DENTISTRY FOR ALL
Chew Chew is a proud affiliate and staunch supporter of the humanitarian efforts of Dentistry for All (DFA). DFA is a nonprofit, volunteer-run and supported organization dedicated to providing dental education, preventative, surgical and restorative care to the underprivileged and the underserved, both locally and internationally, particularly in developing countries.
Dental care in many of these countries is either non-accessible or simply unaffordable. To date, over 300 volunteers – among them many Chew Chew staff – have donated well over 100 workweeks treating patients, especially on DFA’s volunteer trips to remote parts of Central America. Without DFA, many of these people might go entire lifetimes without ever seeing a dentist.
Locally, DFA supports The Alex Bus and CUPS, and members regularly volunteer time at Smile Clinics throughout the city, making sure that dentistry is made available to as many as possible, regardless of circumstance.
Over the years, DFA has formed relationships and partnerships with regional development organizations, local NGOs, dental organizations, university programs, and countless dental equipment and supply companies to ensure that the quality of dental care is maintained at the highest possible level.
