CDA Cares Sacramento provides $2 million in dental care

Wednesday, Apr 8, 2015

Hosted by the California Dental Association Foundation and CDA, the CDA Cares  two-day dental clinic in Sacramento provided $2 million in charitable dental services to 2,080 people March 27-28.

In addition to providing dental services and oral health education at no charge to Californians who experience barriers to care, CDA Cares educates the public and policymakers about the importance of good oral health and the need for an adequately funded dental safety net, which includes a well-functioning Denti-Cal program and a state dental director who can develop cost-effective, quality programs to improve the oral health of Californians.

During the two-day event, dentists and dental professionals provided nearly 14,000 dental procedures, including fillings, extractions, cleanings and oral health education. Volunteer technicians in the clinic’s dental lab area worked to provide 377 complete and partial dentures and repairs.

Nearly 1,800 volunteers donated their time and services at the event, including 1,015 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 California Dental Association Foundation is planning another CDA Cares event in Fresno Oct. 2-3, 2015.
