The Pacific Dental Services® Foundation programs enable dentists, clinicians and volunteers to improve oral healthcare through the Mobile Dental Clinic, international outreaches, special needs advocacy and training, and dental scholarships.
We are committed to leading the charge in providing access to dental care for the special needs community. We offer training and education to general and pediatric dentists as well as their dental teams. Just as importantly, we also offer family and caregiver training to help patients get proper oral care on a daily basis.
Dental Assistant Scholarships
Recognizing the importance of dental assistants to the future of dentistry, the Pacific Dental Services Foundation created the Dr. Carolyn Ghazal Dental Assisting Scholarship in honor of her abiding dedication to improving the lives of those in need. The scholarships will provide needbased aid to individuals seeking economic independence through dental assistant education, mentorship and on-the-job training.
Mobile Dental Clinic
The Pacific Dental Services Foundation Mobile Dental Clinic, along with clinician volunteers, serves community members in need in challenged urban areas and rural communities. The mobile dental clinic also participates in major community healthcare events with partners such as the Colorado Mission of Mercy, Salvation Army of Arizona, CARE Partnership, Dress for Success, and House of Refuge to provide donated dental care and spread oral health awareness.
International Service Trips
We are increasing our impact on the world around us by providing opportunities to serve locally and globally. We are also committed to enabling and equipping communities to better serve themselves through collaboration with local clinics in Fiji, Guatemala, and Ethiopia.
