Community Involvement – Buda, TX
How We Give Back to Buda
As individuals and as a dental team, we recognize the significance of giving back on both local and global levels. It isn’t about an obligation to participate, or a marketing push; it stems from genuine compassion for others, which is a core value we ALL share and practice daily in treating our dental patient family. Giving back is a vital component of Buda Dental Professionals that runs deep and is here to stay! We invite you to read more about these outreaches below.
Buda Dental Professionals Cares
Buda Dental Professionals has hosted our own full-day events that involved serving the people of Hays County by providing dental care for adults and children. These have been “in-house” events where we invited current patients to receive care they needed but could not afford, as well as “open” events that anyone in the community could line up and receive care for. Over the years we have donated tens of thousands of dollars worth of dental care to the most deserving people in our community!
Dental Van Outreach
We love partnering with Kids Tooth Team Outreach in serving children through a mobile dental van that visits their schools! The van has two dental operatories, x-ray units, and everything you need to take loving care of these kids. Our doctors and team provide cleanings, x-rays, sealants, fillings, and extractions to children at no cost, and we have a lot of fun in the process! We love partnering with the Kids Tooth Team!
Several years ago, Buda Dental Professionals’s founding father, Dr. Taylor, got connected with an organization called Hope Smiles, that works in third world countries, not only providing dental care, but training and equipping local dentists in those cities. The goal is to create sustainable care in these communities. Some of our team members had the opportunity to travel to Haiti to serve there! Additionally, Hope Smiles does local outreaches in partnership with hospitals in the United States, and our team has participated in events in Waco, Kyle, and Nashville.
Dr. Strickland and the team often invite local Girl Scout troops to our dental office to learn more about dentistry, dental careers, and dental outreach. Not only do they participate in several of our Learning Lab experiments, but they also leave understanding more about all of the amazing opportunities that a career in dentistry has to offer. Hosting the Girls Scouts always proves to be a fun and inspiring time for everyone!
We believe that you can’t truly be part of a community if you don’t reach out and support the local schools! We love to attend school festivals and not only provide fun hands-on experiments, but educate the kids on the mouth-body connection. We’re also honored to support leadership programs, host class field trips to our dental office, and sponsor local sports teams. Buda Dental Professionals has been part of this amazing community for the past 30+ years…and we can’t wait to see what the next 30 have in store.
