Pacific Oral Health Society Launches Dental Centre Construction

Partnering with UBC Faculty of Dentistry

SURREY, BC, May 18 /CNW/ - A Vancouver area non-profit society is moving ahead with their solution to advanced dental education serving community needs.

The Pacific Oral Health Society (P.O.H.S.) is celebrating their 'Hard Hat Event' on Thurs May 19th - on the site of their dental centre under construction at 15850 - 24th Ave, Surrey.  This facility will provide a teaching campus for all levels of dentistry, and at the same time allow many underprivileged community members to be treated with much needed dentistry at this world calibre facility. Our beta test event on Dec. 4th in conjunction with the charitable organization 'Dentistry From the Heart' was overwhelmed with some 350 patients seeking treatment. This convinced the Board and Stakeholders that there was indeed a demand for this treatment and educational centre.

"P.O.H.S. is unique and important for Surrey and all surrounding communities" says President and Founder Dr. Harry Dhanju of Surrey. "We are excited to be working with the University of British Columbia, Faculty of Dentistry, the City of Surrey, and dozens of other stakeholders who have supported and made this Centre possible. UBC Dentistry's involvement is consistent with their tradition of working with and in the communities in B.C."

The 'Hard Hat Event' is a celebration of the project to date as we enter the construction phase. We can now develop the curriculum to provide both clinical education as well as much needed dental care by the doctors who shall both participate and study at the Centre.

The Event begins at 6:00 PM on May 19th with a wine and cheese reception, with the ceremony following at 6:30 PM under the tents on site.  Speakers include Dr. Chuck Shuler (Dean of UBC Faculty of Dentistry), Dr. Marcia Boyd (former Dean of UBC Faculty of Dentistry), Dr. Chris Zed (Associate Dean of UBC Faculty of Dentistry), Mr. Marvin Hunt (Councilor - City of Surrey), Dr. Harry Dhanju (Founder and President of Pacific Oral Health Society)
