Division Dental is proud to support a variety of local groups and activities. Here are a few of our recent adventures:
Running for a Cause
Team Division Dental participated in the 4th of July run for 6 years winning largest group or 2nd largest group every year. We support this event because running promotes a healthy lifestyle and all proceeds go to the local High School Cross Country Team.
Division Dental Studio has also been a sponsor of the yearly Dragon Boat 5k for the last 3 years. This race also helps support the High School Cross Country team.
Back to School
Every August Division Dental Studio puts together 2 backpacks full of school supplies for 2 children in need. Our patients help contribute and Division Dental Studio donates the backpacks and matches any school supplies donated by patients.
We 'buy' back our patient's Halloween candy. If our patients bring in at least half of their candy they receive a gift certificate for a movie and are entered into a drawing for a $100 bill. We then send the candy to our troops overseas-including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste in the boxes! This year we sent over 50 pounds of candy and hygiene supplies!
Thanksgiving Meal Food Shelf Drive
Every November we ask our patients to donate the 'fixings' of a typical Thanksgiving meal. Division Dental then purchases gift certificates from Lueken's Grocery for a family to buy a turkey. This year we were able to put together 10 full Thanksgiving dinners! We then took them to the Bemidji Area Food Shelf for distribution.
For several years we have held a toy drive with Division Dental matching any donations. This year we are going to participate in St. Philip's 'Tubs of Love'. Division Dental will be filling 2 tubs full of specified necessities for area families in need.
Children's Dental Health Month
Every year we travel to local schools to teach children about dental health. We have also given presentations at the Headwaters Science Center.
Give Kids a Smile
Every February, the Give Kids a Smile event takes place. This annual event started by the American Dental Association in 2003 provides free care to children under the age of 18. Division Dental Studio has volunteered for the event every year since we've been open and have hosted the event at our office for the last 2 years!
Sports/Music and Theater
Division Dental supports local school and community sports teams, music groups and theater with donations, adds in programs, and booster memberships. We are a proud sponsor of the Bemidji Youth Soccer Program and love to see our local children participate in so many life enhancing events!
