The Mobile Dental Clinic provides over 100 children comprehensive dental treatment and preventative measures and education to the children and parents. If you are in need of help, please contact us here or call us at 626-358-3486 to find out how to register.
At the first dental screening we were shocked by the number of client children in need of dental care.
85% of the children screened had at least one or more visually decayed teeth.
15% of the children were identified as urgency code 4, pain and/or abscess present.
Last year’s Mobile Dental Clinic we were told children were found to be more in need!
One 12 year old received 18 fillings for cavities.
Another 13 year old is received follow-up care with four root canals.
What happens when Foothill Unity Center, Inc. partners with USC’s Ostrow School of Dentistry?
80 to 120 children from low‐income families receive free dental services that they are unable to get elsewhere! (82 children were served in 2014, 102 in 2013)
The $51,000 cost to host USC’s Mobile Dental Program results in $150K to $190K in services! ($149,945 in 2014; $175,000 in 2013)
This is a community effort that brings smiles to the hearts and faces of clients and community supporters!
