The Nov. 10 event offered veterans and active military members free dental checkups, 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 Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy. Both schools operate clinics that are open to the public at University of the Pacific’s San Francisco Campus. Learn more about the dental clinic here.

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.
