Our Community

Watch for us at community events! We took part in the Back to School Bash at Town & Country in Wilder that was hosted by NKy Family Magazine. When you see us at community events, stop by to say "Hi" and pick up some dental resources for parents and kids. You might get a new toothbrush and a chance to win a prize!

The Pediatric Dental Garden participated as a sponsor at the 25th Annual Celebrity Softball Classic in July at Florence Freedom Ballpark. The event featured current and former athletes with guest appearances by Bengals and Reds players and other local celebrities. Festivities included a skydiver presenting the flag during the national anthem, an autograph session and a Rossi fireworks display. Cincinnati Reds pitcher Curtis Partch signed autographs in our booth! We were proud to be part of an event that benefitted Teen Response, a program that provides services for at-risk adolescents by building positive self-esteem, leadership skills and community involvement.

The Pediatric Dental Garden sponsored a booth with help from the International Student and Business societies at the Thomas More College Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society. We made pudding "dirt" cups to sell (get it?...from the garden), Bands and DJs provided entertainment all night and there was lots of silliness to keep everyone engaged. Fun for a great cause!
