IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, November 8th, Pacific Dental Services (PDS) had over 250 employees, affiliated dentists and family members set off on a one day "We Serve" outreach trip to SPA 6/South Area Health District in the Watts area of Los Angeles. The site was Powerhouse Church, where they were able to beautify the building & property, construct a playground, level and landscape a nearby abandoned lot, and provide free dentistry to over 150 community members. The day commenced with a Free BBQ for the community and all those who worked hard to make the area a better place. "We Serve" is an integral part of the PDS mission and a foundation to PDS' corporate responsibility, encouraging willing employees and dentists to give back to less fortunate communities.

PDS partnered with World Impact, Inc., a Christian mission organization committed to sharing God's love in America's inner cities through ministry to children, teenagers, adults and families. For more than 35 years World Impact has ministered holistically -- serving peoples' physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Together PDS and the World Impact Watts Office decided that the Powerhouse Church, located near the Imperial Courts Housing Project, was the site that would most benefit from PDS' efforts. This neighborhood relies on this church as a safe haven for families to gather for not only worship but also for medical and dental services. PDS volunteers painted and carpeted the interior of the building, landscaped the outer gardens with new ground cover and soil, added onto the existing playground, constructed planter benches and beautified a nearby abandoned lot through leveling and landscaping. World Impact Health Ministry assisted PDS in planning the exams, cleanings, fillings, restorations, and extractions to over 150 adults and children.

With supplies donated by Henry Schein(R), Sirona Dental Systems, Patterson Dental and Kerr TotalCare each patient received the highest quality care during their treatment and was given instruction on basic dental hygiene, along with a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. Together, PDS and these organizations made the dreams of many become a reality.

Kevin Sauer, Manager of Professional Recruiting said, "It was incredible to see the PDS team working together to provide a service to the community. The impact we had on the families who live there will last forever. They were so grateful to us for helping them. I don't know who got more out of the day; the people who lived there, or our team."

Since 1994, PDS has helped develop over 180 dental offices throughout California, Nevada, Arizona recently adding offices in Colorado and Texas.
