Patient Samantha Schatte and crew went on their annual dental safari to Zimbabwe over Thanksgiving. Post Oak Dental was honored to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste for their young patients at the Imvelo Dental Safari Clinic… We love being a part of this extraordinary humanitarian effort each year that brings much-needed dental health care and education to these adorable kids. Thanks, Samantha, for asking us to participate again this year!
Post Oak Dental was a proud sponsor of the Westside High School March-a-Thon in December. Friends and neighbors gathered along the streets and in the front yards of The Lakes of Parkway for a very special holiday treat! The Band paraded through the neighborhood playing musical favorites. Private lawn concerts along the route helped to raise money for the band’s spring trip to Disney!
Dr. Gowan’s wife, Whitney, was blessed to be a part of Chapelwood United Methodist Church’s global mission team in Maua, Kenya. As part of the team, she volunteered at the Maua Methodist Hospital, building an AIDS orphan home, helping the doctors and nurses in a deworming clinic and medical camp assisting with treatment and prescriptions. The team spent time with the ZOE Orphan Family unit that the church supports and brought them toys and art supplies. Post Oak Dental collected scrubs to be used by patients at the hospital and sent a supply of toothbrushes and toothpaste to give to the children. This was an incredible experience for all who volunteered in Kenya.
Dr. Gowan and the Post Oak Dental Team donated toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental supplies to “Smiles for Zimbabwe,” a volunteer effort led by Italian and Spanish dentists and other professionals, who conducted five free dental clinics and education for more than 2,600 patients in rural areas of Zimbabwe. One of our patient friends, Samantha Schatte, was one of the professional volunteers on this annual “dental safari.” Congratulations and great work!
