MEND operates a Medical, a Vision and a Dental Clinic, founded and developed by volunteer healthcare professionals. The clinics assist poor, uninsured, and medically under-served families who, otherwise, would not have access to these services.
Primary dental services provided include cleanings, fillings, extractions, sealants and some endodontic procedures. Oral Surgery is also provided on site, and periodontal visits are available as needed. Fluoride treatments for children are provided twice yearly. A strong Oral Hygiene Education program is also in place to ensure patient awareness of oral hygiene. Patients are provided with free toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, appropriate educational literature, and any necessary medications. In collaboration with the San Fernando Valley Dental Society, MEND Dental Clinic also provides free dental screenings and fluoride treatment to over 500 children during the annual Give Kids a Smile event in February.
The Medical Clinic provides basic ambulatory, hypertension, diabetic, vision, women's, acupuncture and chiropractic care to adults and children. Both Medical and Dental Clinics also provide education to the patients. When more specialized services are needed, the patients are given referrals to appropriate facilities nearby.
The Vision Clinic is a collaboration between MEND, the Lions Club and the San Fernando Valley Optometric Society. Vision screenings and eye glasses are provided at no charge to patients. When appropriate, referrals are made for cataract surgery at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, and this procedure for MEND clients is underwritten by the Auer Family Foundation.
Numerous doctors, optometrists, dentists, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists donate several hours of their time and skills each month. The clinics are in the process of increasing access to care and need doctors, dentists, dental assistants, optometrists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and more to expand the clinic hours of operation.
