CDA Cares Modesto is Coming Soon!


CDA Cares, a donated dental clinic sponsored by the California Dental Association’s Foundation, is returning to Modesto where it started six years ago. We are expecting to provide dental services at no charge to an average of 1,950 of those needing relief from the pain and infection of untreated dental disease.  Patient pre-registration will start Thursday afternoon, October 25 on a first-come, first-served basis to patients standing in line. Actual patient treatment will happen October 26-27.


A clinic this size needs many volunteers. We are in need of dental staff and non-dental community members to make this event a success. Volunteers must be 18 and over. If you want to help be the reason somebody smiles, register here.  You can also display this flyer with volunteer information. For more information, go to  We look forward to serving with you!
