The Emily Letran Foundation


The Emily Letran Foundation (ELF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing dental services and more for the community.


We strive to provide:

    1. Mobile dentistry for outreached communities and senior centers in Southern California
    2.  Monthly Day of Free Dentistry (will alternate between various offices) to serve under priviledged individuals and veterans
    3. Offer more extensive children treatment such as braces, to improve a child’s confidence, on an individual and need-based basis
    4.  Scholarship for business mentoring for individuals from disadvantaged background

The Foundation will also provide education outreach programs to area Elementary Schools, Head Start programs, Woman Infant Centers, Churches, Day Care Centers; teaching the benefits of healthy dental habits, good nutrition, frequent dental screenings and the value of early detection. Our prevention efforts will target pregnant women, infants and children, seniors, and others, regardless of social or economic status.
