About Pacific Dental Services (PDS) Foundation
Pacific Dental Services Foundation’s mission to serve communities locally, nationally and internationally through improved oral healthcare is carried out in part through our Mobile Dental Clinic’s efforts.

Partnerships with local community organizations have allowed the PDS Foundation the opportunity to spread oral health awareness while providing care and access to those without.
