Thanks to Philadelphia Gentle Dental offices participating in a Give Kids A Smile event, children are smiling brighter.
On June 20, 2012, four Philadelphia Gentle Dental locations saw over 30 children and performed almost $10,000 worth of complimentary dental treatment.
Dr Keith Libou, Gentle Dental of Pennsylvania’s Dental Director, said “We are happy to do our part by offering children the opportunity to receive quality dental care, which has been shown to improve higher self-esteem and overall happiness throughout their lives.”
Children at the event received treatment in various areas including exams, x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatment.
Gentle Dental of Pennsylvania works to improve the overall dental health in children by encouraging children to take care of their teeth, offering affordable treatment options, and helping to teach good dental habits.

Being a sole practitioner for 17 years with multiple locations in different cities was a wonderful opportunity and experience for me. I absolutely loved every minute of it. During those 17 years, I thought I had seen everything, and overcome pretty much every challenge imaginable, but who could have imagined COVID-19 and the economic struggles we are all facing in 2020?
Having DCA as a business partner during this unprecedented tragedy has provided a wealth of support, expertise and team work I could never have experienced as a sole practitioner. During this difficult time, DCA has shown tremendous support to staff, has leveraged powerful supply chain support, answered every call and offered the depth of experience only a seasoned DSO can offer.
Myself and my entire team deeply appreciate all DCA has done and continues to do as we all work to come out of this struggle together. It is a pleasure to work with the professionals at all levels of DCA and we note the sincere and genuine leadership. I am happy to have somewhere to turn for solutions I could not possibly offer on my own as a single proprietor.
