El Paso TX Dentist Holiday Food Drive 2011

Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj offered a significant discount on dental services in order to assist people who needed dental care in tandem with helping her community food pantry this past holiday season.

For $39, patients received oral examinations, x-rays and dental cleanings, and all the proceeds will be going to the West Texas Food Bank.

“It was an amazing turn-out and 130 people came in to take advantage of our $39 dollar special discount to benefit the holiday food drive. All in all we collected $5,070 from all our three offices and we handed a check for the whole amount and donating it to West Texas Food Bank,” says Dr. Darj.
