The Campaign for Exceptional Smiles

Speaker Series 2022

Welcome to the Campaign for Exceptional Smiles, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Dentistry’s initiative to improve the oral health of people with Developmental Disabilities in the San Francisco Bay Area through dental workforce development, increased availability of dental services in dental offices and within community settings, and reduction in the dependence of people with Developmental Disabilities on sedation and/or general anesthesia for dental care. 

Our mission is to educate and empower the dental community (predoctoral dental students, postgraduate residents, dentists, dental hygienists, & RDHAPs) by conducting sessions led by multidisciplinary professionals, experts, and self-advocates to promote a patient-centered approach and enhance optimal oral health care for the Developmental Disabilities community.
