We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Jacqueline Allen, Phoenix Endodontic Group has been awarded the 2018 Health Care Hero Award by the Phoenix Business Journal in the dental category. Dr. Allen was recognized for her contributions as a founding member of the Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation, which was established in 2011 and sponsors an annual program called the Arizona Dental Mission of Mercy (AZMOM). The program is a two-day free dental clinic open to anyone.
“After each event, I am in awe that in a two-day period the work we do has such an immediate positive impact on the lives of so many people,” Dr. Allen said. “It is extremely satisfying to know that we played a part in eliminating pain, infection and oral disease in close to 2,000 people at one event. Additionally, CADSF is now being asked to help set up smaller events in other parts of the state — that has always been a part of our vision.” Read more about the recognition on Phoenix Business Journal.
Watch this compelling story to find out what motivates Dr. Allen to participate not only in the Arizona Mission of Mercy and with Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation, but also Mission of Mercy Dental events around the country. She is definitely our Health Care Hero and we are so proud of her to receive this well deserved recognition.
