Earlier this week, the California Dental Association Foundation announced a pledge to support the Ravenswood Family Health Center in East Paolo Alto, California through its grant program. With the funding, the center will open a new dental care facility in the heart of the city and will be able to hire a full-time dentist, according to the Mercury News.
In 2009, a total of 74 organizations applied for grants from the foundation. Of that group, five California-based, community-conscious facilities were awarded funding by the grant selection committee and the board of directors.
"It's always difficult to make choices when there are so many worthy organizations doing good work on behalf of dental patients in need," said the foundation's chair, Lindsey Robinson.
"But the projects we selected stood out and will unquestionably meet our goal of making a significant contribution to California's underserved populations," he added.
Officials with the clinic have also announced that they will be offering one "community dental day" each week where students and volunteer dentists will provide dental care to the needy.
