Veteran's Smile Day
November 11, 2016 7:30am-5:30pm

We are getting ready for our second annual Veterans Day Smile event. We had such a successful event last year that we are again sponsoring a full day of free dental services for our local veterans. We are very excited to have other area dental offices join the effort and host their own events. Breton Gardens Family Dentistry will be providing a limited amount of appointment vouchers to eligible patients. Potential patients must call the office to pre-register. At this time the patient will be asked to answer a few basic health questions and provide some sort of proof of previous military service to verify eligibility. We will be providing services such as cleanings, x-rays, exams, fillings, extractions, and denture repairs. To pre-register please call our office at 616 455-0720. You must be registered by noon on Friday November 4 to recieve an appointment voucher.

Help on The Hill
Help on the Hill 2013 was a hit. A few of your Oncologic Dental team members, Dr. Heather Mallory-May, Stephanie Zichterman, and Lauri Rice volunteered for the event to educate healthcare professionals and cancer patients for the Van Andel Institutes two day program.

"Help on the Hill is a free educational program that will allow cancer survivors, patients, family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals the opportunity to come inside the walls of a world-class cancer research institute. For two days the latest research and breakthroughs in cancer will be discussed. This program is for anyone who would like to learn more about cancer and will provide insight and answers that will be of benefit. Make new friends, learn something new, establish a network of support and feel empowered to conquer cancer!"

Take a Bite Out of Cancer
Throughout May, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Michigan Dental Association are conducting the largest bone marrow drive in the state. The goal…. Collect 10,000 names for the registry and raise $50,000 in support of cancer research.

It's free, it's easy, and it's painless! You can be part of the registry today! Because there are not enough registered donors, the probability of finding a match is still very low. This is why every donor counts! Each one of us can potentially save a life! To register as a bone marrow donor, you must meet requirements listed at our office, and complete the registration form. Once inside our office, you will be asked to swab the inside of your cheek and hand the swab stick to the dental staff who will place it in a bar coded, sterile envelope to be typed. Your tissue type will then be listed anonymously on the international bone marrow registry. All information is strictly confidential.

To find out more or to become part of the registry, please call us today and we will get you in during a time that works for you!
