Giving Back to the Community

For those of us who are privileged to live in the United States, it is easy to forget that many people around the world do not have access to basic dental services. Dr. Denise has participated in mission trips to Honduras. He went with a group called Cure International to provide free dental care to a very poor community.

Closer to home, Dr. Denise sponsors mouth guards for sports teams. He also sends his staff to local schools to educate children about oral health.
Dr. Denise is not alone in his efforts to reach out to communities that need dental care. According to the American Dental Association, countless individual dentists routinely provide free or discounted care to disadvantaged people who otherwise could not afford even basic dental services. According to one survey, this free care amounted to $1.6 billion in professional services in a single year.
