The Eastern Shore’s leading dental office donates $10,000 to two Queen Anne’s County non-profit organizations
The doctors and staff at Eastern Shore Dental Care are excited to announce that they’ve donated $5,000 each to the Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County and Happy Hats Maryland.
Part of the mission of Eastern Shore Dental Care is to give back to the community. The efforts from the team of employees at Eastern Shore Dental Care makes it possible for this to happen, so the doctors asked them to nominate worthy local charities to receive donations. After hearing about the nominees, the team selected the Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County and Happy Hats Maryland.
“Dr. Murphy and I could not be prouder to make a donation to two organizations that mean so much to our staff”, said Dr. Scott Billings, co-owner of Eastern Shore Dental Care. “It was incredibly moving to hear all the different charities and organizations our staff was passionate about – many of which already donate their time and resources to these organizations on a regular basis. The two organizations our staff selected are doing wonderful things for our community, and we hope that our donation will further their efforts.”
The Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County and Happy Hats Maryland were presented with their donation on June 4, 2019.
This announcement follows the recent success of Eastern Shore Dental Care’s Smiles from the Heart event in which they treated a record breaking 171 patients in our community providing a total of over $66,000 in free dentistry.
“For over 30 years, we’ve been committed to providing a lifetime of extraordinary care to our patients and giving back to our community”, added Dr. Murphy. “It’s something that means a lot, not only to myself and Dr. Billings, but to our entire staff. It brings us a lot of joy and happiness to be able to support the people who have supported us over the years, and as we continue to grow, our ultimate goal is to give back even more to this community.”
