Richmond Community Page
Morrison Dental Group is committed to providing excellent service, while also being an active member in our community. There are many events we take part in throughout the year in the Richmond area. Below you will find just a few of the events we participate in. Please see our Facebook page for even more photos!
Smiles for Heroes
Smiles for Heroes is a free day of dental care for veterans in the surrounding area that do not have dental insurance. Doctors, hygienists, assistants, and administrative staff from around the community volunteer their time and talent for this event. 2017 was our first year doing this event in our Williamsburg and Norge locations and we look forward to doing this in other MDG locations in upcoming years.
Give Kids a Smile
Give Kids a Smile is a national event hosted by the ADA every year. We take part in the Richmond area event which provides much needed free dental care to Medicaid eligible children ages 18 and below. We host the event in our Norge office and surrounding offices volunteer their staff and resources to make this day possible. This day spreads laughter and beautiful smiles to children in the Richmond community.
Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Every year in April, Morrison Dental Group celebrates Oral Cancer Awareness month. During this month, our Richmond office decorates in red to spread awareness and raise money for Oral Cancer research. We also promote oral cancer screenings which are done during every hygiene care appointment throughout the year.
Breast Cancer Awareness Week
Every year during the month of October, our Richmond office goes pink for Breast Cancer awareness for one week! Employees wear their best and brightest, and we host a raffle for any patients who come in wearing pink. We also have challenges and giveaways, and usually end the week with a doctor or two sporting their best pink tutus!
Each Spring, Dr. Morrison and our other Richmond office doctors take an afternoon to visit schools in the Richmond area and teach elementary aged children about oral health. Kids learn how to properly brush their teeth and play games with the doctors. We also do oral screenings for schools and give educational materials to children and their families.
