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.
Last 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! This years event will be held on Friday, May 8th. If you are in desperate need of dental care we would love to lend a hand at this years event! Click here to see previous event videos!
We are proud to support our troops overseas by donating Halloween candy each and every year. 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. We typically host the event a day or two after Halloween, so keep your eyes peeled for more information around then.
