At Mortenson Dental Partners, we believe in giving back to our communities in meaningful ways. Each office and Doctor has the freedom to donate to causes that are near and dear to their office. This can range from taking on pro bono cases to donating to local non-profits and supporting the efforts of patients. We also help support our doctors who choose to participate in mission trips to donate free dentistry.
We also make philanthropy a core focus of our corporate strategy and commit to supporting our communities at a corporate level. We encourage all of our offices to participate in the Crown Council’s Smiles for Life fundraising campaign each year to raise funds to donate within the local community. In 2014 we took our philanthropic activities to an international level by partnering with WaterStep to deliver a water purification system to a village in Africa.
Mortenson Dental Partners hosts various days of free dentistry to the public. Some regions and partners host the free day of dentistry through their own charitable foundation and others participate through Mortenson Gives. Either way, we are proud to offer a helping hand to those in need.
We believe that not only should we give back to the communities that surround us, but also to the team members who make us who we are. We offer scholarship opportunities to our team members and their children for post-secondary education as well as a team member crisis relief fund to help team members in times of crisis.
At Mortenson Dental Partners, we know that times of crisis are hard to navigate. That is why, through the Mortenson Charitable Foundation, we offer financial support to team members that find themselves in a time of crisis. Our Team Members take care of each other by donating to the relief fund through payroll deductions through out the year. This fund has helped families relocate after devastating fires, team members leave abusive situations and to make the holidays a little brighter for families that need assistance buying gifts or a holiday meal.
It is invaluable to be able to help take care of our team members and our communities. We owe who we are today and where we are today to the support of our team members, our patients and the communities that surround us. Check out a few pictures of our charitable endeavors below…
