SS Rotary Supports Community Dental Access Centre
Jul 13, 2022
Our new President Calvin Reich greets retired long-time SS Rotary member & Past President Dr Victor Lepp, who joined our meeting & thanked us for our recent donation to the Community Dental Access Centre, which paid for new office furniture. Dr Lepp, a retired orthodontist, was a founding Director of the Dental Centre, which is close to its 10th anniversary, & supplies low-cost dental care to those who otherwise can’t afford it. There’s very high demand for their services – it’s estimated that up to 40% of Canadian adults never see a dentist, because of the prohibitive costs. Vic says the Dental Access Centre had 3,000 visits last year, & receives support from a number of local donors.
