The Sonrisas Community Dental Center's mission is to improve the oral health of all people, including those with special access needs who face barriers to care.

The Sonrisas Center opened its doors in 2001 to provide access to affordable dental care for low-income San Mateo Coastside residents. Our staff provides dental services at our Centers, within our mobile delivery units that regularly visit community organizations such as Puente, and using partnering hospital operating-rooms.

Without help from more dental volunteers and donors, we’re unable to provide treatment to all those who need it. Become part of Sonrisas as a volunteer or a donor. You'll be rewarded with the most grateful smiles you can imagine.

Be sure to listen to our very own Clyde Hinshelwood talk about the amazing work being done at the Sonrisas Center with local radio station KHMB!
