The Gift a Smile tradition at Hobble Creek Dental Care has turned out to be one of our favorite days of the year. We look forward to it every holiday season and love being able to make a difference in our community!
Our incredible team, including our 3 talented dentists and 4 remarkable hygienists, work the entire day without pay to help provide dental services to people who we feel could use a little extra help.
This year was no exception. We especially loved helping McKade who at just 4 years old was diagnosed with Leukemia. McKade has been named the “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Boy of the Year”. As a representative, McKade travels to different events for the society and all the money raised from their fundraisers goes to find cures for blood cancers just like his. We are so impressed with how brave and strong this little boy is! He is an example to all of us.
This year we were also able to help a mentally handicapped patient that also has Muscular Dystrophy. Another patient who received free services is a mother of two beautiful children that is facing financial hardship as she fights for her life waiting for a kidney transplant.
Other worthy candidates for our program this year were hard working and humble people that have served others as care givers, in scouting programs, or return military veterans.
With over $17,000 donated in dental services this year, we feel it was a day of success!
