We Love Our Community

We Want To Help Those In Need

We select a charity every quarter and donate to it. After a dental checkup, if a dentistry patient doesn’t take our goodie bag, we add a dollar to the amount we’ll donate at the end of the quarter. In the past, we’ve given to the Children’s Heart Foundation and the local women’s shelter.
