Our Dentists Care - Helping The Community

Thank you to our Clark County Dental Society Dentists who continually volunteer their dental derives in our community. They are passionate about taking care of people and helping them with their dental needs.

The following are some of the dental clinics where our dentists are volunteering.

Children's Dental Health Day 

Children's Dental Health Day is held in February at Clark College Hygiene School. 

The Clark County Dental Society, Clark College, WOHF, Free Clinic of SW Washington, Medical Teams International, and Ronald McDonald House Charities all partner together to make this day successful. 

What makes our event unique is that the patients are able to have their remaining treatment needs completed at Free Clinic of SW Washington, OHSU, and many of the volunteering dentists' private offices at no charge. As a result, our numbers have decreased every year as the need is being met by our yearlong efforts.CDHD will continue to serve a purpose in visibly making the public aware of the resources available to the low income and uninsured, so that those who are in need can be enrolled.

Our volunteers treated over a hundred patients each year. The procedures included x-rays, 1, 2, and 3 surface restorations, stainless steel crowns, pulpotomies, extractions, sealants, and fluoride applications. 

Thank you to our volunteering dentists and Dr. Peter Lubisich IV, Chairman of Children's Dental Health Day Committee.

Children's Dental Health Day 2012 

Our 4th Annual Children's Dental Day was held on February 4, 2011. Thanks to the collective efforts of many volunteers, dentists and staff, and brilliantly organized by Dr. Peter Lubisich, 267 children received much needed dental care. These children received fillings, extractions, root canals, sealants and fluoride treatment. 

Volunteers came from Clark College Dental Hygiene School, OHSU School of Dentistry, Clark County Skills Center and 29 local dental offices in Clark County.

Ronald McDonald Charities, Patterson Dental, Washington Oral Health Foundation and Free Clinic of Southwest Washington were all major contributors. What a great event and tremendous support of our community!

A big thank you to all of the dentists that helped out! Way to get involved!
