Over the course of the COVID-19 Pandemic I have been able to hear and witness the generous donations and accommodations that this dental office has set forth in our community during these hard times. Cumming Dental Smiles has gone above and beyond in offering their services and time to help the community with small gestures that go a long way.
When the Pandemic first started Cumming Dental Smiles hand packaged over 100 care packages and delivered them to a local outreach to be distributed to the needy and elderly when stores were closed and it was not safe to be out and about. These care packages were made up of water, snacks, and canned goods to keep them healthy during those hard times.
Not stopping there they then donated ear savers to our frontline workers at the local Forsyth hospitals so that during the long hours and hectic days they would be experiencing due to the pandemic they could comfortably wear those already uncomfortable respirators and masks. They also donated gloves and masks to surrounding subdivisions to help prevent the spreading of COVID-19 during the pandemic.
During this time they also made sure anybody in need of dental care while all the offices were mandated close still had access to doctor care. Patients were able to do virtual consults at no charge so that pain and infections were not left unattended to. They ended up doing over 100 free consultations helping so many people in the Forsyth Community.
These are just a few of the amazing ways this small dental practice in our community has reached out and went above and beyond to really impact our citizens during the pandemic.
Cumming Dental Smiles has not only supported our community during the Pandemic but all year round they dedicate their time to helping others within our community. They have partnered with Smiles for Kids to bring a day of free dental care to children in the community who don’t usually have access to the care they need, They also participated in Freedom Day for Veterans and family members where they did complimentary exams, x-rays and treatment for our local veterans and their immediate family. They do a yearly free dentistry day to reach out within the community to people who need dental care but may not have the funds to do the treatment. They also are connected with the Dental Lifeline Network who provides patients who are in need of dental treatment and are limited in funds.
On top of helping during the COVID-19 pandemic with all their kind gestures and community involved activities they also yearly participate in other programs that not only help our community but others around our country such as Toys for Tots and a Halloween Candy Buy Back to send candy to our troops overseas. Cumming Dental Smiles is a great example in my opinion of how all of our small businesses can with just a small amount of time and effort really make a difference in the lives of our community members.
Cumming Dental Smiles under the leadership of Dr.Gudipati provided free X rays , exam, extraction or filling service for our veterans. Freedom Day USA is America’s Largest Military Thank You Event! One day each year, businesses say “Thank You” by providing a token of appreciation (Free Services, Free Gifts, Special Offers and More) to Active Military and their Immediate Family and to Veterans who visit their business on event day. This is our way of showing you how grateful we are for your service and for the sacrifices you have made for our freedom. In fact, Freedom Day USA is a “DAY OF FREE, FOR A LIFETIME OF FREEDOM!”
United States Marine corps runs this great campaign which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
We really appreciate the turnout of donations from our patients, team members and neighbors.
We chose to do Toys For Tots Campaign as it is a very effective program delivery and fiscal responsibility is top rated.
We are very proud to be part of this campaign in Cumming as it plays an important role in the development of our children who are our most valuable resource.
Toys for Tots at Cumming Dental Smiles made a small contribution to better our community and also bring Joy and happiness to the children in need.
Proud to be a part of Chamber of Commerce ” Breaking Ground On New Building”.
The Event happened on Thursday December 19th 2019 at 212 Webb Street, Cumming, Ga.
We are excited for the future home of the chamber here in the heart of Cumming.
Dr. Praveen Gudipati, dentist at Cumming Dental Smiles, recently accepted candy donations for the “Halloween Candy Buy Back”. His inspiration for participating this Halloween was due to his two beautiful daughters in elementary school. “I see that my kids collect more candy than they could eat or should I let them eat! Out of necessity to take too much candy out of their diet and to do some good with the candy, I found this awesome charity organization called Halloween Candy Buy Back,” stated Dr. Gudipati.
Halloween Candy Buy Back encourages kids around America to donate their Halloween candy to give to troops overseas. Two organizations that will be receiving the donations from our office are Move America Forward and Operation Shoebox. This charitable event is an awesome way to support our troops and reduce the consumption of sugars by our children. Cumming Dental Smiles collected over 350 pounds of candy from local schools, subdivisions, and neighbors.
This charitable event also allowed the team to teach their children of the sacrifices the troops make for our freedom in America. In addition, the Cumming Dental Smiles team encouraged participants to write letters to the American troops. Troops stationed outside of the United States will receive the candy along with the letters during Christmas time. The team at Cumming Dental Smiles hopes this gives the troops a small reminder of home this festive season and shows how much we appreciate them for continuously keeping us safe.
Blessings in a Backpack is a program that provides food for the elementary and middle school children who otherwise would go hungry on the weekend. The children are given a backpack of food to take home each weekend during the school year.
A local chapter of the organization was started by Lambert High School students and we did our first drive on 09/19/19 at Sharon Elementary School with my kids. We are very happy to help the Blessings in a Backpack and we will do more every month and year. Please drop off at our office any of these items and we will take it to the School to distribute the food.
