Ventura County DENTISTS offer Dental Services with Food Drive to Aid Local
Dr. Radfar and Dr. Haddad are looking to assist the people in their communities who have lost their dental coverage. For $39 patients will receive oral examinations, x-rays and dental cleanings, with all proceeds going to the local food pantry.
Dr. Radfar and Dr. Haddad are looking to assist the people in their communities who have lost their dental coverage due to job loss by offering dental services at a fraction of their normal rate. For $39 patients will receive oral examinations, x-rays and dental cleanings, with all proceeds going to the local food pantry.
Both doctors were inspired to sponsor this food drive event in their Thousand Oaks and Oxnard offices to give back and help the less fortunate in their communities after reading a report in the New York Times about how an increasing number of Americans are going hungry.
Dr. Radfar notes that due to the high unemployment rate in California, many people in their community who lost their job have also lost their dental coverage and are, therefore, going without preventative dental care, which puts them in danger of tooth decay and gum diseases that may cause diabetes, liver and heart problems.
“We want to do our part to ensure that our fellow Americans stay healthy and to help those who are going hungry by sponsoring this food drive for the residents of our community,” adds Dr. Haddad. She elaborates further by saying $39 will improve a person’s dental health and feed 2 families for a week at the same time.
The community discount spearheaded by Drs. Radfar and Haddad to benefit people in need of health care as well as the local food bank will begin on August 20th and will remain in effect until September 28th, 2012.

“In a troubled economy that affects many Americans, the spirit of giving to others is needed more than ever. The more people who know about this effort, the more needy families can receive aid,” Dr. Radfar concludes.
