Online PR News – 13-July-2011 San Diego, California – Dr. Ian Aires, D.D.S., a leading
                                  –
prosthodontist specializing in dental implants in San Diego and co-owner of the dental practice
Permadontics, recently offered a pro-bono lecture to dental students at UCSD focused on treatment
options for patients with extremely poor dental health that may be destined to wear dentures. San
Diego dental students run a free clinic offering dental care to the homeless and working poor
throughout the area and Dr. Aires was invited to share valuable information with the students in
order to enhance their knowledge about various dental treatment options.

During his lecture, Dr. Aires discussed innovative techniques that make it possible to restore
patients’ teeth using dental implants supported by fixed bridgework in just one day. This one day
implant restoration offers San Diego residents an opportunity to improve their dental health and
avoid the need for dentures. The procedure, often called “same day teeth”, has been utilized to treat
three patients Pro –Bono so far this year through the Permadontics center. Same day teeth
procedures have been performed on a Vietnam vet, a mother of four who was previously homeless
and is now a paid worker for the United Way, and an aging Russian immigrant.

“The UCSD student-run free dental clinic offers a great opportunity for dental students to gain
valuable dental experience while also obtaining a better understanding of the value of volunteerism
and social responsibility,” explains Dr. Aires. “Therefore, I was happy to share my expertise, as well
as to volunteer my time with the program. As an implant dentist in San Diego , I can provide
valuable information and insight to help students understand that there are alternatives to dentures,
and that with this innovative one day procedure, even patients coming to the free dental clinic can
receive dental implants quickly and effectively.”
To date, the student-run dental clinic at UCSD has provided more than $3.2 million in dental care to
homeless and working poor patients through three clinics throughout San Diego. The students have
already volunteered more than 49,000 hours, and local dentists volunteer their time one night per
week as well. So far, nearly 10,000 patients have been served by the clinic. UCSD is the only
undergraduate dental program in the country offering this program that provides valuable benefits to
both their students as well as the underserved local population.

Dr. Aires offers dental implants in his San Diego oral surgery practice, Permadontics, and
specializes in immediate function dental implants. Along with his partner, oral surgeon Dr. Joel
Berger, they offer patients innovative and transformative dental implant procedures that improve
dental health and enhance smiles.
