Walk-in volunteers welcome at CDA Cares Modesto Oct. 26-27

Also: Sharing the experience through social media

The CDA Foundation’s volunteer-run dental clinic, CDA Cares, will take place Oct. 26-27 at the Modesto Centre Plaza.

Dentists (restorative, pediatric and oral surgeons) and dental and medical professionals, including dental assistants, doctors and nurses, as well as community volunteers who can guide patients and assist with language translation, should first read the volunteer FAQ for general information and requirements. Walk-in volunteers should then report to the DoubleTree Hotel, Sacramento Room, in Modesto during clinic hours from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Maps and more information are available on the Foundation website.

Using social media to spread the word

CDA Cares volunteers and fans can easily use social media to express why they volunteer at these events and encourage their peers, family and friends to join them Oct. 26-27 at the Modesto Centre Plaza. Visit the social media toolkit for simple steps to sharing, and connect with the CDA Cares Facebook page and CDA Cares Social Hub to follow the photos, conversation and memories.

And while every CDA Cares can be considered successful in terms of the number of patients served — 1,950 on average — and the number of no-cost dental services provided, longtime volunteers say a lot has changed since the first clinic took shape in the Central Valley city.
