MAY & JUNE ~AMAUS DENTAL SERVICES
Amaus Dental Services is an outreach ministry of The Immaculate Conception Cathedral, founded in August 2014. Its mission is to provide basic dental care to homeless, unemployed and uninsured patients of CNY.
The scope of service includes examinations, x-rays, hygiene, fillings and routine extractions. All of their staff are VOLUNTEERS that include dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants & administrative personnel. The care is provided free of charge to the patients. In 2017 they expanded from a single room to a three room suite with modern equipment, digital x-rays, electronic dental records and a sterilization center. This expansion was accomplished by raising over $200,000 in funds and dental equipment from foundations, dentists, dental supply companies, and individuals.
Since August of 2014 over $250,000 of free care has been provided with $150,000 of that being delivered since our expansion one year ago.
SOME OF THEIR CHALLENGES that face this great organization is sustaining funding of $15,000 per year and procuring volunteers, which include:
• Dental Assistants (with experience or willing to learn)
• Dental Professionals
• Administrative volunteers for making appointments, answer phone calls and working with records. Time commitment is very flexible
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP??
CONTRIBUTE through the Living Your Faith envelope during the months of May and June. Any contribution during these two months would help them toward their $15,000 annual need.
