The California Dental Association Foundation and CDA are hosting a CDA Cares dental clinic to provide oral health care and education at no charge to approximately 2,000 patients. Dentists, dental and health professionals, and community volunteers are donating their time and skills to this two-day event.
Since 2012, with the help of 12,918 volunteers, CDA Cares has provided $13.1 million in care to 16,080 patients.
An estimated 10 million Californians experience barriers to dental care. CDA Cares educates the public and policymakers about the importance of good oral health and the need for a state Medi-Cal dental program (Denti-Cal) that works. The program is chronically underfunded and leaves many, including the working poor, without access to care.
