Humble TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
With two of her adult children serving in the armed forces, Dr. Susan E Lunson, has a personal connection to troops serving abroad, especially those who are away from their families and loved ones during the holidays. Using goods collected from fundraisers at her dental practice in Humble, TX, Dr. Susan Lunson has helped support organizations this holiday season who provide care to overseas troops.
Dr. Lunson pioneered Operation Sweet Tooth at her local Humble, TX dental office where she and her staff held a candy buyback program after Halloween and donated the candy to Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. and Operation Gratitude. Both organizations provide packages and support to overseas troops. Sweets gathered from Operation Sweet Tooth in early November were donated to provide care packages during the Holiday season when troops are especially longing for reminders of home.
“Operation Sweet Tooth is our way of helping people on both ends of the spectrum,” said Dr. Susan Lunson. “We give extra encouragement for kids to get rid of that excess candy that isn’t beneficial to their overall oral health and use that to encourage and thank our troops for the services they are providing for our country.”
After their Halloween festivities, children and their parents were invited to visit Dr. Susan Lunson’s Humble, TX, office where they could receive $1 per pound of unopened candy that was brought for the troops.
As a member of Blue Star Mothers herself, Dr. Lunson is heavily involved in giving year-round support for troops who are serving abroad.
“In my life I have three main passions: dental health, kids and the military,” said Dr. Lunson. “With Operation Sweet Tooth, I’m able to combine all those three passions.”
Dr. Lunson began her career in the dental industry as a hygienist for ten years, during which she decided to return to school to become a dentist. She completed her dental education at the University of Texas Dental Branch-Houston in 1985. For nearly 30 years, Dr. Susan E Lunson Dentist has been taking care of the dental needs of patients in Humble, TX area, providing a wide range of dental and cosmetic procedures. She has a particular interest in the treatments of sleep disorders with appliance therapy and facial pain.
