Dedicated to making a difference in the community
Trident Endo and RCT Endodontics have carried on the philanthropic tradition with our third annual Save-a-Smile Day. Since its inception in 2018, our teams have treated 65 patients. The total cost of the treatments is $126,580.
On Saturday, May 15th, 2021, our team of endodontists, dental assistants, and staff volunteered to donate root canal treatments to adults and children who would have most likely lost their permanent tooth due to inaccessibility and financial constraints. We're still working hard to save as many natural teeth as possible! and more ecstatic than ever!
This year, we collaborated with other organizations and dentists across Maryland to raise awareness about the importance of preventative dental care, as well as to provide endodontic treatments to low-income residents so that they can work and support their families.
