Being active in the community is our way of giving back to the people who have made Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill flourish. It is our honor to improve the smiles of children in our community, and we love giving back at every opportunity.
Close to Home
Many children may recognize us from our visits to local preschools. Each year, more than 1,000 kids get to learn about healthy foods, “thumbs down” foods, and good home care. Our trusty sidekick Dudley the Dinosaur is there to help us demonstrate tooth-brushing techniques. And nobody ever leaves empty-handed: each child is given a goody bag with a toothbrush, sticker, and informative dental information for their parents.
Each Halloween we participate in Trunk or Treat, in downtown Martinez. Our staff, dressed in costume, are there to provide information and treats — healthy, of course!
Supporting Our World Community
For the past 30 years, Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill has sponsored children from various countries through World Vision. Currently, we are sponsoring six children from the countries of Tanzania, India, Brazil, Kenya, Haiti, and Peru.
In addition to monetary donations, our doctors volunteer their time during mission trips, during which they provide dental care to underserved children in countries that have great need. Our most recent trips have been to Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
