On October 3, we celebrated World Dentist Day at all Swiss Dental Services Clinics.
To celebrate, Swiss Dental Services presented their dentists with a personalized surgery cap bearing the company's logo and a card with a thanks and motivation message.
The offer was appreciated by those who “take care of Swiss Dental Services‘ patients smile, daily”.
With this initiative, the company intends to continue to bring smiles to the world, using expert professionals in oral rehabilitation to preserve the oral health of its patients.
Everyday we welcome and listen to hundreds of patients at our clinics, and those who contact us looking for a solution for their smile.
But Swiss Dental Services decided that much had yet to be done, as there are still people who for some or several reasons hold back on seeking help and do not come to our clinics.
Determined to take action to combat fears, doubts, disability, ignorance and even insecurity, the company reached out to these people with community actions in shopping malls and supermarkets across the country. Our employees were present and ready to explain the services and solutions available at Swiss Dental Services, as well as answer doubts and offer surprises.
The goal was to bring oral health to those who need or want to take the first step to taking care of theirs; a goal successfully met with a number of people already having taken the right steps towards smiling again!
Swiss Dental Services, in collaboration with Kin Laboratories, handed out 100 oral hygiene kits to Refood beneficiaries at the Foz do Douro and Maia hubs. The idea came about in June as part of World Blood Donor Day. Swiss Dental Services pledged to help a charity by donating 1 oral hygiene kit to people in need for every membership signed to the Premium Dental Card throughout the month. Refood beneficiaries were chosen to receive this aid. Swiss Dental Services assembled the oral hygiene kits on July 25 and went to the Refood hubs to deliver them to the recipients. Swiss Dental Services hopes the gesture will give Refood's users the opportunity to look after their oral health, which in such cases is not always seen as a priority.
Refood is an institution that collects surplus meals from restaurants, hotels and bakeries, among other establishments. It allocates them to underprivileged families, referenced by local charities, delivering meals to households and taking into account specificities such as allergies, diabetes, cholesterol, preferences and the foods available for this purpose.
Filomena Machado, one of the members responsible for Refood's volunteer teams, welcomed the Swiss Dental Services team at the association's premises and explained the dynamics and logistics inherent to the meal collection and delivery process. The kits were received with surprise and pleasure from the beneficiaries, especially the children, who the team had the opportunity to meet. Refood is a commendable project that Swiss Dental Services and Kin had the opportunity to learn about and collaborate with more closely. Like Swiss Dental Services, Refood aims to preserve the health and well-being of its beneficiaries by keeping smiles on the faces of all those it helps!
