SAN ANTONIO, June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "My dentist was wonderful with such gentle hands! I loved [this event].
Before attending the San Antonio Day of Giving, Sherril had not been to a dentist in 22 years. On Saturday, June 9, nearly 50 volunteers gathered at the Monarch Dental® office at 1218 SW Military Drive in San Antonio to provide pro-bono dental services to low-income, underinsured individuals such as Sherril. In partnership with the Smiles for Everyone Foundation, Monarch Dental was able to provide nearly $45,000 in donated dentistry.
Smiles for Everyone Foundation also partnered with non-profit organizations around the community to identify individuals in need who would benefit most from this event. These organizations include SAM Ministries, which provides support services for the homeless; YWCA, an organization that strives to eliminate racism and empowers women; Arms of Hope, serving children and single moms; The Children's Shelter; and Big Brothers Big Sisters. With the help of these organizations, the volunteers were able to provide care for over 70 patients during the Day of Giving.
"It was such an amazing day to be able to help so many grateful and deserving individuals," says Dr. Marcus Ervin, PC President for San Antonio and Lead Dentist at the Monarch Dental office on Stone Oak Parkway. "It was great to see all of the teams come together from across the market and work as one cohesive team."
Since its inception, the Smiles for Everyone Foundation has delivered smiles to over 16,000 people in need, donating over $12 million in dental services. The Day of Giving events are a part of the Foundation's Community Smile Project, providing basic dental services such as cleanings, fillings and extractions for low-income, underserved individuals.
Smiles for Everyone Foundation has three more Days of Giving planned for Texas in 2018. They will be in Houston, Austin, and Lewisville in the months of July and September.
