CDA Cares Pomona 'Social Hub' now live


Be part of the action at the CDA Cares dental event in Pomona by viewing on-site photos from the Pomona Fairplex at the revamped "Social Hub." (cdafoundation.org/socialhub)

The CDA Cares social hub is a landing page where attendees can view everything being said about the clinic on social media. The Social Hub will now pull activity on various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+ into one central location. All attendees will have to do to participate is use the #cdacares hashtag when sharing their photos, posts and tweets.

It is estimated that more than 2,000 patients will receive oral health care at the Nov. 21-22 clinic thanks to the 1,700 volunteers helping to provide fillings, extractions, cleanings and oral health education at the two-day clinic.

The CDA Foundation and CDA developed CDA Cares to provide dental services and oral health education at no charge to Californians who experience barriers to care and to raise awareness with the public and policymakers about the importance of good oral health and the need for a state dental director and state oral health infrastructure to support oral health.

Since 2012, the CDA Cares volunteer dental program has provided $7.5 million in care to more than 10,000 people.

Walk-in volunteers are still welcome. Dentists and dental professionals are needed for Friday, Nov. 21 at the Pomona Fairplex, 1101 W. McKinley Avenue, Pomona. Go to volunteer registration at Building 9.
