Leading San Diego Dentist Joins TeamSmile in Caring for Kids’ Teeth
Dental health is vital not just for adults but also for kids. Unfortunately, many children do not get the dental care they need due to financial limitations. Knowing this, Dr. Justene Doan, a leading dentist in San Diego, teamed up with the non-profit TeamSmile and the San Diego Chargers to give free dental treatments to over 300 youths at the Qualcomm Stadium last October 14. TeamSmile is one of the nation’s leading advocacy groups that partners with athletic organizations and local dental practitioners to offer free dental services to the area’s underserved youth. During this activity, the kids were given the same triage, treatments, x-rays, preventive care, and education they could receive from visiting traditional dental offices.
