Much going on around the Free Clinic recently. In September we received a donation of panaflex x-ray machine for our Dental Clinic. This devise allows the dentist to x-ray all the teeth at once to better determine there relationship to one another. This is especially helpful when extrcting wisdom teeth. Also in September the Clinic received a $15,000 grant from Alcoa Fastening Systems. Alcoa is very committed to supporting the charities in their community.
On Friday October 2nd the Clinic hosted the United Blood Services Bloodmobile http://www.unitedbloodservices.org/ The first Friday of everymonth the Free Clinic Sponsors a blood drive. Supplies of blood have run low due to the demand following the recent Metrolink train disaster.
And finally, today we hosted a luncheon at Marie Callenders for our volunteer dentists. Eight were able to attend and all had a great time.
