At Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D. Family Dentistry, we love to give back to the Decatur, AL community we are proud to serve. Our staff participates in many local events to help our friends and neighbors achieve a high level of dental health. Whether through the Give Kids A Smile day, in which we gave more than $14,000 in free dental work to local children, volunteering at our local schools and churches, or working with PACT and Neighborhood Christian Center by providing free dental care, we are always looking for a way to help our community.
One of our, I guess, largest and most rewarding community involvement activities is our Give Kids A Smile program that we do every year. This is an event in February in conjunction with the National American Dental Association Give Kids A Smile program. It's designed to provide dental care to children who have no other means to obtain care. Our staff is totally 100% behind it. They donate time to help children who need dental care.
We also take time to recognize those who serve our community. Each fall, we make sure to thank our patients who are teachers with an appreciation bag – just something to say that we appreciate what they are doing for our city’s children. We also participate in Donated Dental Services (DDS) to provide dental care to handicapped persons.
