Patients and friends,
July 3rd holds a special place in my heart–the birthday of a beautiful soul and one of my closest friends, Betsy Burton. She passed away twelve years ago, but during her too short life as a teacher she touched the lives of countless children, showed them hope, joy and success and made their lives better in countless ways.
This year, on Friday June 29th, Complete Health Dentistry of Portland will host a third annual ‘Give a Grin’ again in her memory. All fees collected on June 29th will be donated to one of three charities: The Dental Foundation of Oregon, The Jerome Kersey Foundation, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It is wonderful moment for all of us to help make some lives better. Every patient we see will figuratively ‘put their money where their mouth is’ by choosing which organization their fees will help.
To all of you who would like to give a little extra this summer, make an appointment on that day or drop by to show support. We will have some fun extras during the day including the ‘Tooth Taxi’ mobile dental van. If you would like to find out more about each charity, please see below.
