This September, Emerald Coast Dentistry in Fort Walton Beach will strap on their running shoes to participate in the One Run 5K, a five-kilometer running event held as part of the ONE Campaign by the Emerald Coast Autism Center. This run, which will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012 in Valparaiso, benefits autism research, education, and families raising special-needs children.

The center often partners with Emerald Coast Dentistry, since the clinic specializes in providing expert cosmetic and family dental care to special-needs patients of all ages. In fact, the Emerald Coast Autism Center often refers its members to the practice for care. Lead practitioner Dr. Sutton is board certified in both nitrous oxide and pediatric sedation, and over the course of her career so far, she's performed over 1000 of these sedations on patients from all walks of life.

Individuals who would like to also take part in the One Run 5K, should know that it begins at 4:30 p.m. at Glen Argyle Park, between North Bayshore Drive and Glenview Avenue in Valparaiso. The Emerald Coast Autism Center also hosts a benefit golf tournament this year, and hopes to increase the size and publicity of its events to an all-time high over the next few years.

Running for autism may seem like a change of environment for a dentistry practice, but participating in the One Run 5K is just another way Emerald Coast Dentistry strives to involve themselves in the area's special needs community, and offer their outreach and understanding to special needs individuals in the region.
