Rebuilding Smiles - Charity Work
Coolamon Dental’s Charity Work with Rebuilding Smiles
Our team at Coolamon Dental are proud to announce that we are participating in the Rebuilding Smiles program. Joining this initiative was an easy decision to make – the impact that domestic violence can have on a person can be truly devastating. We are passionate about bringing smiles to our own local community and offering our help to those in need in any way that we can.
- We are partnering with the government and other private organisations to support the victims of domestic violence.
- We are doing it in our own way, supporting victims and bringing their smiles back.
What is the Rebuilding Smiles program?
In recent years, domestic violence has become a more prominent topic on the national social agenda. Both the government and private organisations have launched victim aid services, which have a tremendous effect by drawing attention to this vital issue and attempting to minimise its impact and, ultimately, put an end to it completely.
With so many issues confronting victims, neglecting oral health ends up being the case, which can have serious consequences.
This is where we come in.
Broken, chipped, or missing teeth have a negative effect on the victims’ self-esteem and how they function in society.
For many patients that we helped, oral health was one of the main concerns to restore their confidence.
The dentists rebuilding smiles across WA
Dr Aron Lazaridis is only two years out of Dental School, but already determined to make a difference by giving back through the Australian Dental Health Foundation’s Rebuilding Smiles Program.
It was looking into how to help a pro bono case that Aron and the team at Coolamon Dental in Ellenbrook came across the Rebuilding Smiles program. “We made dentures for the patient but due to her jaw not really lending itself to dentures, the only real option we had was implants,” Aron says. “I spoke to the principal dentist here and Serena, our practice manager, about what we could do for this patient, and Serena found the Rebuilding Smiles program and informed me about it. We got the approval and through the program we managed to help the patient.”
