COMMUNITY SERVICE, FREE DENTISTRY FOR VETERANS
Helping out the community, improving people’s dental health is very important to Drs Ty and Susan Caldwell. They volunteer their time to serve the community as often as they can; currently partnering with Dentistry for Humanity. Dentistry for Humanity is a grass roots organization created by Dr. Leslie Strommer DDS and Peggy Sprague RDH. They are dedicated to inspiring dental teams to improve access to dental care to those in need in our community.
The current project to help improve access to dental care within our community to raise funds to build a much needed dental clinic at the Veteran’s Village in San Diego. When our Veterans come home, they no longer have access to dental care and our goal is to help in funding the build-out of this clinic and provide funds on an ongoing basis to sustain it’s daily operations. This dental clinic is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2015.
To date, the Caldwells (along with several other dentists) have raised $58,000 to help fund the dental clinic at VVSD. They are well on our way to open the dental clinic for our veterans.
