Dentist to Educate Patients About Sedation Dentistry for Free
Through a series of free educational videos and online information, Dr. Williamson is taking a lead role in educating the public about the benefits of sedation dental care.
Dental school, company partner to help Californians in need
LOS ANGELES, California–The end of adult Denti-Cal services earlier this year left many disadvantaged Californians unable to find affordable dental care.
The USC Mobile Dental Clinic, started in 1968, travels throughout southern and central California, providing more than $1 million in free dental care for thousands of patients each year.
USC’s five-vehicle fleet has the capacity to provide many types of oral health services from checkups and cleanings to extractions, restorations, and other major procedures.
Code issues close free dental clinic
A clinic that has provided free dental care to generations of Jackson County children plans to reopen early next year after being displaced by fire code violations at Rogue Valley Medical Center.
Officials with the Children’s Dental Clinic of Jackson County say the move has disrupted services, but will be a benefit in the long run, as RVMC will continue to provide the space free of charge and soon in an improved office.
Medical clinic to help those without insurance opening in Lebanon County
A free medical/dental clinic serving Lebanon County residents without insurance opens tomorrow, staffed by a roster of 80 volunteer doctors, dentists and clerical staff. The Volunteers in Medicine clinic at 711 S. Eighth St. targets the working poor, but anyone meeting income limits can be served, said Kathi Caber, clinic director.
She estimates as many as 10,000 county residents now have little or no access to health care.
