clinic held by CDA and CDAF in the past 12 months.

“CDA Cares highlights the tremendous oral health needs of our state,” said Ken Wallis, DDS, chair of CDA Cares San Jose. “To know that we’ve helped more than 2,200 patients in just two days is a rewarding experience, and we know there are many more Californians in need of oral health care services.”

While the final number of procedures provided at CDA Cares is being tallied, preliminary estimates indicate nearly 2,300 tooth extractions were necessary.

“Education and prevention are the foundation of good oral health, and unfortunately many of the extractions we see at these events could be avoided with preventive care,” said CDA President Lindsey Robinson, DDS. “Sadly, we’re seeing the results of the state eliminating virtually all adult Denti-Cal services.”

Nearly 1,600 volunteers donated their time and services at the event, including more than 800 health professionals – dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, nurses and lab technicians – as well as hundreds of community volunteers who assisted with registration, translation, data entry and escorting patients.

“The goal of CDA Cares is to relieve pain and infection, and to see someone come in to the clinic in pain and literally leave smiling is truly gratifying,” said Don Rollofson, DMD, chair of the CDA Foundation.

During CDA Cares, dentists and dental professionals provided more than 11,000
