RCT Endodontics has formed a nonprofit called Trident Save-a-Smile to give back to the communities it serves. The company will partner with health and dental organizations to provide a day of donated endodontic treatment to low-income residents.
On Saturday, May 15, RCT Endodontics will host its third annual Save-a-Smile Day in conjunction with the American Association of Endodontists and its Save-Your-Tooth Month campaign.
Over the past three years, RCT Endodontics has partnered with Spanish Catholic Charities. This year, the company will donate endodontic treatments to select private dental practices in Maryland as well.
“This is our third year giving back to the community, and each year the outreach grows. We always look forward to this event,” said RCT Endodontics founder Dr. Ronald Taylor. “It is enriching to work with a team that is just as enthusiastic as I am to give back to the community.
“RCT has set a high standard in specialty dental philanthropy. They understand the incredible value of service to the community and donates their time and resources generously,” said Dr. Lucciola Lambruschini, director of dental services at Spanish Catholic Charities.
“Many of our low-income patients who live in this country illegally decide to risk losing their teeth or go to an unlicensed clinic instead of coming forward for professional root canal treatment,” said Lambruschini.
“Drs. Ronald Taylor and Adam Orgel were the first specialists to create such an event in Maryland. Each year, their team participates with such joy and had inspired other endodontist specialists as well. They genuinely have something special at their endo group,” Lambruschini said.
