As part of our commitment to improving the lives of community members, we at Tahoe Oral Surgery and Implant Center choose to regularly give back. This September was a busy month for us with two incredible dental health events where we donated services to community members in need:
Dentistry from the Heart
Dentistry from the Heart 2017 started off much busier than the last few years of this event. But, our Tahoe Oral Surgery Team was prepared and ready to provide oral surgery treatment to our Dentistry from the Heart patients from throughout the Truckee/Tahoe region.
In total, we provided:
- 19 Panos (digital imaging)
- 29 Surgical Extractions
- 12 Routine Extractions
- 1 Implant Removal
For a total of $14,617.00 in treatment provided free of charge to our community members most in need of oral surgery care.
A big thank you goes out to Dr. Terry Rust for his help and Sierra Crest Dental for again hosting this event for our community and inviting us to be a part.
California Careforce is a group of medical professionals, community leaders and general volunteers who provide free medical, dental and vision care to those in need at mobile health clinics across California. This September, Dr. Rachel Appleblatt volunteered along with several other professionals to make the California CareForce event another success. This year’s clinic hours saw over 1500 patients and donated over $750,000 worth of services to Sacramento community members in need.
