Extending dental care during hard times

April 25, 2021

Your gift to support the USC Community Oral Health Programs on May 4, the annual USC Day of SCupport, will aid the Trojan Dental Family in continuing to provide compassionate care to vulnerable communities around Los Angeles. 

For more than fifty years, USC Community Oral Health Programs have brought dental care to some of society’s most vulnerable communities by bringing the USC Mobile Dental Clinic to familiar neighborhood venues and providing care at no charge to those we serve.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, USC Dentistry faculty and staff worked tirelessly to successfully modify Mobile Dental Clinic facilities to ensure a safer environment and have provided care to hundreds of people who may not otherwise have had access to any dental treatment during the pandemic. The relaunch in October 2020 blazed a trail to inform best practices for how other community dentistry sites could seek to safely reopen in the midst of the pandemic, and since then multiple USC Mobile Dental Clinics have assisted families around Los Angeles County, including at a new, frequent site at Hope Gardens where we treat women and their children living in transitional housing in Sylmar, CA.

On May 4th, we invite our USC community and friends to support the Trojan Dental Family and our commitment to providing high-quality treatment to underserved communities. Every donation to the school makes a major impact on our students and those we serve. 

Fight On!
