Recently we had the opportunity to donate to Pediatric Smiles of Orem. They are a fantastic local dental office that sponsors programs to go to South American countries and teach children about dental health and hygiene. We spoke to Gemma from their office, and she answered some questions for us!
Name Tag: What is the name of your organization? Do you have a mission statement?
Gemma: Pediatric Smiles of Orem – Our mission is to be the premier pediatric dental office in Utah. Our dentists and team are knowledgeable, respectful, detail oriented, caring, and personable. We strive daily for professional dental excellence through our caring, sincere, and professional treatment for each patient. We promote superior dental health through precise diagnosis, expertise in dental procedures, and advanced patient education.
Name Tag: What was donated to you? How will it help your organization?
Gemma: We received name tags. It will help the children become more familiar with office stuff and be on a first name basis with them. This helps the children be more at ease in their surroundings as they have something familiar/a familiar face around them.
Name Tag: If you could describe your company in 3 words, what would they be?
Gemma: Helpful, generous, and caring.
Name Tag: Do you have any other comments you would like to add?
Gemma: I know you were interested in our efforts to help the local community. Dr. Shepherd and Pediatric Smiles of Orem have participated in the Give Kids A Smile event for many years. This event has helped many local underprivileged children receive the dental care they need. Dr. Shepherd has also donated many thousands of dollars in dental work to another local charity, Community Health Connect. He has helped many children who are in pain and in dire need of treatment. Dr. Shepherd does all he can to help those in need. Not only in the community, but in his office and amongst his staff.
