The Community Dental Clinic initiative offers accessible weekend dental services at central locations for individuals like Uncle John who face challenges in regular dental care due to work commitments. These clinics, designed to accommodate off-peak times, provide essential services, including checkups and preventive treatments. Leveraging existing CHAS subsidies, the initiative ensures affordability for working individuals. Volunteers on-site address concerns, offering information on new treatments and reassuring individuals about the quality of care. The intervention aims to break down barriers, making dental care convenient, affordable, and tailored to the community's needs.
