Help Dentists on Wheels Serve Those in Need, Dentists on Wheels Believes Everyone Deserves Dental Care!
Dentists on Wheels was incepted to address the lack of restorative and preventative dental care available for the uninsured and underserved, within and around Contra Costa County, CA. Volunteers including dentists and dental assistants generously donate their time to help provide free, high-quality restorative and preventative dental care to the underserved communities.
To best service the needs of our target population, DoW originally planned to have a mobile dental unit to best reach this population. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, funding for purchasing large capital equipment such as a dental RV became less feasible. Our organization felt the immediate need to help as the dental coverage by DentiCal in California is shrinking and less individuals are being qualified.
DoW has partnered with St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) of Contra Costa County, a Catholic-based organization to establish our first brick-and-mortar location! DOW has been able to provide full examinations, cleanings, and x-rays to patients within and around the Contra Costa area. With your support, DOW will be able to expand our capacity and reach to include more restorative treatments such as fillings, crowns, root canals, bridges, extractions, dentures, and other procedures at no cost to the patient.
With your help, we hope to increase access to quality oral healthcare and education to the East Bay Area community and reach our goal of improving the oral and systemic health of over 2,000 patients yearly.
Thank you greatly for your support!
