MODESTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Dental & Orthodontics volunteers were doing what they do best last weekend – providing dental care to Californians who need it.
As a partner and lead supporter of the California Dental Association’s Foundation, Western Dental had volunteers from various offices and corporate headquarters playing key roles at the CDA Cares free clinic event at the Modesto Centre Plaza.
CDA Cares is a program of the California Dental Association (CDA) Foundation that allows dental and medical professionals, including dentists, oral surgeons, hygienists, dental assistants, lab techs, physicians, nurses, and pharmacists, to provide free dental services to those in need, with support from other community volunteers.
The CDA reports that an average of 1,950 Californians receive care at each event, reflecting the significant need for dental care.
Western Dental, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare and the leading orthodontics provider in the country, is a frequent supporter of CDA Cares events around the state.
The Modesto CDA Cares outreach was the 10th consecutive event that Western Dental has been proud to co-sponsor. It has provided a volunteer workforce, bilingual support, and supplies for the events that have helped thousands of Californians in locations like Pomona, Sacramento, Stockton, San Mateo, Bakersfield, and Anaheim.
“We know that far too many Californians are not getting sufficient access to the care they need,” said John Luther, DDS, chief dental officer of Western Dental. “For us, joining with CDA Cares is a great way to serve and support communities where we have offices. Our team members are inspired and energized by the work every time.”
