We are a Grand Rapids dentist office with a lot of heart. Each year, we dedicate time and energy to help our troops overseas and those in need. Giving back to our community is important to our mission as a family dental practice.
We understand that not everyone is able to afford quality dental care, which is why we donate our dental services once every year. Patients are able to choose a free dental cleaning, filling, or tooth extraction. The event is open to the public and services are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Our dentists, hygienists, assistants, and front office staff all pitch in to make the event a success for those who are less fortunate.
This years FREE Dental Day was held on May 3rd and it was a huge success! We were able to donate $23,500 in free dentistry to 72 community members in need.
In the last 4 years, over $100,000 in dentistry has been donated to 300 Grand Rapids residents! We are counting down the days till next years event, which will be held early May. Click here to see previous event videos!
We are proud to support our troops overseas by donating Halloween candy each and every year. If your child wishes to participate in this year’s event, have them bring their unwanted Halloween candy to our dentist office on November 1. We give your child $1 per pound of candy donated (up to 5 pounds). The candy goes to an organization called Operation Gratitude, who ships the candy to our troops overseas.
The Halloween candy buyback is a great opportunity for your children to learn the joy of giving. We encourage your child to write notes or draw pictures for our troops, which we send with the candy to be put in military care packages.
