Escondido Dentists Giving Back: Needed Dental Restorative Care

UEI Dental Day

We had an opportunity to partner with UEI to provide their students in the Registered Dental Assisting program with needed dental restorative care for their improved health. This will better prepare them for interviewing and hopefully… getting hired in the dental profession once they graduate and pass their board exams.

Five dentists (Dr Charlie Mastrovich, Dr Larry Buss, Dr Gary Paluso, Dr Doug Christianson and Dr Joe Nguyen) volunteered their time at our office. Our team (Debra, Sally and Sheila) volunteered their time supervising the assisting students as they took turns assisting the dentists during each others’ treatment.

For many of these students, this was much needed care that they had not been able to receive up to this point, and for some the need extended back to their childhood. It was one of those life changing days for all who shared in it, as it was difficult to say who felt it more deeply: those who received or those who gave treatment. Those volunteering felt very moved by the difference that was made in each student’s life and appearance.
