Growing up without access to high-quality dental care can be unhealthy and painful. To address this unmet need, Watts Powerhouse Food has partnered with the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC to provide free dental care to students living in Watts, California.
This year, more than 100 children have had cavities and other serious dental health issues addressed in USC's state-of-the-art mobile dental labs.
Watts Powerhouse Food helps community partners like USC provide much-needed services by leveraging our network of friends, educators, and local leaders to cover their costs. Thanks to our donors, a few thousand dollars for a security detail allowed USC to donate more than $120,000 of dental care to children in our community.
Our future plans include a permanent dental office in Watts.
