As a pilot I love any excuse to fly and what better excuse then to help a sick patient get to an out-of- town medical appointment. Angel Flight™ arranges free air transportation for people who need to travel to receive lifesaving medical treatment but lack the means. Pilots then volunteer to fly these missions.
When teeth need to be removed the metal in crowns and bridges can be recycled. Dental restorations often contain gold along with silver, platinum or palladium that can be refined and recycled. If you choose to donate your old restoration, we collect this “scrap metal” and at the end of the year the money received is matched and donated to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. So many families are affected by breast cancer, I chose this charity because my mother is a breast cancer survivor!
We are proud to offer dental care at no cost for two of our favorite local non-profit residential programs, The Carying Place, and TROSA. The Carying Place works with homeless, working families and children. They offer their residents transitional housing while they are enrolled in a 16-week life-skills training program. TROSA is an innovative, multi-year residential program that enables substance abusers to be productive, recovering individuals by providing comprehensive treatment, work-based vocational training and education.
