Want Your PTO to Win $500?

Thank you vets Candy Drive 2012 PierceWANT TO WIN $500 FOR YOUR PTO?

 

 

Join Drs. Ali & Ali this year by supporting Wellesley Dental Group’s 6th annual Candy Drive to benefit U.S. Troops.

“Our goal is to encourage kids to give up their extra Halloween candy and send a little sweetness overseas. For our troops, who are so far away, M&Ms and the handwritten cards children send are a little treat that remind them of home,” said Dr. Femina Ali of Wellesley Dental Group.

All Wellesley Public schools are eligible to participate. The school that donates the most candy per child will win $500 to use at their PTO’s discretion.*

Wellesley Dental Group will kick-off the drive with a Halloween Costume party on October 30th  from 4-6 p.m. at their office (located at 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley, Mass.), with food, games, prizes and toothbrushes. Everyone is welcome. They will accept candy donations between Nov. 1 and Nov. 8 and will hold a press event on the 8th at 10 a.m., which is open to the community, before they send the candy off in a U-Haul. CarePacks, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to troops overseas, will package up the candy and cards. Principals, faculty, parents and students (with permission from their teachers of course) are welcome to attend.

 

To schedule a candy drop-off between November 1 and November 8 at Wellesley Dental Group, located at 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley, Mass., please call 781.237.9071 or e-mail smile@wellesleydentalgroup.com

*To ensure a fair competition the winner will be determined by the total weight of the candy donated divided by the total number of students attending each school. We are requesting the schools provide us with this information.  Read More here!

Thank You Wellesley Mother's Forum!

September 24th, 2013

The caring team at Wellesley Dental Group had a fun Saturday morning at the Wellesley Town Hall Greens, next to the Wellesley Post Office . We were the guest of Wellesley Mother's Forum. Mother's Forum is a non-profit organization and a member-led social and support group for Wellesley women with young children. Members are required to live in Wellesley or surrounding towns and have at least one child (or be currently expecting). The majority of their members have children between the ages of birth to eight years old.

Serving as the Smile Ambassadors for Wellesley and the surrounding towns this was a perfect way to educate the young kids about brushing and flossing. Events like this help motivate and encourage young children and their parents about being proactive for their dental health. While Dr. Femina Ali was helping demonstrate on our famous mascot, Christopher,with a giant toothbrush Dr. Ejaz Ali was giving balloons as prizes. Everyone that stopped for brushing lessons also got an Oral Stages toothbrush.

The kids also loved having pictures taken with our wonderful Tooth Fairy. It was a successful event and we cannot thank Wellesley Mother's Forum enough for including us. We were so happy to see all of our young smile ambassadors and teach them about the importance of maintaining good oral health. Thank you Wellesley Mother's Forum for being so proactive in the community!

We want to acknowledge the help of our friend Joanna Bandte who brought smiles to tons of children by doing feather extensions in their hair. Thank you Joanna!

Also, we want to give a big thank you to the event directors Diane Conway & Meryl Glassman and also to the Co-Presidents Sabreena Kropp & Meghan Thompson. What a fun community event, we can't wait for to participate again next year for the Fall Carnival! We are also looking forward to hosting our annual Candy Drive for the Wellesley Mother's Forum.
