Real People

Mobile Dental Clinic volunteer smiling while taking a spin on patient's mobile scooter after restoring his smile

“One of the many veterans I treated used his mobile scooter to travel from his motel to our location for services. We developed a treatment plan for several of his teeth to be restored, which included U/L partial dentures. He couldn’t stop crying and calling his friends and family when we told him we could see him at our dental practice to complete his procedures. It was our small token of gratitude and appreciation for those who served us. He was so happy he even let me take a spin on his scooter!”

Thank you, Dr. Ho for the remarkable care and generosity!

Patient and volunteers smiling after restoring her smile

This is Jan. She never wanted to smile after a filling on her front tooth started chipping and staining. The Mobile Dental Clinic provided her with free dental services and fixed her front tooth. As we showed Jan her new smile, tears came to her eyes. She was so grateful to have her smile back! This is why we love to serve, because of people like Jan!
