Community Service

Our dedicated doctors and staff share their dental skills by volunteering their time and effort to a variety of causes. Our doctors are selected to serve on Oakland Children’s Hospital’s prestigious Craniofacial panel. This distinctive group provides comprehensive services to children with complex medical/dental needs. Our volunteer team makes mission trips to Guatemala, and Kona, Hawaii servicing areas where there is little or no dental care available. The group went to Guatemala and Costa Rica in July this year, capturing the experience in the photographs below.
