LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare and the leading orthodontics provider in the country, will hold an event at one of its Los Angeles-area offices to educate local families about the dental benefits covered under Medi-Cal.
The event, scheduled for Saturday, September 21 from 10 am to 2 pm, will take place at the Western Dental office located at 4487 E. Slauson Ave. in Maywood, Calif. Guests will learn about Medi-Cal Dental benefits and covered services while enjoying free food and refreshments, a live DJ, and activities for kids. The public is welcome, and there is no charge for the event.
“Many patients on Medi-Cal don’t realize they also have dental coverage,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer at Western Dental. “Benefits for eligible patients have never been better, and we want to get the word out.”
Western Dental recently held a similar event at its Huntington Park office that attracted nearly 100 attendees. Western Dental is expecting over 125 people at the Maywood event Sept. 21.
Western Dental welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (previously known as Denti-Cal) at this location and all of its California offices, in addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients. Western Dental is the leading provider of dental services to the Medi-Cal program, which provides health care benefits for more than 13 million low-income individuals and families in California. Western Dental is committed to continuing to partner with the State to help improve the program.
