Local Oral Surgeon to Volunteer in Medical Triage at CDA Cares Pomona
Pomona, CA (November 18, 2014) – Nearly a quarter of adults between the ages of 20-64 have untreated tooth decay or cavities. Considering the serious impact that oral health has on overall well-being, it is critical for people to understand the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene. Christopher S. Daniel, DDS, MD, FACS, consistently conveys this message to all of his patients at Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery, and will further support the ability for patients to get the help they need at this year’s CDA Cares Clinic in Pomona, CA.
Dr. Daniel will volunteer in the medical triage area at the second CDA Cares Clinic to be held in Southern California, which will take place November 21-22 at the Pomona Fairplex. He will provide patients with a thorough examination to help determine whether their state of health is optimal enough to undergo oral surgery procedures.
“It is necessary for people to undergo a thorough history and physical with medical treatment, and optimization where needed,” said Dr. Daniel.
Each year, the CDA Foundation hosts CDA Cares Clinics in various locations across the country to provide care to approximately 2,000 patients at no cost. Even further, CDA Cares Clinics support continued health and wellness by educating the public, media and policymakers about the significance of good oral health, and the necessity to determine long-term solutions for patients.
Dr. Daniel will not only provide care to those who are healthy enough to undergo surgery, but he will also assist in preventing those who are not fit to undergo surgery from getting treatment until they get their medical conditions under control. Conditions that may be harmful to routine dental and oral surgery patients include uncontrolled high blood pressure, uncontrolled diabetes and others.
“I often see patients who need oral surgery, but they are simply ineligible to undergo any procedure safely before they get control of their other existing medical conditions. The risk for complications during and after dental procedures and/or surgery are just too high,” said Dr. Daniel. “This goes to show just how important it is to take care of every aspect of your health – especially your mouth.”
The CDA Foundation held their first Clinic in 2012, and have since provided $7.5 million in care to more than 10,000 patients. The CDA Cares Clinic in Pomona this week will provide patients with teeth cleanings, fillings, extractions, education, and resources for continued care.
