She opened her 3 dental locations on February 20th and March 14nd and welcomed anyone who needed emergency dental work done. Dr Darj and her staff treated the patients for free on those 2 days.
Realizing that many people are struggling in the current economy, Affordable Dental Associates owner Dr. Darj wanted to give people who couldn’t otherwise afford treatment an opportunity to take care of dental problems before they become more serious, and more costly.
“We were able to treat a total of about 200 patients offering them various procedures ranging from dental fillings to extractions and cleanings,” said Dr. Darj. “At the end of our last event, there were more people beyond our capacity to see. We gave rain checks for them to come back.”
“I am fortunate to have a job that entails bringing smiles to patients on a daily basis by getting rid of pain and improve their oral health as well as their appearance,” said the El Paso dentist.
In addition to free dental days, Dr Darj has also held numerous community events including food drives and also Do A Good Deed contests, which inspired youths to focus on performing good deeds. Children 18 years old and younger can enroll by visiting dentistryelpasotx.com.
“I would like to do my part as a dentist to help and hope other healthcare providers would join me and organize a similar effort in their community to help keep our fellow Americans healthy.” explained Dr. Darj.
