AboutFace is thrilled to have Dental Choice on board as a philanthropic partner by making AboutFace their annual charity of choice. The philanthropic partnership includes the implementation of an Employee Engagement Program through which employees volunteer their time and raise funds for AboutFace. “An employee engagement program enriches the work-life experience. It ties us together as co-workers on a deeper level and in a more meaningful way. We are happy to raise money and give of our time for such a worthy cause.” says Dr. Hans Herchen, owner of the Alberta based chain of clinics.
As part of their Employee Engagement Program, the Dental Choice team participated in the Leap of Faith event organized by AboutFace. They raised over $10,000 with Dr. Herchen personally topping up the pledges for his team to be sure that each met the $1,000 goal and was eligible to ‘take the leap’. The Dental Choice team will run other fundraising initiatives throughout the year. “It’s a great way to do team building while also benefiting a worthy cause,” says Angela Wong, Marketing Coordinator for Dental Choice. “It makes sense for us to partner with AboutFace as dental issues can be such an important consideration for individuals with facial differences,” adds Herchen.
Dental Choice is also the Premier Sponsor of Alberta Camp Trailblazers. By funding the Alberta camp they are providing the opportunity for 10 youths from Alberta to learn the life skills and leadership skills that will enable them to reach their full potentials.
Clearly, the Dental Choice motto to “provide compassionate care” is not limited to the dental chair. Welcome on board Dental Choice!
