Monarch Dental partnered with the Smiles for Everyone Foundation and opened its Plano office to provide free dental services for over 60 underinsured, low-income individuals.

Volunteers from Monarch Dental kicked off the spring season by providing underserved communities with a heart full of warmth! Five dentists and their dedicated support staff gathered at the Plano Day of Giving on March 30th to provide pro bono care for those who needed an extra ray of sunshine. Patients were informed about the event through the Smiles for Everyone Foundation’s partnerships with local nonprofits, such as Pathways Youth & Family Services, The Samaritan Inn Shelter, and Amazing Grace Food Pantry.

Patients couldn’t get enough of the atmospheric change provided by the kindhearted volunteers. “The Team was very friendly and the doctor listened to my concerns,” reported Rashika S. “I am grateful for the dental plan I enrolled in and am coming back!” In agreement, Patient Angel J. added, “This event is awesome and I really enjoyed my visit, thanks to Dr. Patel. Everybody was respectful and polite, and I am very grateful. God bless you for your heart!”

The Smiles for Everyone Foundation would like to thank the entire Team of volunteers, who joined together from across the Monarch Dental offices around Dallas, for all of their hard work. The volunteer dentists included Dr. Gail DeGuzman, Dr. Rosa Joy, Dr. Wilner Loiseau, Dr. Ayesha Malik, and Dr. Brinda Patel. With each of their help, we were able to donate nearly $50,000 of dentistry in the form of checkups, cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments, fillings, extractions, and more!

The next Day of Giving that the Smiles for Everyone Foundation will be hosting will be in San Antonio on April 6th. Please visit http://www.smilesforeveryone.org for more information.
