The weekend clinic, where dental crews and volunteers work from 5 a.m. to the early evening, costs about $500,000 to run, even with the free labor. Most of the money came in donations from Wells Fargo Advisors, Kaiser Permanente, El Camino Hospital and Delta Dental, along with a number of other groups. Santa Clara County donated $25,000 and the Santa Clara Dental Society donated $10,000. Private donors, mostly people in the dental industry, donated another $180,000.
