South San Francisco Dental Care Is Hosting A Day Of Free Dental Care
The sun will shine a little brighter on Sunday, October 18th, when South San Francisco Dental Care hosts their fifth annual day of free dental care, Smiles for All. From dawn til dusk, volunteers will work tirelessly to give the under-served in our community – many who lined up before dawn – a free examination followed by a cleaning, filling or extraction.
“We want our community to know that we’re here for them – whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance. To us, dentistry is much more than just fixing a person’s teeth. It’s also about restoring their sense of dignity, and hope. ” said Dr. Kelvin Choi.
After four years, hosting their day of free dental care, South San Francisco Dental Care has donated $200,000 worth of dental treatment to over 400 neighbors in need. A generous donor to numerous causes in the city, their exceptional community service has been recognized by the South San Francisco Mayor’s office..
The event will take place on Sunday, October 18th at the South San Francisco Dental Care office at 2400 Westborough Blvd in South San Francisco. No appointments necessary.
Patients will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis. For more info about Smiles for All, please call 650-273-7309 or visit CLICK HERE
