Ninth Annual Free Dentistry Event in Port Hueneme/Oxnard
For the first time this year the Oxnard office of California Dental Group will be providing free emergency dental care as part of their growing annual effort to serve those who don’t have the money to go to the dentist.
Realizing that many people are struggling in the current economy, California Dental Group wants to give people, who couldn’t otherwise afford it, an opportunity to take care of dental problems before they become more serious, and more costly.
Free dental services, including fillings, emergency root canals, extractions, toothache treatments, and cleaning of infected gums, will be provided, at NO COST, to as many people as can be seen beginning at 8am and ending at 3pm, on a first come, first serve basis. One emergency treatment per patient.
California Dental Group sees hundreds of patients a month. Yet, according to Dr. Kamran Sahabi, owner of California Dental Group, “We see an amazing number of people who need treatment and can’t afford it. We come across this every day. So I decided that we needed to address this serious health issue.” Each of California Dental Group’s seven locations now devotes at least one day per year to providing free emergency dental care to the community.
Dr. Sahabi considers the cost of the giveaway in staff time and supplies as “not really important.”
“What is important is that people understand the two main problems in dental care — tooth decay and gum disease — and that they are both preventable with good hygiene and regular visits to the dentist.”
California Dental Group’s Port Hueneme/Oxnard clinic is located at 305 E. Port Hueneme Rd., Port Hueneme, CA 93041, between Ventura Rd. and Market St. The Free Emergency Dental Care Day Clinic will be held on Friday, February 7, 2014, from 8am – 3pm.
