Care in California: More than 2,000 people in April received over $1.5 million in dental services during the California Dental Association Foundation's two-day volunteer clinic, CDA Cares, in Anaheim. Dentists and dental professionals provided more than 11,858 procedures, including fillings, extractions, cleanings and oral health education. Volunteer technicians in the clinic's dental lab area also worked to provide 181 complete and partial dentures and repairs. Dr. Natasha Lee, California Dental Association president, said in a news release that the large turnout of patients speaks to the need for "improvements" to the state's Medi-Cal dental program.
