The team at Orthodontic Centers of California volunteer on an annual event in which children using Medi Cal received no-cost orthodontic services.
The event, which is called “Orthodontics from the Heart”, was created to specifically provide orthodontic care for children using Medi Cal who come into Orthodontic Centers of California but do not meet required criteria and whose parents are unable to afford the costs of orthodontic treatment. The clinic has provided such services sporadically in the past, but according to clinical director Dr. Ara Agopian, DDS, MS, the clinic can provide anywhere from $75,000 to $100,000 worth of free services to children who would otherwise essentially fall between the cracks of care and financial burden.
Orthodontic Centers of California offer a wide range of orthodontic services, ranging from mouth guards to surgical solutions and more. The team at Orthodontic Centers of California works with patients of all ages, offering services such as braces and Invisalign to people in all stages of life. Providing top quality orthodontics services is the passion of the highly skilled orthodontists and staff at Orthodontic Centers of California.
The clinic offers two locations, serving patients who are able to visit clinics located in Canyon Country and Granada Hills. The highly rated practice has earned 5-star ratings from more than 150 patients. While offering premier orthodontics, the team at Orthodontic Centers of California aims to give back to the communities they so proudly serve.
According to Dr. Agopian, “I wake up every morning feeling blessed and excited about all the opportunities I will have to influence the lives of children and adults who are in need of my care and compassion, and arguably are less fortunate than I have been. However, over the past few years, I have been feeling an urge to further extend and give my services to a group of children who are in desperate need.”
“I can’t help but feel obligated to do my part to leave this world in a slightly better condition than when I arrived” said Dr. Agopian.
“Orthodontics from the Heart” will be held annually, at the any one of the Orthodontic Centers of California offices. Anyone interested in learning more about the event can contact the office directly with questions.
