Help us help local children!
This month, Deschutes Pediatric Dentistry is involved in three great opportunities to give back to the kids in our community! We hope that you’ll join us in helping others in need and being a part of something bigger.
We are one of two premier sponsors for the Grin and Bear It Run on March 5 at Les Schwab Amphitheater. We have been sponsoring this run for 4 years now in an effort to support Healthy Beginnings.
According to their website, Healthy Beginnings provides access to health, education and behavior services for young children and their families. All young children will have access to health and developmental screenings providing needed referrals, services, education and support to children and their parents so that they enter kindergarten healthy and developmentally prepared to learn.
The Kids Center
We are sponsoring the St. Patrick’s Day Dash on March 12 and the Healing Hearts Luncheon on April 5, both of which support The Kids Center. Last year, more than 500 members of our community came together to raise more than $100,000 for the prevention, evaluation and treatment of child abuse in Central Oregon at the Healing Hearts Luncheon.
The Kids Intervention and Diagnostic Service (KIDS) Center is a child abuse intervention center serving Central Oregon. We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the prevention, evaluation and treatment of child abuse. They interview and medically evaluate children who have suspected abuse. Their child-friendly environment seeks to find out what has happened and to provide a path to healing through family support and therapeutic services.
We also donate monthly to the kids center. We started out 2016 by donating 500 toothbrushes and flossers for kids and teens. Dr. Steve loves helping the community! Contact us if you want more information on how to get involved.
