"I'm a disabled, senior veteran on a budget. This afforded me relief and satisfaction."
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) February 11, 2019
Perfect Smile Dental partnered with the Smiles for Everyone Foundation to open its Las Vegas office to provide free dental services for nearly 100 underinsured, low-income individuals on February 2, 2019.
Volunteers from Smile Brands Inc.'s affiliated offices in Las Vegas arrived on a rainy Saturday morning ready to cast rays of sunshine over all those who stepped into the Perfect Smile Dental office. The Team, comprised of nine doctors and over 30 support staff, worked together to deliver pro bono care to underserved patients. Members of the Las Vegas community were informed about the event through our Foundation's partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, such as Street Teens, an organization that gives guidance to homeless youth; Helping Hands of Las Vegas Valley, a support program for low-income senior citizens; and The Cupcake Girls, a resource center for victims of sex trafficking. Services included cleanings, fillings, extractions and more. Volunteer dentists included Dr. Karla Gutierrez, Dr. Gordon Murray, Dr. Sara Parasido, Dr. Kostika Polena, Dr. Cortnie Sanchez, Dr. Andrew Schneider, Dr. Joel Stokes, Dr. Kathleen Uy, and Dr. Matthew Welebir.
The patients were extremely vocal about how grateful they were for the level of compassion shown to them by the Team. "They were smiling through, even though they were tired," said Hollie S., who learned about the event from the local news. "I would just like to tell them thank you, and not to worry about the long wait. Linda C., from the Jewish Family Service Agency wrote to us saying, "The staff is the bomb and humor filled, but also extremely patient, caring, and knowledgeable. I'm a disabled, senior veteran on a budget. This afforded me relief and satisfaction. You're a blessing to the community! Keep up the good work, and God bless."
The Smiles for Everyone Foundation would like to give a warm thank you to the Team who volunteered their time on their day off to deliver Smiles to those in need. Their hard work truly paid off, as patient Hector M. said, "You made my 2019!"
