One of Southern California’s largest dental service companies demonstrated its commitment to the Hispanic community by providing 300 free oral health screenings for children at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) National Latino Family Expo® in Los Angeles that took place on July 19-21, 2014. Dentists were onsite to provide complimentary screenings and fluoride treatments in order to help families understand the importance of preventive dental care.
“We are committed to improving the oral health of every member of the diverse communities we serve,” said Louis J. Amendola, D.D.S., Western Dental’s chief dental director. “The NCLR Expo was a great opportunity for us to reach families in need of essential dental services.”
Western Dental’s sponsorship and participation is part of the company’s commitment to oral health care for the Latino population it serves on a daily basis. More than 180 dental clinics in the Western Dental family are located in predominantly Latino communities throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, together with affiliated offices in Texas.
All of Western Dental’s services are backed by a unique Quality Assurance Management System (QAMS) that electronically monitors all patient visits, treatments, dental staff and clinical performance to enable high-quality dental care. In addition, Western Dental offers extended and weekend dental office hours, as well as flexible no-interest payment plans making high quality, oral health care more accessible to everyone in the areas it serves.
