We Believe it is Part of Our Mission, as Dental Providers, to Give Back to the Community by Serving with Our Time, Resources, and Skills.

We are always looking to give back, whether it’s in our local community or across the world, it is part of who we are at Seaside Dental. Dr. Minger has worked with the Dental Community Fellowship, providing dental services in Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Burundi, Uganda, and the Dominican Republic where she was joined by Linda.

The doctors and team have given their time to the Third Ave Charitable Organization (TACO), the UCSD pre-dental program, Feeding America, Toys for Joy & Toys for Tots.
