The UCLA Oral Surgery Team at Care Harbor LA 2015
Every year since 2009, UCLA physicians, dentists and ophthalmologists provide mammograms, fill cavities, complete cancer screenings, screen patients for glaucoma and cataracts and perform other health exams at the annual Care Harbor free clinic in Los Angeles.
In 2017, more than 300 physicians and nurses, dentists from the UCLA School of Dentistry, ophthalmologists from the UCLA Stein Eye Institute and members of student volunteer groups signed up to provide services to 2,200 patients.

Care Harbor, a nonprofit organized in 2009, sponsors what it says are the largest free clinics in the country. These community-based events draw on local resources and volunteers, including hospitals, medical and dental schools, professional associations, community clinic networks and local healthcare agencies.
