Giving Back to Our Community

The staff at Oak Hills Endodontics believe in giving back to our community.  Here is how Dr. Bates shares his knowledge and expertise to serve his community:

Dr. Bates At San Antonio Christian Dental

Since 2006, I have volunteered and still do each month performing exams and root canal treatments and permanent fillings on the teeth I treat. I love it! Can’t say enough about giving back and how good it makes me feel to help these unfortunate, wonderful individuals. We don’t fully appreciate our blessings until we serve the underserved.

Haven for Hope is a place of hope and new beginnings for people in Bexar County experiencing homelessness. It is made up of two major programs: the Courtyard and the Transformational Campus. Both are on the Haven for Hope property and require a visit to the Intake Department to get started. The Courtyard is a low-barrier safe sleeping program that offers shelter and basic needs. The Transformational Campus is a center that offers services and shelter with an emphasis toward addressing the root causes of homelessness.

On-Campus Partnership: Haven’s On-Campus Partners are those non-profit agencies who have a legally binding agreement with Haven for Hope of Bexar County, Inc. On-Campus Partners are located on Haven’s Campus and work directly with Haven. San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic is one of Haven for Hope’s On-Campus Partners. San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic is on a mission to extend Christ’s healing by providing charitable dental care to underserved Bexar County adults.

San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic provides free dental care for low income and homeless Bexar County adults.
