Rochester Hills Dentist Treats Local Children During National Give Kids a Smile! Day

More than thirty local children received free dental treatment on Friday, February 4that the office of Dr. Ronald Herbst, D.D.S., who volunteered his services as part of “Give Kids a Smile!” Day.  Dr. Herbst explains, “Our practice has been part of the Rochester Community since 1984 and we understand how difficult it is for many families, especially in this tough economy to receive the care they need. Health services like dentistry are very important to the overall wellness of our children and we are pleased that we can help to make a difference.   My dental team is an inspiration to me.  They give so much of themselves all through the year.  When the chance presents itself to give back they are 100% on board.  Our “goal” for the year is to give back to the community in a way that inspires hope.  This is our third year participating in this great program and a one-day effort obviously isn’t going to solve the problems, but it highlights the growing needs of our families in our own backyard.  Our mission is to not only help these kids, but to inspire others to get involved.  It all comes down to giving HOPE for a better tomorrow.”  

Dr. Herbst and his entire dental team provided complete dental care ranging from preventative, fillings, sealants, extractions, root canals, and education to children who otherwise may have gone without.  The office worked with Mr. Behrmann of North Hill Elementary, Rochester Area Neighborhood House, Grace Centers of Hope and Oakland County Moms to locate children in need of dental care. 

More than 290 Michigan dentists participated in Give Kids a Smile! events across the state on Friday.  An estimated 155,000 at-risk Michigan children have been served by “Give Kids a Smile!” since its inception in 2003. 

Supporters of “Give Kids a Smile!” include:  American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Colgate, Henry Schein Dental, Michigan Association of United Ways, Head Start Association, Boys & Girls Clubs and local dental societies.

Dr. Herbst and his team are already preparing for the next Give Kids a Smile! Day in February of 2012.   His office is located at 1460 Walton Blvd., Ste. #205 Rochester Hills, MI (248-651-0897).
