Community Involvement

Dr. Johnson has always shared his love for Star Wars with others. That is why he again reserved an entire theater for the premiere night of the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. He invited the team, his friends, family, patients, colleagues, those involved in the Big Brother Big Sister program and other ticket winners to enjoy the first showing of the movie on the Ultra Screen. His son James was finally old enough to attend this year!

Some attendees dressed as Star Wars characters and Dr. Johnson even rocked his R2D2 suit jacket. Dr. Johnson said that this was definitely his favorite of the latest movies, so he was very glad to be one of the first to see it! Until the next Star Wars event – May the Force be with you!

Our Christmas party was so much fun this year! 🎄 We had a photo booth, ate, played games (including spit on your neighbor and heads or tails) and had a white elephant exchange. So many laughs and such a great time!

Topping the list of white elephant gifts included a screaming goat, a stocking wine purse, a creepy doll, a bad floral arrangement and a toilet paper gun! We can’t wait until next year to see what white elephant gifts make it back to the party!

Kudos to the Crooked Pint for their hospitality! 😀

We had SO much fun helping The Great North Pole make the holidays a time of laughter and love for the nearly 900 families they will be serving this year! 😀💙🎄 Liz and Danielle “shopped” 🎁 for families, Danielle, Jacque and Allie spent time helping dispatch deliveries to families and Dr. Johnson and his family got to “play” Santa and actually deliver goods to families! 🎅

The Great North Pole is a 100% volunteer run organization serving Cass and Clay counties. During the 2019 “Week of Giving”, they had over 1750 volunteer opportunities!

This year we went all out in preparation for Halloween!

Our Patient Care Coordinator, Nicki, used her mad crafting skills and made custom pumpkins to greet our patients in the waiting room!

“Fangs” for Your Visit, Trick or Teeth and Will Clean Teeth for Candy were our favorites! 👍

We also created a “Super Tooth Fairy” for the Cook Endodontics pumpkin contest! 🎃

 

And…..we had a costume contest for our team! There were so many great costumes, but Allie, one of our Hygienists, won (by Facebook vote) with her “Operation” costume (bottom right picture)!
