Giving Back to The Community: Why It’s Important
Giving back to the community is not always easy, but it is always worth it. By bringing people together and working in harmony toward a single cause, we can begin to make the world a better place for all of us who share it. Here at Dentalook, we aim to accomplish exactly that. We do this by giving everyone that we meet a reason to smile. With a passion for enriching the well-being of our communities, Dentalook is proud to give back through events such as the Smiles on Us event that was recently held on June 11th. In this article, I will highlight some of the benefits of giving back to the community as well as what giving back means to us at Dentalook.
Why Giving Back to The Community is Important
Consider the last time that you did something helpful for someone else without any expectation of a reward in return. While you were helping them, how did you feel? Chances are that you felt happy and at peace knowing that you were making a difference and helping someone in need.
Finding a cause that you are passionate about is one of the greatest challenges on our paths to personal fulfillment. That’s why once you find your passion, it’s important to find ways to give back to your community by donating your time and resources to it. In fact, dedicating time, resources, and services to the enrichment of the community is one of the best ways to broaden your perception of the world around you. When you surround yourself with people who are dedicated to a common mission, you will feel a greater sense of purpose in your life. Knowing that your work is benefiting members of your community can help you feel more fulfilled and achieve personal growth.
Aside from helping you find a greater sense of purpose within your life, giving back to the community can benefit those around you. Furthermore, helping others can help you get to know your community better and identify what it needs to thrive. This can help you build relationships with the people around you as well as give you a greater insight into how to help your peers in bigger and better ways going forward. Donating time, resources, and services to those in need can greatly enrich their lives and leave a positive impact on your community members. In addition to all of this, when you help others, you can create a ripple effect and inspire them to pay it forward and do good for the people in their lives.
What Giving Back Means to Us
At Dentalook, we strive for excellence in everything that we do, including the enrichment and support of our communities. We believe that dental care should be accessible to everyone regardless of their current financial position. That’s why we host an annual event called Smiles on Us where one of our dental clinics opens up its doors to provide a free day of dental care to those in need. The services we perform during our Smiles on Us event include free cleaning, scaling, and polishing, diagnostic x-rays, metal-free fillings, and simple tooth extraction. Through our Smiles on Us events, we have donated over 120,000 dollars and had the opportunity to help 320 patients achieve beautiful smiles.
