Volunteers Provide Dental Care to Our Workers

Twelve Millionair Club Charity participants received free dental care on Tuesday, Oct. 30, when a group of eight volunteer dental hygienists from Seattle Central Community College participated in our first free dental service day.

The Millionair Club Charity rented a mobile medical van from Medical Teams International, a faith-based global health organization. Dr. Meghan Crawford and her seven dental hygienist students served our participants by providing basic oral cleanings, administering x-rays and performing minor dental surgery. The team also referred three of our participants to additional free dental work.

All participants received a hygiene kit containing shampoo, conditioner, a toothbrush, toothpaste, a washcloth and razors. These items were donated to us by our generous community partners.

“I feel like I’m giving back to the community,” says Yoshi, a dental hygienist student at Seattle Central Community College. We’re here to give [these participants] emotional support in addition to medical help.”

Thank you to Dr. Crawford, her students, Seattle Central Community College, Medical Teams International and our community partners for making our first free dental care event a success!
