Once again, Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants is excited to be a part of the Southern Nevada Dental Society’s Operation Dental Elf. This special event brings together local dentists to collect unwrapped toys and gifts to be distributed to the families of deployed military members who are stationed at Nellis Air Force Base.
The holidays can be especially hard on our local military families when their loved ones are protecting our country overseas, and Operation Dental Elf gives us and our patients a chance to show that we appreciate the sacrifice that they and their families make on our behalf. Many of them are on tight budgets and coupled with the additional pressure of having one parent gone, December can become one of the most stressful months of the year. These presents not only meet a material need for these families, but they also show that we as a community are standing with them and fully support them.
We will have a box in our office through December 4 to collect new, unwrapped toys to be distributed to these special families by the 99th Dental Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base. This year, as you are shopping for your own family, we encourage you to pick up a little something extra for this very worthwhile cause and drop it by either of our locations. It’s just one more way the staff at Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants make people smile.
