We are passionate about our community at South Hill Dental and we are proud to be part of life in Puyallup for our patients. One way in which we contribute to our local community is through our annual Dental Day initiative, which we have been running since 2009. Now in its tenth year, the free Dental Day has continued to grow, allowing us to help more and more people. We are happy to have given over half a million dollars' worth of free dental treatment to 450 patients so far. Read on to find out why we organise this annual event and how it benefits our community.
