Community Outreach

At The Dental Center of La Porte we are all about helping people have beautiful healthy smiles and the benefits they bring. We are dedicated to helping smiles in the community and are always looking for ways to participate in local events, health fairs and other outreach programs.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and The Dental Center of Indiana teams are already gearing up!

 
We are proud of our on-going commitment for helping children throughout Michiana have a healthy smile and honored that these efforts have been recognized as an America’s ToothFairy ‘Practice of Distinction’. 

We are eager to give back and help bring toothbrushes, toothpaste and other essential oral care supplies to kids in need through the America’s ToothFairy program.

America's ToothFairy Practice of Distinction

The Dental Center of La Porte is passionate about children’s dental health and our local community. We are continuously looking for ways to give back. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and we are proud to participate in the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program. We have worked with local high schools to offer college scholarships to graduates and provide students with important information on maintaining proper oral health. Each year we sponsor various community events, host drives for Toys for Tots and provide dental health supplies where needed. The Dental Center of La Porte offers free resources to local organizations and community members including educational materials and oral health screenings.

The Dental Center of Indiana - Employee PhotoWe don’t just support the people of La Porte, we support the animals too!  We have partnered with the Potawatomi Zoo to care for the oral health of their furry family.  Our dentists have performed root canals, extractions and cleaned the teeth of leopards, river otters and more. Click here to visit our blog for more information.
