Dentist II- Oral Surgeon
Company: La Clinica de la Raza
Posted on: June 8, 2021
Who we are: La Clnica de La Raza is a community-based health
center committed to providing culturally appropriate, high-quality,
and accessible health care to the diverse communities of the San
Francisco Bay Area. We have spent over 40 years advocating for and
creating a health-home for the many that have been denied access to
care. As health care activists, we are dedicated to ensuring that
individuals who do not have healthcare coverage receive the same
quality healthcare as those who do. From our genesis as a community
health center in 1971, we understood that we cannot heal our
communities without also addressing the economic and social factors
that affect health. Many times, this requires that we go outside
and provide services in other settings that link individuals to our
health center for preventive and primary care. Over 90,000
individuals come to La Clnica because it is a welcoming place that
addresses the whole person, coordinating and connecting them to a
broad network of services to improve and maintain their health and
well-being. While we are still known for our activism and spirit of
social justice, we are also proud to have grown into a
sophisticated provider of primary health care services with 35
sites across Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties.
