Helping veterans: Latoya Leeks, center, visits the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry which offered Nov. 4 free dental checkups for military veterans at dental clinics in San Francisco and Union City. Ms. Leeks speaks with, from left, Dr. Mark T. Booth, and student volunteers Andrew Choi and Nina Hernando during her checkup. During the event, dentists and dental students also checked veterans’ blood pressure, screened for oral cancer and provided health gift bags, which included toothbrushes and other dental items. Veterans also learned about details of ongoing, reduced-fee services program available to them. Photo by Jon Draper, University of the Pacific
