Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
On Saturday, November 9, Smile Generation-trusted clinicians, along with their dental care teams, volunteered their time to provide donated dentistry to Phoenix area community members in need.
Partnering with Care Partnership, a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Smile Generation-trusted clinicians and dental care teams set up an onsite dental clinic and, in a matter of hours, treated 50 patients, providing more than $23,000 in donated dental services. Treatments included exams, x-rays, cleanings, extractions, fillings, inlays and onlays. PDS® Serve Foundation mobile dental clinic was onsite for the clinicians to utilize in providing quality care and serve Phoenix area residents.
“Giving back to the community is something that my parents instilled in me and is a practice that I am trying to instill in my children as well. I think sometimes we get caught up in our lives and forget to appreciate what we have, and how fortunate we are compared to others,” said Dr. Ian Young, Tempe Modern Dentistry and Orthodontics. “My goal in giving back is to make every person's life that I come into contact with just a little better than before they came to see me. If we can get people to give just a little back, we can improve the quality of life for so many.”
Joining Dr. Young to provide dentistry to those in need were Dr. Eric Ellis of Every Kid’s Dentist, Dr. Griff Haeggquist of Every Kid’s Dentist, and Dr. Jonathan Richtsteig of Queen Creek Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics.
