Dental Choice - Community Involvement
Dentists in the Community | Calgary and Edmonton Dental Choice
Our commitment to others' well-being extends well beyond the high level of dental care that we provide in our treatment rooms. Each Dental Choice office in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta is involved with numerous charities that support the communities in which we're based. We are proud to make a difference in the lives of others through our dental treatments and charity projects. We never get tired of giving people reasons to smile!
At Dental Choice, we strive to take an active role in the health, happiness, and development of children in our communities. We offer support to local schools and help under-serviced children in the area receive a warm meal and provide funding to soccer teams in need of uniforms. The Dental Choice family also supports the Craniofacial Osseo-integration & Maxillofacial Prosthetic Rehabilitation Unit (COMPRU), an agency that helps individuals with facial deformities.
Our support extends to post secondary students as well. Dental Choice donates a $1000 award each year for the student in the Dental Assistant program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology who shows the most improvement between the first and second semesters. At Mount Royal University (SAMRU), we award $1000 to the E-Awards scholarships. The E-Awards recognize students who have contibuted to their campus community in an outstanding way that inspires and enhances the lives of their fellow Mount Royal students.
On a global level, our Dental Choice dentists have gone on several dental mission trips to Mexico, Nicaragua, and other countries where many people may not have access to quality dental care. We have also offered monetary support to victims of the 2004 Tsunami.
This year's recipient of our Dental Choice scholarship is Kristy in the Dental Assistant Program at NAIT. This is what she has to say:
"I just wanted to thank you for being the generous donor of the scholarship that I have received. It was a big surprise and great to know my hard work paid off. This scholarship will help me with my tuition. I greatly appreciate it!" - Kristy S
Dental Choice is a proud supporter of Canadian Olympic Athletes. We are currently sponsoring Olympic swimmer, Mike Brown, for his upcoming journey to the 2012 Olympics Games in London, England.
