The Dental Center of Goshen is passionate about children’s dental health and our local community. We are continuously looking for ways to give back. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and we are proud to participate in the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program. We have worked with local high schools to offer college scholarships to graduates and provide students with important information on maintaining proper oral health. Each year we sponsor various community events, host drives for Toys for Tots and provide dental health supplies where needed. The Dental Center of Goshen offers free resources to local organizations and community members including educational materials and oral health screenings.
We don’t just support the people of Goshen, we support the animals too! We have partnered with the Potawatomi Zoo to care for the oral health of their furry family. Our dentists have performed root canals, extractions and cleaned the teeth of leopards, river otters and more. Click here to visit our blog for more information.
