Mosaic Medical, a community health center with 15 clinics across Central Oregon, is proud and grateful to continue the vision of the late Dr. H.M. Kemple with the creation of the Kemple Children’s Dental Fund. The fund has been established with a generous gift from the Kemple Memorial Children’s Dental Clinic, which closed its doors last year after more than 20 years of service to our community. The fund will provide integrated dental services at Mosaic clinics for children throughout Central Oregon who are uninsured or from low-income homes, allowing Dr. Kemple’s vision to live on.
From May 1 through June 30, Mosaic Medical will host Kemple’s flagship fundraiser, the Brighter Smiles campaign. During the campaign, participating dental offices will provide whitening services for 50 percent of the normal cost to their patients. All profits from the campaign will go to the Kemple Children’s Dental Fund to ensure cost will never be a barrier to dental care for families in Central Oregon.
The campaign is a true win-win for all involved. Patients get a gorgeous white smile for a great price, participating dentists receive valuable marketing exposure throughout the campaign and Mosaic Medical is infused with critical funding to cover the cost of dental services for children in need in the community.
Already, several local dental offices have signed on to help local children.
- Bend Dental Group: 541-378-4503
- Bend Family Dentistry: 541-876-1573 or 458-214-8691
- Shevlin Dental Center: 541-382-8575
- Timm Family Dentistry: 541-382-1991
Mosaic provides participating offices with the bleaching product as well as promotional materials and follow-up support. The dental offices donate the cost of creating bleaching trays and offer whitening services to patients for half price ($200). Patients write their checks out to Mosaic Medical for the services and all funds raised will be used to provide essential dental care to kids in need.
We are actively recruiting additional dental offices with the goal of having all participants confirmed by mid-April. If you would like to participate in this campaign but don’t see your dental office listed, reach out and encourage them to sign up by emailing Angela Saraceno at email@example.com.
