San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2013
Sunnyvale dentist office of Ratna Indah DMD joined the CDA Cares Event that was held for the first time in San Jose. Dr. Indah’s practice not only sees patients for general dentistry but is highly respected for her expertise on TMJ and safe amalgam removal in which she is able to offer, yet another facet to dental services. She is a graduate of Tufts University in Boston and an active member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Endodontists, and F.A.C.E. and Titanium Dental Implant Center. She is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT).
This year’s CDA Cares event held on May 17 & 18 had a great turn out, helping 2,202 patients with needed dental care services. Dentists, dental professionals, and community volunteers showed up to provide $1.6 million dollars in charitable free dental services during the two-day event. To read more:
Many came very early from San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, and many other areas waiting in line for these services in hopes of getting help with cavities, tooth pain, and if lucky, dentures. Millions of Californians have no dental insurance, that means there are currently over 3 million adults uninsured in California and with the current state of the economy, there is little hope of Legislature adding funds to the budget to cover it in the near future.
Dr. Ratna Indah and her Sunnyvale dental staff saw firsthand the benefits of this event, seeing the joy on the faces of those who received these services, was thanks enough. This was the first year that the CDA Cares event was held in San Jose. Dr. Indah stated that she hopes this event will be continued every year. There are just so many people that need dental care and cannot afford to get it.
