Oregon offices will remain open to support patients and alleviate burden on Emergency Departments.

Inglewood, CA. (9/16/2020)InterDent announces that most Oregon offices will remain open to maintain access to preventive services for Oregon communities. Capitol Dental Care will continue to partner with Oregon county organizations to provide support for communities affected by the recent wildfires and COVID-19 crisis. 

In the past month, Dr. Chaudhry, President and Dental Director for Capitol Dental Care, mobilized within affected Oregon communities to provide free toothbrush and denture kits, oral health education and nutritional counseling, telehealth consults, teledentistry, and emergency dental treatment, regardless of insurance type.

“Our hearts go out to all those what have suffered from the devastating fires. We hope that the oral health kits and expanded oral health services we provide will be of some comfort to Oregonians who have been displaced and are honored to be able to provide assistance.” — Dr. Chaudhry

Dr. Chaudhry’s outreach efforts reflect Capitol Dental Care’s tradition of reducing barriers to care by providing dental services in non-traditional venues, including schools, medical offices, and community settings.

Capitol Dental Care remains committed to providing support to members through its affiliated practices under the brands Gentle Dental®, SmileKeepers, and Blue Oak® Dental.
