Give Back When Your Use Your Dental Benefits Before Year’s End
By Amy Morgan
Oops! It’s the end of the year. You’ve paid for your dental plan all year long, but have you taken advantage of everything it covers yet? You are literally throwing money away if you don’t use the benefits you worked so hard for. And you don’t want to neglect your oral health. If you need dental work done – do it while your deductible has been met.
Lucky for you, 7to7 Dental & Orthodontics remains open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday- Friday, even during the holiday season — including New Year’s Eve. But if you schedule earlier in the month, you can enjoy shiny, clean teeth for your holiday parties and posts. An added bonus — not only will the hygienists polish your teeth during the cleaning, 7to7 Dental will give you a complimentary tube of whitening gel.
When you drop by the office you can help 7to7 Dental make the season merry and bright for those who are less fortunate. The practice makes it a point to give back — donating thousands of toys over the past 15 years to organizations like Blue Santa who work directly with families in the community. The team whole-heartedly embraces the opportunity to provide toys to needy children in San Antonio.
“We want to do what we can to make sure children have something to look forward to under the tree on Christmas morning,” said Travis DeZuba, 7to7 Dental’s Director of Marketing. Additionally, the practice will fulfill the wish lists for local families from Title One schools close to their offices. It won’t be difficult to find families to bless, as Travis already works closely with counselors at the schools for their annual school supply donations in the fall.
Sponsoring individual families allows the doctors and staff to have a closer connection with the recipients, he added. 7to7 Dental is committed to giving back to their local community. Last month they donated more than 120 turkeys to SAMM for people who are in transition and might not be able to afford a Thanksgiving meal. “Everything has gotten more expensive,” Travis said, “and the turkey’s the biggest part of the meal.”
The practice started with just one dentist and has grown to now employ 340 San Antonians. “We want our patients to know their contributions go to the community where they live and directly impact people in need in San Antonio,” Travis said. “We’re a local dental organization – not a big, corporate, out-of-town chain.”
