Lab Techs are needed to fabricate stayplates and dentures, and to repair dentures and partials.
Dental lab technicians, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, translators, dentists, specialists — including oral surgeons — hygienists, assistants, dental students, and other members of the community willing to donate their time.
In addition to providing dental services, volunteers are needed to escort patients and translate, dispense medication, setup and tear down the clinic, register patients and volunteers, conduct exit interviews, enter data, provide oral health education and more.
CDA Cares will provide dental services at no charge to patients who experience barriers to care including the uninsured, underinsured, unemployed and others in need. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
The main goal of CDA Cares is to relieve pain and infection. With the help of community volunteers, dental professionals will donate their time and skills to offer cleanings, fillings, extractions, oral health education and assistance in finding a dental home.
