Help Deliver Home Care/Oral Hygiene Kits to Thousands of Vulnerable Seniors!

Due to COVID-19 health crisis, the Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center has temporarily closed our in-person clinical services, but we continue to provide oral health and social support to our senior community, many of whom are isolated, scared and confused.

We have implemented new ways to serve our seniors to provide them as much relief as possible, during this uncertain time.

  • Teledentistry (Telehealth) Services: Our seniors are being supported from the safety of their homes and able to get their oral health needs met with our newly implemented Teledentistry protocols to help them if they are in pain; to provide screenings, answer questions and provide referrals for dental, medical, social and mental health services.
  • Patient Outreach: We are checking in on our patients by phone more frequently to make sure they are feeling safe, aren’t feeling anxious or lonely and that they are getting their health and social needs met.
  • Home Care/Oral Hygiene Kits: We are delivering care kits to seniors during their meal deliveries, in partnership with Serving Seniors. These care kits will include oral hygiene items, along with hand sanitizer and other essential home care items to help control development of infection in their mouths and their environment.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!
For as little as $5.00, you can provide a Home Care/Oral Hygiene kit to a senior in need and right now, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar! The Gary and Mary West Foundation will generously match donations up to total of $10,000.

Click the Donate button above, or for your convenience, you can send a check to: Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center – please write: For COVID-19 Home Care Kits on your check. Please send to: Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center, 1525 Fourth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.

We truly appreciate your support in helping us continue to care for our vulnerable seniors.

Thank you and Stay Safe!

The Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Team
