The November 10 event offered veterans and active military members free dental check-ups, hearing screenings, COVID-19 vaccine boosters, health gift goody bags, and refreshments. Attendees also had opportunities to meet and socialize with students and faculty from the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry and School of Health Sciences.

Both schools operate clinics that are open to the public at the San Francisco campus of the University of the Pacific.

The Dugoni School of Dentistry regularly participates in community outreach activities that serve people across the Bay Area. Recent events have included the Chinatown Community Health Fair and outreach to children and families in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.

The school’s volunteers have also resumed international global outreach, including a recent trip to Jamaica in October to provide oral health care to children and adults.
