Team members of Phoenix Endodontic Group participated in the 2016 HopeFest event which took place April 15th-16th at CHASE Field in Phoenix. This annual event provides a wide range of sevices to the homeless and economically challenged members of our community. The Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation was asked to help deliver the dental services at HopeFest over a two day period.
“This was such a great and it took many wonderful volunteers to make it a success,” said Dr. Jacqueline S. Allen, CADSF Board President. “We were thankful to have dental teams come together to help get folks smiling again.” Allen continued, “Several team members from offices across the Valley volunteered over the two day period.” The following team members from Phoenix Endodontic Group participated: Dr. Jacqueline Allen (Clinic Floor Director), Dr. Susan Wood (Dental Triage), Dallas Hedges (Endodontic Lead), Roxann Naithani (Patient Registration Lead) Hanh Duong (Patient Exit), Savannah Allen (X-Ray) and Kevin Conroy (Event Director).
Dr. Allen also wished to thank members of the Phoenix Endodontic Group’s extended “family” for their amazing efforts: Kristen Kingsley (Event Coordinator), Sarah Tate (Event Coordinator), Linda Shirey (Volunteer Lounge) and Dr. Carol Ford (Dental Routing).
Highlights from the 2-day dental clinic include: $397,000 in free dental care delivered to 369 patients. CADSF was also able to provide dentures, root canals and crowns – these services were all provided for the first time ever at HopeFest.
Thanks to the Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation and all of the volunteers for making 2016 HopeFest a big success.
