Welcome to the Dental Tent outreach guide. Before you begin reading about this outreach, we’d like to make sure you know what you need to about San Francisco’s inner city by visiting the Backstory Page.
What is it?
The Dental team is so important to bring healing physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental healing to the people of the community through dental care. They will have the opportunity to hear someone's story, pray for them, share Jesus' love with them.
The Tenderloin community is host to many residents and homeless who do not have convenient access, or often times no access, to dental care. Along with that, many of the people in the community struggle with multiple acute and chronic health problems rooted in trauma, drug use, and/or isolation. By providing dental screenings, care, and education, we hope to help them find full healing in Jesus.
As a part of the Dental team, you bring a level of expertise to work closely with individuals with a lot of trauma and potentially chronic issues. Team members will utilize provided Holistic Prescriptions to help patients reconnect with the clinic and services at City Impact. Please prescribe at least one service to every patient.
By providing a specific level of expertise and care, we hope to bring healing to the people in the inner city. You will be able to provide care for many people who have delayed treatment or attention to their health for meany years. We have the chance to share about how much someone is loved and known in Christ.
