SIMI VALLEY, CA – The Free Clinic of Simi Valley and the Ventura County Dental Hygienists’ Association will hold their annual “Make A Difference Day” Dental Clinic for Children, this Saturday, March 8, 2014 at the Free Clinic of Simi Valley’s Dental facility in Simi Valley.
Olga Lafflitto, a staff member of the Free Clinic of Simi Valley, and one of the organizers of the event, is very excited about the event. She bubbles with enthusiasm as she describes the event, the cute kids, and the dental supplies that she and the other members of the Hygienists’ Association have purchased, which will be used for the event, and for the Free Clinic’s regular dental operations. “We originally had a cut-off of 80 children, but our registration has swelled to 95 for Saturday,” said Lafflitto. Children will receive a “goody bag” with toothpaste, a kid’s toothbrush and educational material. The services at the event are free of charge, but a donation of $25, which benefits the Free Clinic are appreciated.
“We appreciate our association with the Ventura County Dental Hygienists’ Association and applaud their generosity is providing these vital services to Simi Valley’s youngest,” said Fred Bauermeister, Executive Director of the Free Clinic of Simi Valley.
