We are seniors at Cardinal Newman High School.
With the help of our mentor, Dr. Ezbon Jen, of the Santa Rosa Junior College and Dr. Leslie Jue we organized a free dental clinic for Sonoma County’s uninsured children between the ages of 4 and 17. The clinic was held Sunday, January 12, 2014 in the Race Science Building at the Santa Rosa Junior College.
We organized twenty-seven dental volunteers including seven dentists and six dental hygenists and we provided over $11,000 of free dental care to our patients. This was the culmination of our Community Based Service Learning mission, Project Healthy Child, which had been a year and a half in planning.
We greatly appreciate our dental volunteers, the Santa Rosa Junior College, and Dr. Ezbon Jen for helping in this wonderful endeavor. A big ‘THANK YOU’ to the Henry Shein Cares Foundation for their generous donation of health kits which we distributed to the children.
Thank you for your support!
