Cary Family Dental Event Provides Free Care to Over 150 Patients

Cary, N.C. – Hundreds lined up outside Cary Family Dental on Saturday, April 22, as part of the dental practice’s Sixth Annual Dentistry From The Heart event. At the end of the day, Dr. Allan Acton and a team of dentists, staff and volunteers provided approximately $47,000 in free dental care to 165 adults.

This year’s event involved eight volunteer dentists who performed 76 cleanings, 53 extractions and 36 fillings for adults with a valid ID.

The event was promoted through community calendars, press releases, media interviews, outreach to local churches and nonprofits, and through Cary Family Dental’s own office, website and social media channels. The practice’s patients generously donated $3,775 to help offset costs.

Although people started being processed at 7 a.m., some had arrived the night before. Throughout the day they were treated to refreshments from Starbucks, City Barbeque and Ruckus pizza, as well as entertainment from a local musician.

“This was our best Dentistry From The Heart event in the past six years,” said Dr. Acton. “To have an event like this to serve 165 people with over 100 volunteers takes a Herculean effort. I could not be prouder to be part of a team that can pull this event off. I hope in some small way it helps the lives of those we saw that day.”

Over the six years Cary Family Dental has been holding this local day of service, more than 900 adults have received more than $300,000 in free care.

Cary Family Dental Donates to the American Heart Association

CARY, NC – March 28, 2016 – Today Cary Family Dental donated $5000 to the American Heart Association. The American Heart Association helps millions of people around the country to understand the importance of making healthy life choices. They have built a network of doctors, educators, nutritionists, caregivers and professionals to assist in making sure they are using their resources for the betterment of all of our hearts.

IMG_6224

We at Cary Family Dental know on a personal level what wonderful work the American Heart Association does. Dr. Allan Acton’s son, Jack, was diagnosed with Heteroxtoxy Syndrome, a congenital defect that affects the arrangement of organs within the chest and abdomen. Due to this condition, his heart formed with only two chambers, significantly impacting his blood circulation throughout his body. One out of million children are born with this condition and 30 or 40 years ago children with this condition only lived a day or two.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to the American Heart Association; they played a role in getting jack to this point and will play a role in his future. There is not a plan B for Jack so we are relying on research and awareness and that is what the AHA is all about. Giving to the American Heart Association supports what will be the future for Jack and children like Jack and heart patients everywhere,” states Dr. and Mrs. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental.

About the American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, the organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters.

Cary Family Dental to Host Implant Seminar

Cary Family Dental to Host Implant Seminar

CARY, NC – October 20, 2015- Cary Family Dental will host its 4th Implant Seminar on October 27, 2015 at 6:00 pm in their office at 1149 Kildaire Farm Road. With overwhelming attendance at prior seminars, Cary Family Dental saw a need in the community to educate everyone on the advantages of implants. “We believe it’s important for families to know about implants as part of overall dental health, which is why we’re hosting another seminar,” said Cary Family Dental’s Dr. Allan Acton.

Dental implants are replacements for an individual’s natural root, and can act as an anchor for dental crowns and other dental prosthetics. After discussing their options with Dr. Acton, many of his patients find a tooth implant is the best option to solve a variety of dental issues they are facing. Dr. Acton provides complete treatment by providing oral care from the time of diagnosis until the completion of the patient’s treatment. Patients are reassured that they are receiving the best recommendations and care from start to finish.

This is what one of Dr. Acton’s patients had to say about receiving their implants:

“It’s the best thing I have ever done…like permanent teeth. Had them
in just before Thanksgiving and it was the best Thanksgiving dinner
I’ve had in a long time.”
Cary Family Dental patient Dennis B.

Cary Family Dental Provides Close to $1,000 to Teachers Through Supply Reimbursement Program

Cary Family Dental Provides Close to $1,000 to Teachers Through Supply Reimbursement Program

Cary dental practice’s three-month program provides financial support to Wake County teachers

CARY, NC, December 24, 2009– From September through November, Cary Family Dental sponsored their second School Supply Reimbursement Program, which reimbursed qualifying teachers up to $50 for money spent on classroom supplies. Over the three-month program, Cary Family Dental reimbursed a total of $930.45 to teachers in Wake County.

Sheri Gross, an educator at Farmington Woods IB/PYP Elementary in Cary, received a reimbursement through Cary Family Dental’s program and is grateful for the support. “With the poor economy, teachers have less funds to work with,” says Gross. “The Cary Family Dental School Supply Reimbursement is a great way to balance hard times.”

Dr. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental said the supply reimbursement program was in response to the continuing hardship educators face with having to do more with less. “I think we often take for granted the financial burden placed upon our teachers,” says Dr. Acton. “In order to provide our children with the highest quality education, teachers often take money out of their own pockets in order to buy materials and supplies for their classrooms. This reimbursement program is our way of recognizing their efforts and thanking them for all they do.”

Margaret Feldman’s class at Salem Middle School in Apex is working on a project whose cost will be partially offset by the school reimbursement program. “The kids are getting notes from the troops, and we are creating a global community,” explains Feldman. “The cost to do this is worth it, but the public does not realize how much money of their own teachers spend to enrich learning.”

Holly Springs Middle School teacher, Carmen Nurinda, says that the School Supply Reimbursement Program of Cary Family Dental is “awesome” and she hopes other businesses adopt a similar program to assist educators. “As teachers, we are having a hard time with large classes, budget cuts, etc.,” says Nurinda. “I wish more offices and businesses start supporting the schools in Wake County as Cary Family Dental does.”

This year, Cary Family Dental was only able to offer reimbursements to teachers who are new or current patients of the practice. Dr. Acton says that he would be interested in partnering with other medical practices and businesses in order to expand this program to as many teachers as financially possible.

“It’s time that we all come together to give back to those who give so much of themselves on a daily basis,” says Dr. Acton. “The more money we’re able to raise through community and business partnerships means more assistance to our educators, which ultimately benefits our children.”

Businesses interested in becoming a School Supply Reimbursement Program partner can contact Cary Family Dental at (919) 460-6884.

Through a unique partnership with legendary entertainer Garth Brooks and his Teammates For Kids Foundation, Smiles for Life guarantees that half of the money raised by Crown Council members goes to children’s charities in communities across North America. The remaining half goes to the charity chosen by the dental practice. For the second year in a row, Cary Family Dental Family Dental selected Interact, the only confidential domestic violence prevention program serving Wake County’s twelve municipalities.

“I’m proud of our partnership with Crown Council and the money and awareness that we’ve been able to raise through our efforts for the Smiles for Life Campaign,” says Dr. Acton. “Last year, my [Cary Family Dental] colleagues dared me to shave my head if we raised $20,000 for this wonderful cause. We met our goal, I went bald for fall, and I couldn’t have been a happier man for it! We look forward to continuing to challenge ourselves in order to keep raising money for this amazing association and cause.”

Greg Anderson is the director of the Crown Council and president of the Smiles for Life Foundation. The Smiles for Life campaign is now in its 13th year and has raised over $27 million to help over 500 children’s charities around the world. He says that the efforts of Cary Family Dental show just how much of a positive effect a single dental practice can have on so many families.

“Dr. Acton and his team represent unparalleled enthusiasm for Smiles for Life, having raised over $65,000 over the past five years to benefit both the Triangle Down Syndrome Network and Interact in the Cary community,” says Anderson. “Together, with our partners at the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, we are grateful (along with children everywhere) for the commitment of Dr. Acton and his team for what they do to help those who are unable to help themselves. We hope the community will continue to support them in their efforts.”
