We Need Your Toothpaste!
Our latest project is: Operation #Makingsmileshappen
We realize that usually we are helping to give people a reason to brush their teeth…but this time, we are teaching children how to brush their teeth!
On March 20th, World Dental Hygiene Day, we are bringing the University of Louisville’s Pre-Dental Society’s “Smile KY” team to St. Vincent de Paul to present a dental hygiene seminar for the children and their parents. Our brother Isaac, is president of the pre-dental society, and he has set all this up to help the children we have been working with!
On March 25th, our brother Isaac, along with several volunteer dentists and dental hygienists, are also bringing the Louisville Dental Society’s Dental Van to the St. Vincent de Paul Family Success Center. All the children will get a free cleaning and screening…for some, this will be their first experience with having their teeth cleaned! If there is a problem found, the volunteer dentists can take care of it right there in the van! We will be making some fun teeth cookies with the children while they wait, and some Disney princesses will be coming to make the day especially fun! Delta Dental has donated floss/toothpaste and toothbrush kits, but we really need full size tubes of toothpaste to give out! All of these children live in very low income households, so often times, toothpaste is one of the last items on the grocery list; and it doesn’t get purchased because there isn’t enough money. Help us change the situation for these children! Help us with “Operation #Makingsmileshappen”!
You can bring donations of full size tubes of any brand of toothpaste to either of Eberele Orthodontics offices in the greater Louisville, KY area, or donate online by clicking donate above. If you would like to volunteer, we have many ways for your to do this!
