Last month we shared how to proper dental hygiene can improve your overall health and wellbeing. This idea of total body health has helped our team to set goals and work alongside our patients in staying healthy from head to toe.


As a way to commit to total body health in 2013, our team has decided to run the St. Jude Country Music Half Marathon this April. In the past, we’ve enjoyed watching marathoners and half-marathoners run by our offices as they head down the home stretch of their runs. If you’ve never cheered on runners for the Country Music Marathon, it’s quite the spectacle. But this year, we thought, “What better way to stay healthy from head to toe than by running it ourselves?”

What started out as an idea turned into reality after we did a little more research…

As we were checking out the details, we learned that giving back is a big part of the Country Music Half Marathon. The Country Music Marathon has partnered with St. Jude’s to allow participants to create St. Jude Heroes Teams as a way to improve the treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its groundbreaking research.

After working alongside patients and downtown residents to collect over 1,000 canned goods for Second Harvest Food Bank at the end of 2012, we realized that registering our team was a no brainer!

St. Jude Along with our goal of running the half marathon, we’re launching a Downtown Dental Heroes Team to raise funds to support St. Jude’s lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children.


Join us in giving back and staying healthy from head to toe…

We we’re so grateful for our friends and patients supporting Second Harvest Food Bank back in November and December. Because you love to help others as much as we do, we thought that this was the perfect opportunity to combine staying healthy with giving back.

We hope you’ll join us in training, running and raising money for the St. Jude’s children’s hospital. By joining the Downtown Dental Team, we can work together to raise thousands of dollars to help children in need, all while staying healthy and having fun along the way!
