USC Mobile School of Dentistry Joins Remote Area Medical at the Forum in Los Angeles

Hats off to USC Mobile Dental Clinic in joining the cause. Just yesterday I had posted on the blog that dentists were needed and there people responding. Medical Assistants and technicians are still needed too. BD
With the help of USC and other local partners, Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit volunteer group dedicated to providing free care in remote or low-access areas throughout the Americas, will provide free medical, dental and vision exams and treatment for thousands by the end of the weeklong event. The Los Angeles operation is the group’s first venture into a major metropolitan area, said founder Stan Brock.
Mobile Clinic director Marjorie Domingo said that with a full volunteer staff manning the five USC mobile dental units, the clinic should be able to treat nearly 40 cases per day. Combined with services from other dental charities and volunteers at the Forum, USC’s efforts will ensure that hundreds of people receive the oral health care they need by the end of the weeklong operation.
