Santa Ana Families are Smiling!

- posted by Lindsey Johanson at Friday, September 28, 2012

It's a busy (and rewarding) season for the Dental Care for Children Family! With the success of our Santa Ana dental clinic this past weekend and two more Mexico clinics on the horizon this October, you're helping us help more children than ever before!

On September 22nd, sixty-one volunteers, including local dentists, USC students and assistants, banded together to help low-income families in our very own backyard of Santa Ana, California.

Dental Care for Children partnered with the Western Service Workers Association to provide free dental care for families of those either laid off from their job or earning wages below poverty level. DCFC board member, Dr. David Levitt, lead the team in assembling a 13 chair mobile dental clinic a in nearby Santa Ana church.

It was a day of record-setting heat, rigorous dental work and a lot of gracious families. We're so thrilled to have treated 66 patients & donated almost $50,000 worth of dental treatment to these families who otherwise couldn't have afforded care. 

Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this miracle possible! 

Get To Know Dr. Tozzer

Dr. Charles “Chuck” Tozzer began Dental Care for Children with a simple concept. Provide free dental services for children that didn't have access to care. From a single clinic at an orphanage in Maneadero, Mexico, the organization now provides eight clinics a year in Mexico, the United States and Haiti.
