The Call to NonProfit

In 1998, Alireza Parhizkari, D.D.S. decided to donate his time and dental expertise to volunteer at a small community health fair. There, Dr. Parhizkari treated individuals suffering from intense dental pain. Their quality of living had been drastically reduced by untreated oral problems. Parhizkari was in disbelief.

"With the amount of wealth and resources in this area, it's staggering to have these conditions. It is a total shock."

When he received numerous requests to perform additional charitable work, he felt compelled to respond to the suffering all around him. For Parhizkari and co-founder Mike Reza, the desperation of those individuals, especially children, to be relieved of their dental pain was heartbreaking. Gradually, Dr. Parhizkari began devoting more and more of his time to volunteering in the East San Jose School District, Alum Rock. Ultimately, in October of 1999, his passion was officially transformed into Tooth Mobile-a 501 ©3 non-profit organization. In its infancy, Tooth Mobile operated as a single mobile dental clinic, and was financially supported by the private funds of Dr. Parhizkari, who served as both the Executive Director and primary dentist alongside President, Mike Reza.

Today, Tooth Mobile operates three mobile dental units and is currently designing two more. Traveling throughout California to schools, community centers, rural and urban areas, migrant camps, and health fairs, we provide dental care to thousands of the state's underprivileged children.
