For the seventh year in a row, more than 200 residents of
Buffalo's Lower West Side neighborhood will receive dental care
from UB School of Dental Medicine faculty and dental-student
volunteers over the course of two days at the Judge Joseph S.
Mattina Community Health Center, 300 Niagara St. in Buffalo. UB
faculty and students will attend to patients from 9 a.m. until 4
p.m. today and tomorrow (Nov. 15 and 16).
In gratitude for UB's service, Judge Mattina will be having
lunch with the volunteers at noon today.
Heidi Crow, UB associate professor and associate dean, oral
diagnostics, and Yoly M. Gonzalez-Stucker, UB assistant professor
in oral diagnostics, will be accompanied by their students to
provide examinations, cleaning and follow-up care, if necessary, at
the UB School of Dental Medicine on the South Campus.
"We provide the examinations and cancer screenings for the
patients that we will see at the community center, and if they need
care that cannot be provided onsite, we will give them appointment
to come see us at the UB Dental Clinic," said Gonzalez-Stucker.
The event is sponsored by the Hispanic Dental Association and
