Among many of the ways Dr. TenBrook offers his service to the Cumberland and Salem Counties in New Jersey is through the Give Kids
A Smile! program held each February. During this month the entire dental community, both public and private sectores, comes together to ensure the delivery of care to thousands of under privileged children whom otherwise might not be able to afford or access care.
Services rendered include oral hygiene instruction, screanings, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments, stainless steel crowns and much more.
Volunteers work to ensure the program is fun and educational and that it gives many children a great first impression of visits to the dentists.
Doing Our Part
TenBrook Orthodontics donated free braces to J’Quan, who is a little Brother enrolled in the Adult School Based Program at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties.
“Growing up in Millville, it wasn’t likely that the average kid could get braces,” Dr. James TenBrook said. “My mother had to get a second job in order to afford them.”
TenBrook has a passion for helping disadvantaged kids and as the need comes, he evaluates it.
He has had people of influence such as teachers approach him regarding assisting children in need of orthodontic treatment, and he has been more than glad to provide the service.
J’Quan’s mother, Deanna, added, “What a blessing this is. If J’Quan wasn’t in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, this wouldn’t have happened.”
J’Quan is the third little brother to receive braces on behalf of TenBrook Orthodontics.
