Giving Back

Here at Contemporary Family Dental we have a firm commitment to giving back to those in our community.  How? Through various events like Dentistry from the Heart and our Halloween Candy Buy Back.

Dentistry From The Heart is a day we get to give back to our community. There are numerous dentists, dental hygienists, assistants, and front office staff who donate their time and resources in order to provide free dental care to as many residents in need as possible. Patients are able to choose a cleaning, a filling, or an extraction. No appointments are necessary as it is first-come, first-serve. The event is always open to the public and is designed to provide relief to the people in need in our community.

We are proud that the Dentistry from the Heart event donates thousands of dollars in free dental care and helps to provide much needed relief to the people in need in our community!

The next Dentistry From The Heart Event will not be for a few months, but we will be sure to let everyone know when we have a date. 

halloween candy buyback

At Contemporary Family Dental we host a Halloween Candy Buy Back for the community. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 1 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. How it works: Kids can bring in any extra, unwanted Halloween Candy and we will buy it back from them for $1.00 per lb of candy. We then ship all the candy to an organization called Operation Gratitude, who then ships it to our troops overseas. Kids are always welcome to write notes or draw pictures for our troops, which we send along with the candy. Here are a few photos from the a previous year’s Candy Buy Back!
