Community Involvement – Copperas Cove, TX
Making a Difference
Fossum Dental Group hosted their 5th annual Community Dental Day in February 2017, treating 105 folks from surrounding communities who couldn’t afford basic dental care. We offered patients one service: cleaning, fillings, or extractions, and in many cases, we performed multiple services on patients both old and young. All for free. We could not have done this without the support of our gracious team and our community.
Donation Nation Blood Drive
Benchmark Family Dental and Scott and White Healthcare Blood Care Center partnered in July 2015 and April 2016 to host "Donation Nation," a company-wide blood drive throughout Central Texas. We offered oral cancer screening vouchers and other goodies to all donors. We are proud to give back to our community and were recognized with the 2015 Community Hero Award, Outstanding Corporate Blood Drive as well as an outstanding coordinator award.
Food for Families
Benchmark Family Dental has proudly supported Food for Families and the food pantry in Killeen since 2012. This is a one-day food drive that collects non-perishable food and monetary donations to fill the pantries and serve those in our communities that need it most. This year, Benchmark Family Dental collected 6,239 pounds of food for donation.
Oral Cancer Awareness Month
We are committed to educating our community about the risks of oral cancer and believe that early detection saves lives. Each April, MHFD hosts a free oral cancer screening event to spread awareness about this silent killer. Of the 43,250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. Early detection may save your life. Learn More.
