What is PADA? The Peruvian American Dental Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2006, by Peruvian dentists in the United States, whose purpose is to promote oral health among Latinos and other minority communities through education, prevention and treatment of dental illness. Since its inception, PADA has conducted annual dental missions to some of the most remote and underserved communities in Peru, providing many needy families with dental prevention, education, and treatment services.
Mobile Dental Clinic in Southern California
PADA is also in the process of establishing a Mobile Dental Clinic Program and opening a Community Dental Clinic in Southern California to provide quality dental services to low income families. PADA's Community Dental Clinic will include a mentoring component for youth to pursue careers in dentistry and its allied fields. The mobile clinic also attends large community events in the Orange County area, where screenings and preventative care are performed. Our mission? To improve the oral healthcare of underserved communities in Peru and the United States.
