Volunteers needed for CDA Cares San Diego

A CDA Cares free dental clinic is scheduled for Dec. 7-8 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego County. To help provide oral health care services to the large number of expected patients, the CDA Foundation needs volunteer dentists, dental and health professionals, lab technicians, nurses and pharmacists.

Additionally, community volunteers are needed to assist with registration, clinic setup, data entry, escorting patients, translating and much more.

Patients will receive cleanings, fillings, extractions, oral health education and assistance in finding a dentist for follow-up care.

In 2012, the CDA Foundation and CDA hosted two clinics that provided $2.8 million in dental care to 3,676 patients thanks to the generosity of volunteers and sponsors.

Registration for CDA Cares San Diego opens in July. Visit the CDA Cares page to learn how you can get involved.
