Hobble Creek Dental CarerOur recent Gift A Smile charity event was a huge success! We received several applications and our hearts went out to those people in our community. We had children with disabilities and a patient waiting for a heart transplant, another sweet patient with terminal brain cancer and a foster mom. We also met a family that lost their belongings in a house fire. We felt so privileged to meet so many amazing people. We ended up helping 12 deserving patients.rOn the day of our charity event, we closed the office to our regular patients and our two remarkable doctors, Stephen W. Pratt DDS and Stephanie Winterton DMD, donated their talents to help those in need. In addition, two of our incredible hygienists, four dental assistants and three office staff worked the entire day without pay in order to serve our community.rWhen all was said and done, the total costs of services donated was $25,569. We had a day full of root canals, crowns, extractions and dentures. It was so worth the smile we saw on our patients’ faces when they left the office.rWe feel blessed as an office to be able to give of our time and help those in need and look forward to many more wonderful years to come.rOur next event is in the planning stages and applications are being accepted now through Dec. 15.
