Whew, what a day! Dr. Anderson and our dental assistant extraordinaire volunteered their time today to serve the people of Grants Pass in a special sort of way. The dental van travels throughout the state of Oregon to provide necessary dental procedures to help people out that are in a tight spot. Dr. Anderson and Shawna have both volunteered with the dental van before, but today was their first adventure working together at the van. We were able to perform extractions and fillings on 10 patients this morning to help people get feeling better and ready for the upcoming holidays. While each patient is told to pick 1 tooth to receive treatment on, Dr. Anderson and Shawna were able to sneak in some “extra holiday cheer” for a few of the patients. One wonderful woman was able to have 5 fillings done on her front teeth in time for a perfect holiday smile! Everyone was so grateful for the dental care provided, one remarked how excited she was to be able to share a birthday dinner with her mom tomorrow now that she’s out of pain.
We are so grateful for everything that we have and love the chance we have to provide quality dentistry for our patients here in Grants Pass. Thank you for your trust in providing you the best dental care that we can.
