Dentists, dental professionals: Registration open for CDA Cares San Bernardino

The CDA Foundation’s volunteer-run dental program, CDA Cares, is coming to San Bernardino, Calif., Sept. 27-28, and online registration for the clinic is now open. Around 1,950 people who experience barriers to dental care receive no-cost services and oral health education at each CDA Cares. The September clinic will take place at the National Orange Show Events Center.

General dentists, oral surgeons, dental hygienists, dental assistants and lab technicians are needed to provide extractions, fillings, cleanings and a limited number of root canals, dentures and partial dentures.

Oral surgeons who can volunteer on Friday, Sept. 27, are especially needed.

The Foundation additionally seeks community volunteers who can guide patients to different areas of the clinic, assist with language translation and help with clinic set-up and tear-down. All interested volunteers can read more about the clinic philosophy and treatment approach.

In addition to providing oral health services, CDA Cares events aim to educate the public and policymakers about the importance of good oral health and the ongoing need for an adequately funded dental safety net.
