Western Dental Plays Santa Claus
ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 21, 2018--’Tis the season of giving at Western Dental.
One of the nation’s largest dental providers and a leader in accessible, affordable oral healthcare, has been busy during the holiday season, spreading the Christmas cheer to its many youthful patients.
Earlier this year, Western Dental converted some of its 200-plus existing California offices to Western Dental Kids, including a new logo, a new office design and décor.
This December, Western Dental made a lot of its young patients happy, providing Santa Claus visits to every one of its 23 children’s pediatric dentistry offices (WDKids) in Northern and Southern California.
Western Dental distributed more than 4,500 toys and gifts to young patients and their friends at its WDKids offices. Each office received approximately 200 unwrapped toys.
“Earlier this year, Western Dental made a huge commitment to focus on the dental needs of children by creating Western Dental Kids,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. “Besides providing them with the necessary dental care, we also wanted to create a fun environment for the children we treat. Our offices really enjoyed bringing that special Christmas spirit to our kids through gift-giving. It’s the season of giving back and we wanted to do that for all our young patients.”
The gift-giving didn’t stop at its own offices. Western Dental also donated 400 unwrapped toys to Sam Ministries in Texas on behalf of Brident Dental, an affiliate of Western Dental that has 34 offices throughout Texas.
In addition, Western Dental donated 50 unwrapped toys from its corporate employees to Healthy Smiles Kids of Orange County.
