We love our community here in Highlands Ranch. We love giving back and just being involved with even small things. We've had ice cream socials and fun little things here in the community that we sponsored. Sponsoring sports teams and things like that. We've done a lot with the American Transplant Foundation. One of our favorite patients is and so we've been able to do a lot with just elephant rock race and fundraising that happens through that. One of our favorite things is Dentistry From the Heart. That is just a program where everyone on our team volunteers their time and even specialists that we work with have come in and volunteered their time and talents to give back. It's free dentistry for whomever shows up that day. It's first come, first serve. Last year we did it right before Thanksgiving. That was just such a great way to kick off the holiday season and was great for our team and for the patients we were able to serve.
For me personally, just being able to give back to the community just since I mentioned my favorite thing in dentistry is just being able to build relationships and I work and live in Highlands Ranch. I love doing things that I can see my neighbors and friends and what not at. Being able to give back and make our community better is just so rewarding and so fun.
