It Could Happen

to YOU

We need to prepare for the

unexpected! Our Society is compiling

reference files for all its members so

we can best assist you (or your family

members) care for your patients in the

event you have an unexpected

(personal) emergency. Please make

the call to our executive director at

(626) 285-1174 or send her an email,

director@sgvds.org. and let her know

which of your colleagues you would

want contacted in order to provide

short-term pro bono dental care to

your patients.

The Society will help you build your

support “team” that you, too, will

support, if need be. Preparing in

advance can make all the difference

in the world. If you would like to

discuss this “Mutual Office

Coverage,” also known as “MOC,”

with our president-elect, Dr. Michael

Tanaka, who is head of the

Committee, please feel free to contact

him at (626) 331-3354. Forms to get

you started in your emergency

coverage arrangements are available

at the Society office. Please do not

delay!
