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.
DENTAL ACTION DAY in Olympia
Each year Dentists from Clark County attend Dental Action Day at the State Capital in Olympia. We speak with our State Legislators regarding the future of Dentistry. We advocate to maintain the quality and safety of dental care for our patients. Accessibility to dental care is our goal.

Clark County Skills Center
The Community Dental Clinic at the Clark County Skills Center provides the dental assisting students with quality, hands-on training. Our uninsured or marginalized citizens have a viable option for dental care. Many CCDS dentists and staff have freely lent their time and expertise by volunteering in the clinic.
