The dental care team at Fullerton Dental Group will be opening their doors to the community Saturday, Sept. 13, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., inviting Fullerton residents to join their family-friendly community event. Members of the community will be treated to free burgers from Bomb-Diggity and there will be activities for children including a face painter and balloon artist.
“We are happy to welcome the members of the Fullerton community into our office and treat them to a tour of our office,” said Dr. Peter Pham of Fullerton Dental Group. “We look forward to having the opportunity to serve patients in the community and provide them with individualized care in a contemporary and comfortable environment.”
Fullerton Dental Group, locate at 1573 S. Harbor Blvd. in Fullerton, is equipped with advanced technologies that allow home-based registration capabilities, digital x-rays and CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry. The use of this technology allows patients to enjoy the offices products and services while receiving the highest quality patient care.
The office utilizes digital x-rays which are safer for the patient, lowering the risks of radiation and enhancing overall patient care. The use of clear, digital dental images can also improve patient communication, help patients better understand their options and allow the clinician to provide a more effective diagnosis.
Patients can enjoy the convenience of same-day dentistry with the use of CEREC CAD/CAM, a less invasive form of dentistry that delivers durable, natural looking precisely-fit crowns. For every CEREC CAD/CAM that is completed at Fullerton Dental Group, a donation will be made to charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

For the second straight year, Cal State Fullerton leads the pack of “Best Bang for the Buck” universities in California and is No. 4 nationally, according to the 2014 rankings released today by Washington Monthly. The magazine’s annual rankings, published this year in its September-October 2014 issue, “are based on the economic value students receive per dollar” at the nation’s universities and colleges. Washington Monthly editors describes its list as “those colleges in America that do the best job of helping non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.”
“Out of the 1,540 colleges and universities in our broader rankings, only 386 made the cut as Best Bang for the Buck schools, the majority of them public institutions.” The first three top-ranked schools on this year’s list of master’s universities are City University of New York campuses (Brooklyn, Queens and Baruch), followed by Cal State Fullerton at No. 4. In a separate ‘Public Good’ ranking of master’s universities based on “the value of their contribution to the public good,” five CSU campuses make it in the top 25, including: Fresno (#6), Los Angeles (#7), Dominguez Hills (#10), Fullerton (#21) and Humboldt (#23).
As the editors explain it, the institutional ranking is based on three categories: “Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).” Washington Monthly‘s annual College Guide “rate[s] colleges based on how well they perform with the students they have, regardless of the students’ backgrounds or SAT scores, on metrics that measure the widely shared national goals of increasing social mobility, producing research and inspiring public service.”
First introduced in 2005, the ranking is compiled by tabulating institutional showings in the three categories, which are weighted equally and rely on publicly available data. This year, that includes data that universities and colleges report to the Corporation for National and Community Service in their applications for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
