Next giveaway July 11; more than 84,000 meals donated to date

Mint Dentistry Employees Volunteer at Grocery Giveaways

“We just want to do our part and try to help people out,” Dr. Harrison said. “Serving families by providing food is an honor--but providing them hope through that donation means even more.”

MINT dentistry’s goal of putting smiles on people’s faces doesn’t stop during a pandemic: To help a community in need, the dentistry practice is providing groceries for people who are experiencing food insecurity. More than 2,000 families have already benefited from the food donation boxes that have created 84,000 meals, and another grocery giveaway is planned for July 11. It’s all part of a commitment to serving the community from MINT dentistry founder Dr. Field Harrison and his wife, Sabrina, who feel compelled to do something to help those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and hope others are inspired to do the same.

“We just want to do our part and try to help people out,” Dr. Harrison said. “Serving families by providing food is an honor--but providing them hope through that donation means even more.”

The next grocery giveaway takes place Saturday, July 11, at the MINT dentistry in Bishop Arts at 2433 W Davis Street in Dallas from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

During a grocery giveaway, more than 500 boxes of groceries purchased by MINT from Minnie’s Food Pantry are given away, each containing a week’s worth of food. People can simply line up in their vehicles to receive a box (touch-free, from volunteers wearing masks), and a message of hope. Each box contains a week’s worth of meals and includes non-perishable items like spaghetti, rice, peanut butter, canned goods and more. The box also contains something important for a healthy smile: a full-sized tube of toothpaste from MINT dentistry.

If you or someone you know is in need of groceries, please join the MINT dentistry Grocery Giveaway on July 11. There is no need to sign up – just show up! Giving is first-come, first-served in a drive-thru style pick-up line with no contact (following CDC guidelines). Guests can check the @mintdentistry Instagram for updates on where the car line will start.

As a result of the effects of COVID-19 on the economy and nation, one out of every six families in America is struggling with food insecurity. The global pandemic has put many individuals and businesses out of work and many are in need of weekly groceries to feed their own families. Through several weeks of grocery giveaways, MINT dentistry has provided more than 2,000 boxes of food to North Texans in need.

Though the cause of hunger is serious, the grocery giveaway events have a celebratory vibe: MINT dentistry employs a local DJ to play music, volunteers dance while they assist, and volunteers hold signs with messages like “We Love You” in English and Spanish. There are smiles all around, waves from volunteers, and honks from appreciative recipients, who find something else in their box when they arrive home – a personal message from MINT dentistry that expresses best wishes and a prayer for the recipients of the box.

“Our hearts broke when we saw news reports of the long lines of people who needed something as simple as a meal,” Sabrina Harrison said. “This is our opportunity to share a message of hope and love with everyone. We are grateful for our colleagues who have stepped in to help, too.”

Through his community service and through his dental work, Dr. Harrison is passionate about healing pain—whether that’s dental pain, spiritual pain, mental pain, loss of dignity, or financial pain. Even before he graduated from dental school, Dr. Harrison was volunteering in a clinic offering free dental care in South Dallas, and traveling to Romania with other doctors and dentists to end a village's suffering with tooth and jaw pain. Dr. Harrison and Sabrina Harrison are devout Christians who welcome those of all faiths, and who believe strongly in giving back to their communities.

MINT dentistry has more than 50 locations in Dallas and Houston, with skilled support staff that have introduced discount and dental insurance to thousands without insurance or those whose insurance has let them down.
