‘Give a Grin’
Patients and friends,
Friday, June 25th is our 6th Annual Give a Grin Fundraiser!!!
July 3rd holds a special place in my heart--the birthday of a beautiful soul and one of my closest friends, Betsy Burton. She passed away 13 years ago, but during her too short life as a teacher, she touched the lives of countless children, showed them hope, joy and success and made their lives better in countless ways. As we have done for the past five years, we are holding a special event in her honor. Friday, June 25th, Complete Health Dentistry of Portland will donate all dental fees on that day in her memory. The proceeds will go to two foundations: The Dental Foundation of Oregon (https://www.smileonoregon.org) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (https://afsp.org). The DFO runs the Tooth Taxi, a mobile dental van which spends the school year caring for children in need throughout the state of Oregon. The AFSP is the nation’s leading organization providing awareness, support and help for those struggling with mental health, survivors and those who have lost loved ones to suicide. I realize that there is so much going on in the world right now and so many needs pulling us from all directions and so many worthy causes, but I hope you will find out more about each of these groups. And, even if you cannot come see us Friday, I hope that you will consider helping one or both of these causes. You will be able to send a check made out to either charity or call us with a credit card. We will be running a donation campaign through Facebook as well. (Dr. David J. Dowsett's Complete Health Dentistry of Portland) We will be accepting donations the entire month of July.
What could be better than giving a smile to a child or saving a life? Thanks and be well. PS- We have 3 appointments available for hygiene only. Please call us ASAP to reserve your spot. Kim and Tia will be doing a lab experiment at noon. Bring your kiddo’s to watch this live!

Going beyond the mouth, we will be promoting healthy lifestyle choices. Judy is serving up carrot fries along with zucchini muffins and Kym will be providing mini workshops on the benefits of CBD in dentistry and for a healthy lifestyle. Samples will be available!!!
