Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise Partners with Neighborhood Clinics for Free Dental Clinic

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise has donated funding to the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics Eastside Family Dental Clinic to hold a free dental clinic this Friday.

A total of 50 low-income patients with significant dental needs will be served — 25 of the patients are children identified by Direct Relief International from five local elementary schools, nine are residents of Garden Court and the balance are patients at Eastside Dental Clinic.

Patients were chosen based on their dental needs and lack of financial resources to pay for their dental treatment. Patients were all pre-screened and identified as needing treatment for tooth extractions, fillings, root canal treatments, periodontal treatment and interventions for dental decay and disease.

In addition to the monetary funds, Rotarians will assist by providing dental hygiene education to patients during the clinic. Patients will receive oral hygiene training and an oral hygiene kit (toothbrush, floss, toothpaste).

The dental director of the Neighborhood Clinics is Dr. Quynh Nguyen.

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise meets at 7 a.m. Wednesdays at the Santa Barbara Club, 1105 Chapala St.

— Jill Ireland Van Allen is the public relations chairwoman for the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
