Dentists Giving Back to the Community

The doctors at Woodbury Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics are ambassadors of giving back to the community.  Our doctors volunteer their time to many dental outreach programs, such as:

  • Give Kids a Smile

    a nationally recognized day sponsored by the American Dental Association. The doctors at Woodbury Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics provide underprivileged kids free dental screenings, examinations and fluoride treatments locally in Nassau County.

  • Flying Doctors of America

    a charitable organization that brings hope and healing to remote and less fortunate regions all around the world. Specifically, Dr. Doug has served as a team leader for the Peru Mission, where he brings along a team of 30 medical and dental professionals to the mountains of Peru.

  • The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children campaign

    where their goal is to find underprivileged children a “dental home” here in the US.

In addition to philanthropy in the area of dentistry, our doctors are also passionate volunteers for non-dental causes such as:

  • MIB (Making it Better), an organization that’s mission is to Make It Better for children with osteosarcoma, bone cancer.
  • Sunrise Day Camp, a camp specialized for children with pediatric cancer and their siblings.  Dr. Celia and her family are actively involved in the camp and also a Team Leader for SunriseWALKS, a fundraising event with the goal of providing free tuition at this special day camp.
  • Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, an organization that’s mission is to accelerate the discovery of drugs to help prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer’s, other dementia and cognitive aging.
  • Cycle for Survival, a nationwide event aimed at raising money for research that is directly allocated to rare cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
  • Project Share, a monthly program that works with the homeless on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and teaches high school students to put a face and name on the homeless of NYC.
