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.

WMF Truck Day and Baby Food Drive benefitting the Massachusetts Children's Fund
Postponed to Saturday, May 15th, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm
Sprague School parking lot, 401 School St, Wellesley
If you cannot make the event, Wellesley Dental Group is accepting donations and will bring them to the event. Our address is 5 Seaward Road, Wellesley - we're open 8 to 5 Mon - Thursday, and on Friday, 9 am to 1 pm. THANK YOU!
Come see some of your children's favorite trucks and make a difference in the lives of hungry children through the state at the same time! Last year the WMF raised almost $2,500 and collected over 3,000 jars of baby food and cans of formula. We hope you'll join us again this year! Simply bring $5 per child for admission and any unopened baby food or formula you'd like to donate to the event. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Massachusetts Children's Fund. This is the perfect way to teach your children the value of giving back to the larger community at an event set up just for them. Last year they had fifteen different kinds of vehicles -- ranging from fire trucks to construction trucks to police cars to limousines to ambulances to bookmobiles -- this year they're expecting even more!
The Massachusetts Children's Fund is a non-profit organization devoted to the sole purpose of providing baby food and supplies to children in Massachusetts. Over 100,000 families with children -- many with infants -- sought food assistance last year alone. You can make a difference by taking part in our event and getting the entire family involved! For more information on the Massachusetts Children's Fund, visit their website at www.machildrensfund.com.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and participation in what we hope will be a fun-filled and memorable time for all! Please spread the word to your friends and family and bring them with you. This event is open to all!
