ANAHEIM, Calif., May 2, 2018 – Last weekend, Western Dental was busy doing what it does best – providing dental care to Californians who need it.
As a partner and lead supporter of the California Dental Association’s Foundation, Western Dental had 40 volunteers from its nearby offices and corporate headquarters join the April 27-28 CDA Cares free clinic event at the Anaheim Convention Center.
CDA Cares is a program of the California Dental Association (CDA) Foundation that allows volunteer dentists, oral surgeons, hygienists, dental assistants, lab techs, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and community volunteers to provide free dental services to those in need.
The CDA reports that an average of 1,950 Californians receive care at each event, reflecting the significant need.
Western Dental, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare, is a frequent supporter of CDA Cares events around the state. The Anaheim CDA Cares outreach was the eighth consecutive event that Western Dental has been proud to cosponsor, provide a volunteer workforce, and supplies for the events that have helped thousands of Californians in locations like Pomona, Sacramento, Stockton, San Mateo, Bakersfield, and Anaheim.
“Western Dental has a century long history of serving the underserved in our now 191 offices throughout California. We are members of those communities and passionate about our commitment to give back,” said John Luther, DDS, chief dental officer of Western Dental. “We especially enjoyed being part of the Anaheim event, since our home office is in nearby Orange and we grew up in this area over the last century. It was quite meaningful to us.”
