As part of International Good Deeds Day Dr. Mariya Barnett of DannaSmile, spearheaded a health care initiative, in conjunction with the Dallas chapter of the Alpha Omega dental fraternity, designed to assist many adults and children in need of oral health home care essentials.
Dr. Barnett and other enthusiastic volunteers, including her fiancee, periodontist Dr. Andrew Barnett, gathered supplies and created over 1,000 oral health kits.
All of the oral health kits were donated to the nonprofit organization, Jewish Family Service, of Greater Dallas, and donated to their pantry where the kits will be distributed to families in need.
The mission of the Jewish Family Service, is “to provide professional, effective and affordable mental health and social services that promote lifelong self-sufficiency and well-being for anyone in need.”
