Liverpool New York Dentist ~ Dr. Chris K. Pateras ~ Today's Dentistry
One Warm Coat-Winter 2016 It may have been a mild winter here in Central New York, but there are still many people that do not have the clothing to keep warm. We collected a huge box full of coats and they will be distrubuted to those in need.
Halloween 2015 We collected over 800 pounds of candy from our annual Halloween Candy Buy-back. This candy goes to Operation Gratitude and is included in care packages sent to our overseas troops. Just our small way of saying "Thank you for your service!"
Dec 2014-Jan 2015 Today's Dentistry participated in the One Warm Coat drive benefiting the Rescue Mission of CNY. We collect a total of 40+ coats that were immediately distributed to those in need right here in CNY.
November 3rd 2014 we will host our Halloween Candy Buyback in our office. Children are invited to "sell" us some of their Halloween candy for $1/pound (5 lb max per child). The Tooth Fairy will be in the house to meet with the children and take pictures. Each participating child will receive a goody bag and be entered into our raffle. All parents will be entered into a raffle as well. Our local Mason Lodge will be here creating Child ID cards with pictures and fingerprints, at no charge to each participant.
All candy collected will be sent to our troops overseas via Blue Star Moms and USO Fort Drum."
