We provided a day of free dentistry for abused women and children living in a local shelter. We feel fortunate to be able to use our skills, experience, and facility to help these families with much needed dental work.

We participated in the UCLA School of Dentistry's inaugural Walk for Oral Cancer Awareness. The event was held at the UCLA campus with nearly 300 participants, raising over $17,000. The proceeds will be used to support student activities ranging from oral cancer research to future awareness and cancer screening events.

On Friday, October 22, 2010 our office volunteered at Maria Shriver's Modern House Call for women event. The Women's Conference attracts more than 35,000 women to its annual event in which participants from diverse backgrounds are "educated, inspired and empowered" to create change in their local and global communities. Each year at the Conference, they seek to address pressing women's issues ranging from Alzheimer's disease and domestic violence to financial planning and access to a college education.
This year the Women's Conference sponsored a groundbreaking event for poor and low-income women of Long Beach and nearby areas- "The Modern House Call for Women." The event was a comprehensive health, wellness, and financial services clinic available at no charge to uninsured, underinsured, and unemployed women.
The event was amazing and we feel very fortunate to have been able to participate and help women in need.

In March we partnered with Habitat For Humanity and opened our office on a Saturday to provide free dental services to underserved families, who otherwise would not be able to afford regular dental treatment.
It was a long, but fulfilling day and it could not have been accomplished without the efforts of all the volunteers.
