Fresh Start offers free dental clinics

CARLSBAD — Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, a Carlsbad nonprofit, will kick off its 2015 Dental Clinics during National Children’s Dental Health Month in February to provide free-of-cost restorative and orthodontic dental procedures and preventative dental education to disadvantaged infants, children, and teens. Fresh Start treats uninsured, underinsured and low-income children with craniofacial deformities, dentofacial abnormalities and other dental deficiencies.

Fresh Start will host its 2015 Dental Clinics in North County beginning Feb. 6 to provide cleanings, exams and fillings, wisdom teeth removal, implants and crowns, and more. For information on how to apply for the Fresh Start 2015 Dental Clinics, contact Lupita Morales at (760) 448-2025 or, or Maribel Contreras at (760) 448-2023 or

“Our team of volunteer dentists and orthodontists transform the lives of disadvantaged children through the gift of healthcare services,” said Fresh Start Patient Services Manager Lupita Morales. “During Dental Health Month in February, our goal is to remind local patients of Fresh Start’s no-cost services for children with physical deformities.”

In conjunction with its 2015 Dental Clinics, Fresh Start will be participating in America’s Tooth Fairy Smile Drive, a national campaign that collects oral care for vulnerable children in the community. Oral care items, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss can be donated and dropped off to the Fresh Start office at 2011 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad.
