Our Team

The Senior Dental Center serves a diverse patient population, with 95% living at or below the federal poverty level. To be inclusive in addressing individual patients’ needs, we are a culturally, linguistically and competent team with training in geriatrics, special needs, and advanced prosthodontics–to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and break silos.
