February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. On Friday, February 4, 2011, Scott Dentistry opened its doors to the community for Give Kids A Smile. Several children from various neighborhoods in Indianapolis’ inner city were provided with free dental care on this fun day. The reception area was transformed into a children’s play heaven, and all the materials used were child-friendly all the way down to the fun zebra-head prophy angles. Each child left the office with a special goodie bag filled with stickers, toys and of course oral hygiene products.
The children were not the only ones who were given a special gift, however. Many of the Scott Dentistry team members volunteered their time and skills for free to this awesome endeavor including Dr. Lynna Scott, Betsy Barnett, Abby Maddox, Stacy Elliott and Sharese Hale. Each was left with an intense sense of gratitude and fulfillment. Red shirts were also worn under the Scott Dentistry uniform to commemorate National Wear Red Day in honor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement.
