Charity project underway: first young patients arrive for dental consultation

Glasgow dental clinic in pledge to help group of young people

Our pledge to help

From time to time we focus on some charity work to help those people less fortunate in life – often through no fault of their own.

Last month we announced a collaborative project with the excellent team from Action for Children, a Glasgow based charity, which helps support young people in need.

The dental clinic team will look after the dental health of four of the charity’s young men and women who are given help and support in their lives for a variety of reasons.

As you’ll see from above we gave details of our pledge to support this worthwhile cause at a fundraising lunch organised by the Women of Influence organisation which is chaired by clinic friend and patient Jo Mickel. We’ve worked with Jo and her team on the Women of Influence committee for several years now.

The idea for this joint project came through a brainstorming session to discuss how the clinic could further support Action for Children in the year ahead.
SMILE MAKEOVER

LAst week the first of those young people identified by the charity as potentially requiring our professional help visited us at the clinic and it was a pleasure to welcome them.

Whether the young people require ongoing dental maintenance, hygienist appointments or some more advanced treatment or care to achieve a smile makeover, we’ll be on hand to do the necessary.

By committing to this project, we as a clinic want to help the charity organisers make a big difference to the lives of these young people.

Without question a great, confident smile can go a long way in helping cement professional as well as personal relationships – and the lack of good dental function or aesthetic appearance can reduce a person’s self-esteem and confidence.

We’ll keep you posted on the progress of this exciting project.
