The Dental Center of South Bend Pediatric

The staff of The Dental Center South Bend Pedo proudly wearing their “Stand For Something” t-shirts & joined by the Tooth Fairy raise awareness and donations for children with Cerebral Palsy. So far they have raised over $1,000 for “vision activated” talking computers that allows a child to speak what has in the past been trapped in their mind but they could not physically express. This very important cause is their heartfelt effort to support a member of the office’s staff whose child has Cerebral Palsy.
