Wanted: Dentists with a Talent for Smiles
Submitted By HOPE
Are you a dentist or hygienist interested in volunteering your skills to help people in need?
We are looking for local dental professionals who can dedicate a few hours each month to providing basic services for the homeless individuals who visit the HOPE Project Mobile Health Clinic. These participants have limited access to basic dental care, and many suffer from tooth and mouth pain, or have difficulty chewing because of missing teeth. Basic services, including cleanings/deep cleanings, fillings, and crowns, would be very much appreciated.
Dental volunteers would be following the sterling example of Dr. Gayatri Sakhrani who began serving HOPE participants almost three years ago. We are grateful to Dr. Sakhrani for all she does, and would love to have additional volunteers join her in this effort to help all HOPE participants have healthy smiles.
The HOPE Project team will be happy to work with volunteers to coordinate visits, and to support participants in their follow-up care.
To learn more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (510) 657-7409.
