This month, Goodman Dental Care will host its seventh annual Donated Dental Day. It’s the one day every year when we open our doors to provide much-needed dental services to people in our community who are living below the poverty line.
Everyone needs dental care — but that doesn’t mean everyone can pay for it. In fact, it’s estimated that over 100 million Americans avoid seeing the dentist as regularly as they should due to the high cost of dentistry. Our team wants to help people in Annapolis benefit from healthy smiles, and that’s why we look forward to the annual Donated Dental Day! We are grateful for the support of the Stanton Center Outreach Clinic, and many of our vendors who donate supplies for this special day.
Goodman Dental Care and Donated Dental Day
Goodman Dental Care has been serving the Annapolis community since Dr. Gary Goodman opened up shop in 1981, and we don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon. We are pleased to provide high-quality comprehensive dental services with an expert touch.
Each year, we combine all of our efforts to provide the Annapolis community with high quality dental services at Donated Dental Day. Dr. Gary Goodman and Dr. Jeremy Goodman work together with the whole Goodman Dental team to offer necessary services to men, women, and children of all ages and stages of life. Last year, we celebrated our 30th anniversary with an especially successful Donated Dental Day!
Dental Services Provided with a Smile
Some of the most common services we provide during Donated Dental Day are extractions, composite fillings, gum disease treatment, partial dentures, and other necessary restorative treatments. We provide literally thousands of dollars worth of dental care for patients who really need it — and they always leave smiling.
During Donated Dental Day, we also talk a lot about the importance of regular brushing and flossing for patients of all ages. By keeping your teeth clean through daily hygiene, you can steer clear of cavities that worsen to the point of needing extraction. Gum disease, caused by plaque and tartar buildup, also results in tooth loss and a host of related health problems if left untreated.
To keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy for life, remember to…
- Brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride
- Floss between teeth daily
- Maintain a low-sugar diet
- Avoid tobacco use
