Tour de Pier Recap

Dr. Calleros was back at it again, sponsoring two bikes at the 4th Annual Tour de Pier.  The Tour de Pier is a fundraising event benefiting cancer charities held at the Manhattan Beach Pier. She was able to rally up four Calleros Dental team members, Dr. Geyer, Jennifer, Desirae, and Trey to participate with her, along with some patients and friends to complete the 10 person team.

Over 400 bikes and 1500 cyclist united together in the fight against cancer, raising over $1 million dollars, surpassing the 2016 goal.  The team really enjoyed being a part of such an unique fundraising event and look forward to making the Tour de Pier a yearly tradition.

 

In the Community – El Segundo 5K Recap

Calleros Dental is a proud sponsor of the El Segundo Run for Education. We not only sponsor the event, we participate in the run and fitness expo as well.  It is fun to get out there with our community and see many of our patients supporting the cause and staying healthy!  We are happy to help the foundation reach their goal of $80,000.00 towards local education.

Entering its 23rd consecutive year, the Run continues to be not only a major fundraiser for El Segundo’s K-12 public schools, but also one of the more unique USATF certified road courses in Southern California.  The family-friendly event regularly sees a healthy turnout from both the local South Bay and surrounding communities.

With new changes in how the State determines school funding, our sponsorship is vital to the permanent underfunding the school district now faces. By supporting eduction at the local level we have an unique opportunity to be a positive influence on today’s young minds and tomorrow’s future leadership. We are contributing directly to the quality of education in the local school district, and more importantly, to our most valuable resource- our teachers and children!

World Kindness Day – Random Acts of Dentistry

We celebrated World Kindness Day one day early with Random Acts of Dentistry, a spin-off of our Random Acts of Hygiene.  We were able to provide Anthony, our 1st Random Acts of Hygiene patient, with some much needed dental treatment. He is so very grateful and excited about his dental health and plans on doing what he can to maintain good oral health.  It is awesome to be a part of changing someone’s life and we look forward to out next Random Acts patient.

Random Acts of Hygiene – Anthony

Today we kicked off our Random Acts of Hygiene.  The dental industry is unique in that we offer a service that only trained and licensed individuals can give. Knowing we are the only ones that can provide dental treatment, we wanted to use our special skills to help others.  So we are seeking out random individuals who are in need of dental treatment and simply providing them with professional hygiene services at no cost.

First up was Anthony.  He was all smiles by the end of his appointment.  He was truly thankful and honored to be a part of Random Acts of Hygiene.  It is really an awesome feeling to know we were able to help Anthony not only improve his oral health, but his overall health as well!

Community Service Day

Unknown

Calleros Dental is committed to giving back to the community.  In honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we provided over $15,000 of dental services to women and children from the 1736 Family Crisis Center this past Friday.  Since 1972, 1736 Family Crisis Center has been responding to the growing needs of victims of domestic violence, runaway and homeless youth, homeless families, unemployed adults and youth, and other low-income community members in need of assistance.

It was our pleasure to provide these much needed dental services and hope we did our small part in helping these families gain confidence to get back on their feet and live the lives they deserve.

Thank you to the volunteers and a special thank you to Katt and Alison for joining us last minute and helping make this day happen.
