Charitable Contributions & Accomplishments
We appreciate and are dedicated to our families, our patients, our colleagues and our community. Dr. Ali Alijanian and our team are committed to philanthropic events within our community and continue to encourage our colleagues to create ways to give back to the community.
Pay It Forward Day
In 2007, we began “Pay It Forward Day” in our local community. Oral surgery is coordinated with the general dentist and completed at a reduced or waived rate for those patients who qualified and could not normally afford to receive their much-needed dental care.
Healthcare for the Homeless
In 2009, we collaborated with Contra Costa Health Services Health Care for the Homeles to help create a better place for each other, for our children and for our community. Individual providers made small contributions of time, but as a group, we are able to restore people’s oral healthy and dignity, vastly improving the quality of life and increasing the potential these people have to regain employment and provide for their families.
Charity Lecture for the California Dental Association Foundation
In 2008, we hosted our first charity lecture for the California Dental Association Foundation in an effort to raise money for the foundation’s flagship programs, CDA Cares and the Student Loan Repayment grant. In exchange for a donation amount of their choice, which Dr. Alijanian matches, attendees are given the opportunity to earn CE units and hear Dr. Alijanian speak on various topics, educating them on his specialties, including the All-on-4® Treatment and hard and soft tissue management. As of today, Dr. Alijanian has raised over $42,000 to support the CDA Foundation, helping those who are less fortunate and selected dental students reach their career goals.
The Contra Costa Dental Society and the CDA Foundation elected Dr. Alijanian as the 2009 Exemplary Volunteer of the Year for his influence in various charity events and organizations in the area. He was also the recipient of the 2014 James M. Pappenfus Award, the Contra Costa Dental Society’s highest award. This award recognizes Dr. Alijanian’s outstanding service and dedication, as well as his efforts to practice and promote the field of organized dentistry to its highest and ethical standards in both the private and public domains.
