SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) April 15, 2019
Volunteers from various Monarch Dental offices gathered early Saturday morning to deliver Smiles for Everyone in Texas! The Team, comprised of nine doctors and their eager support staff, delivered over $40,000 of donated dentistry to the underserved communities of San Antonio. These low-income patients were made aware of our Day of Giving through the Smiles for Everyone Foundation’s partnerships with local nonprofits, such as Arms of Hope, a shelter for women and children; Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, a program designed for underprivileged youth; and SAM Ministries, an organization that supports the homeless population.
Nearly 50 patients were able to receive free x-rays, cleanings, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments and more. For some, the most beneficial experience was learning how to practice better oral hygiene from a licensed professional. Patient Teneisha R., from the Salvation Army, stated, “I feel better educated, and cleaner! I’m proud of you all for extending your business to help those without a dental plan.”
The Smiles for Everyone Foundation would like to give a warm thanks to all of our hardworking volunteers, including Dr. Houssam Alghadban, Dr. Jose Arevalo, Dr. Vanessa Bednarik, Dr. Arthur Bryant, Dr. Marc Ervin, Dr. Taoufik Faddoul, Dr. Edgardo Gonzalez, Dr. Nareej Nagella, and Dr. Robin Schroeder. It is each of their compassion and dedication that provided the San Antonio community with another reason to smile.
The next Day of Giving that the Foundation will be hosting will be in Mesa, Arizona on April 14th. Please visit http://www.smilesforeveryone.org for more information.
