Expect to be wowed.
Each year, though, the Celebration’s high point cannot be matched by any of these spectacular speakers and events. When The Lucy Hobbs Project Awards are presented to six indomitable women who are reshaping the profession of dentistry, awe-inspiring moments ensue.
As the applause dies down and each person is introduced, those in attendance have an opportunity to view the change one person can affect in the world.
This year, one of those changemakers is Charmaine Ng, DMD, recipient of the Lucy Hobbs Project Woman to Watch Award.
Ready to be inspired by Charmaine Ng, DMD?
Most of Dr. Charmaine Ng’s patients are experiencing homelessness or struggling with other barriers to quality healthcare; she aims to rebuild the function and beauty of their teeth through dentistry, while providing them with integrated care and improving their self-confidence.
To meet the needs of the underserved in her community, Dr. Ng created a dental program, HealthRIGHT360, in San Francisco, California. As the Founding Dental Director, she developed a whole body, integrated care approach that utilized the dental, medical, medical assisted therapy (MAT), and behavioral health services on site after early years dedicated to volunteerism.
What fueled her passion for giving back?
As an undergraduate student at University of California San Diego, Charmaine Ng dedicated her efforts with a student-run free dental clinic, and this passion for service led her to A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health to pursue a career in dentistry. Inspired by her educational experience, she continued to serve on the School’s alumni board for six years after graduation.
Today, by engaging in local community health committees and the San Francisco Dental Society, she gathers data and assesses the needs of the community to expand HealthRIGHT360’s clinical site and also the scope of the practice to children who have limited access to dental care.
Dr. Ng is an American College of Dentists’ Candidate 2019
