The Centre de Santé Dentaire Dr. Thu Nguyen believes it is important to give back to our community. Dr. Thu Nguyen and her team have supported causes and organizations that benefit the public and raise awareness for the better of the people.
Every year, the Centre de Santé Dentaire Dr. Thu Nguyen participates in fundraising events for organizations that support various causes as well as taking initiative in donating to people in need. Here is a list of past events and partners:
LEUCAN, an association for children with cancer that promotes the recovery and well-being of cancer-stricken children and supports their families by providing distinctive and tailored services and assistance through every stage of cancer and its side-effects.
The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society of Canada, whose mission is to end multiple sclerosis and empower all Canadians affected by the disease. Every spring, the team at the Centre de Santé Dentaire Dr. Thu Nguyen participates in the MS Walk, which amassed $8 million and 30,000 people in 2018.
The Club Lions Beauharnois: a group of volunteers that aid people with visual, auditory and physical disabilities, as well as people with diabetes and autism.
Food & toy drive: During the holidays, Dre Thu Nguyen partners with Châteauguay & Kahnawake food banks to collect non-perishable food items, as well as collecting toys for the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
Halloween Candy Buy-Back event: Every Halloween, the clinic hosts a candy buy-back event where children are rewarded for returning their candies in exchange for pocket money and a raffle ticket. This raises awareness to kids about dental hygiene and offers them an alternative to cavity-causing candies.
The Smile Project: a contest that gives a lucky winner, who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources, to have the opportunity to have their smile and life changed.
