Located in the heart of Stittsville, Warmstone Family Dentistry held their 10th annual Free Day of Dentistry on Saturday, June 5th 2021!
The Free Day of Dentistry was originated a decade ago by Dr. Shahram Yazdani and he has carried on the tradition at Warmstone. This special day is a way for the clinic to give back to those in the community who cannot normally afford dental care.
This year, Warmstone decided to focus on patients who have been greatly affected by COVID-19. The pandemic has made life very difficult for all, especially for certain industries that have been consistently shut down by ongoing lockdowns across Ontario. Both business owners and employees in these industries have suffered financial burdens as they try to help us all fight through this pandemic, and this was Warmstone’s way of saying “Thank You”.
Patients we served that day included small business owners, employees of small businesses that experienced a loss of income and those that experienced layoffs and/or reduction of hours. Other eligible industries and businesses included Gyms and Fitness Centres, Personal Trainers, Hair Salons, Spa and Esthetics, Dance Studios, Schools, Alternative “in-person” Learning Centres, Karate and Martial Arts, Live Event industry, Travel industry and Massage Therapy. These businesses and industries have done their part by shutting down for the greater good and Warmstone wanted to praise them for their courageous efforts in doing so.
This year was a great success for Warmstone. They were able to serve 45 patients that day and provided over $16k in treatment, which is a new record for the clinic! Services that were provided to both adults and children included complete oral exams with x-rays, cleanings, fillings, and even some extractions. Warmstone gathered a majority of their staff and a few family members as volunteers to help facilitate the event and ensure the day moved smoothly. Each patient walked away with a healthier smile and a small goodie bag to take home.
Warmstone couldn’t have done it without the help of several sponsors which include Alma Verde Canada, Oral-B, Carling Endodontics, Watersedge Dental Lab, Philips-Sonicare, Henry Schein, Medicom Group, Patterson Dental, Ivoclar Vivadent, Dentsply Sirona Canada Lab, and Hu-Freidy. Without their generous donations, the day would not have been nearly as successful.
We can’t wait until next year!
