H. Peter Ku DDS recently held a free dental day for those who can’t afford insurance, and staff volunteered over 80 man hours to give out $10,000 of essential dental care to those in need.
Fort Worth, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- Corporate social responsibility is perhaps felt most keenly in private practices, where qualified doctors swear an oath to do all they can to help those in need. Dental work in America is the best anywhere in the world, but unfortunately that means it is also expensive, and many people forego proper dental treatments because they can’t fund insurance. H. Peter Ku DDS has a practice in Fort Worth Texas that operates free dental days, where the staff generously donates their time and talent to provide dental care for those without insurance and most in need.
Over their latest free dental day, Dr. Ku’s office volunteered more than 80 man hours from dental hygienists, dental assistants and dentists who were supported in turn by many friends of the team who gave their time freely to ensure the best experience for those coming to receive treatment.
Over the course of the day, Dr. Ku’s office gave away around $10,000 of dental services to both children and adults. In addition, Ora-Pharma donated the lunches, and Benco Dental Supplies donated dental supplies to ensure the day ran smoothly and helped as many people as possible.
Local businesses Dealer Alternative and One Stop Printing have been long time friends and supporters of the office and both donated give-aways for patients, making the day far more than essential dental maintenance for those who attended.
A spokesperson for H. Peter Ku DDS explained, “Our partners in delivering this day understand, as we do, that people who cannot afford dental insurance will almost certainly be facing difficulties beyond their dental health alone. The amazing people who rallied around this cause, whether individuals lending support on the day or business leaders making donations that brightened the lives of our patients, have all demonstrated extraordinary community spirit, and we are so thankful to them all for making the day a success.”
