SPONSORED CHARITIES

We Proudly Support

Dr. Ghatnekar has participates in the dental care of United States Olympic Elite Level Athletes. Our office gives complimentary examinations, x-rays and cleanings to members of various Olympic teams including water polo, bobsled, cycling, wrestling, swim, badminton, rowing and softball. We are proud of our athletes and proud of our participation in their healthcare. See who some of our athletes are on our Facebook page.

We proudly support the Arts in Orange County. Several members of the South Coast Symphony are our patients, and we choose to recognize their expertise and talents by supporting their work with the South Coast Symphony. Check out their website and attend a local event! Maybe we’ll see you there!

Think Pink! We support the American Cancer Society’s Fight Against Breast Cancer. As a Team, we participated in the Susan G. Komen 5K Walk/Run in Newport Beach on September 27th, 2009. We contributed both monetarily and by slogging (slow jogging) and walking our ways to the finish line. We hope to make this an annual Team event.

Dr. Ghatnekar also participates in our Dental Distributor’s efforts to support Breast Cancer Research by buying “Pink” products for our office. You may have noticed our pink suction tips or other pink products during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our distributor then donates a percentage of these sales directly to the American Cancer Society.

Smile Big! “Smiles for Life” and “Teammates for Kids” both contribute to children all across America who have physical disabilities. Half of our support goes to these Teams, and half goes to a Local Children’s Charity of our choice. Every other year we offer whitening trays and bleaching materials to our patients in exchange for a donation to “Smiles For Life”. Discus Dental donates all of the bleaching materials, and our office donates the whitening trays so that 100% of your payment goes directly to these children’s charities. Watch for our announcement on when you can help the children through our office, and benefit with whiter teeth for yourself or as a gift to a friend.

The Welcome INN program provides meals, toiletries, sleeping bags blankets, fresh socks and clothing to the local needy, homeless and working poor in the South Orange County area and has for the past 20 years. Dr.Ghatnekar is filled with joy to be able to provide the much needed dental hygiene items. Visit their webpage

We also support the “2nd Harvest Food Bank of Orange County”, the “Indian Christian Ministry” through Vineyard Community Church and a primary school in Africa at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. We donate the money we collect from our Recycle efforts to this children’s school. We also work with charity organizations such as Families Forward in Irvine and Global Dental Brigades.

We hope that you are as excited as we are to help others find a better tomorrow through Education, Communication and Friendship.
