Outreach Events

Improving the oral health of individuals in California is central to the UCLA School of Dentistry’s mission. Dating back to 1998, we have been providing free dental care and treatment at community health fairs to hundreds of adults and children living in Los Angeles and neighboring counties.

By participating in health fairs and community outreach events, the School of Dentistry is providing an extremely valuable service to the community. The time that our students and faculty spend and the expertise they lend to providing care and promoting the importance of good oral health are among our most valuable contributions to society.

In addition to providing free dental services, students also have the opportunity to interact with people of all ages and backgrounds, and experience first-hand the various needs and challenges associated with individual groups in the community.

Public service is a value we strive to uphold and instill in everyone who receives training at the School of Dentistry.
