A Few Ideas on Ways to Donate Time and Services
The doctors that I currently work for are very generous and enjoy giving back to our community.
Donating can be very rewarding personally, professionally and financially.
Donating time, money and services can also provide more then a warm feeling it can come back to you in the form of new patients. When we participate in charitable events we let our community know. We have done press releases, news stories, facebook posts... if you don't put it out there no one will know.
Every year we host a charity dental day, we join forces with our local nonprofit organization that helps the under privileged children in our area. We will schedule a full day and provide preventative as well as restorative treatment. Last year we provided over $8,000 of treatment and services in a 6 hour day.
Every year the Leader Dogs for the Blind in our community host an auction to raise money.
Our office donated a smile makeover- it was such a hit that they ended up donating 2.
We donated tooth brushes to one of our patients who went on a misson trip to Africa- this photo is on our wall and was posted on facebook.
