At Associates in Periodontics, we enjoy not only providing our patients with exceptional periodontal care, but also giving back to the Burrlington and Barre communities whenever possible. Our team recently volunteered at the Special Olympics, providing free dental checkups and oral hygiene instructions at the Special Smiles tent. Dental hygienists used stuffed animals to demonstrate the best strategies for brushing and flossing, and all athletes were provided with an electric tooth brush and floss after their appointment. Dr. Shuman, Dr. Kolesar and Dr. Halliday all participated in the event, along with Nancy, Heather and Helen from our team. There were many smiles at the Special Smiles tent—our team had a great time participating in the event!
