Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry is honored to serve our local community. We are eager to give back to those who have helped to make our practice what is it today!
Whether through sponsoring community events, donating to local charities, organizing food drives or providing free dental work to underserved children, we are committed to active involvement in the welfare of fellow Montgomery residents.
We’d love to share some of the great community activities we’ve been a part of!
It's that time of year again! On February 2nd, 2019, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry will be hosting their annual Give Kids a Smile Day. Dr. Christina Ciano, Dr. Geena Russo, and all of our hygienists will be providing free dental care to children ages 12 and under. Our goal is to raise awareness for the number one childhood disease: dental decay and provide education and examinations to those who cannot otherwise afford dental treatment.
Each child will receive comprehensive dental examinations, dental cleanings, professional fluoride treatments, dental x-rays, oral health care instructions, dental extractions, sealants, and dental restorations. It is our honor to pay smile forward to a community that continues to support us for our 5 year in a row.
Every year, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry sponsors Womanspace, a local non-profit agency supporting victims and families struggling with domestic violence and sexual assault. This December, we decided to ask all of you to help this worthy cause, too! We are now collecting donations (from the list posted below, please) at our office starting this Monday, 11/27, through Tuesday, 12/05. Please join us in brightening the holiday season for women and children in need! To learn more about Womanspace, visit their website.
In line with our mission to help Montgomery residents thrive, we also supported the Princeton Fitness & Wellness Center’s Community Health Fair. This free fair offered food, fitness and screenings—even face painting! Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry participated by teaching oral health education.
We invited the whole community to attend and join us in fun, family-friendly activities like face painting, balloon art, a photo booth and of course, ice cream from the Mr. Softee ice cream truck. We held a raffle for exciting prizes like: a Sonicare toothbrush, a gift card to a local restaurant, and an Amazon gift card! Make sure to come out and join us next year.
Every February, Dr. Ciano and Dr. Russo visit local preschools in honor of the American Dental Association's National Children’s Dental Health Month. They instruct children on brushing, flossing, and eating healthy foods for your teeth through singing songs and reading kid friendly dental books. Many of our current patients attend the schools we visit, so you may even get to see Dr. Ciano and Dr. Russo in between appointments!
In February, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry also celebrated Give Kids a Smile Day! The goal of Give Kids A Smile Day is to bring attention to the number one childhood disease: dental decay. Dr. Ciano, Dr. Russo, and Angela our dental hygienist, donated dental services for 25 children. These children received the following services: comprehensive dental examinations, dental cleanings, professional fluoride treatments, dental x-rays, oral healthcare instructions, dental extractions, sealants, and dental restorations. We had an amazing experience giving back to the community that has so strongly supported our practice.
In January, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry extended our holiday spirit by holding a month-long food drive. We asked our patients and their parents to bring some of the most needed items for The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen to our office. Our generous family of patients donated bags of instant oatmeal, canned soup and vegetables, cereal, coffee, peanut butter, pasta, salad dressing, and many more food items. In total, our combined efforts amounted to almost 75 pounds of food!
We were so excited about the donations, that we have decided to make this a yearly event!
