Mission of Mercy Pittsburgh
At Pruce Dental, our team is committed to giving back to the community that we have been privileged to serve for over 20 years. Whenever we have an opportunity to reach out to those in need, we are grateful to be able to do whatever we can to help.
Recently, Dr. Robert Pruce and his assistant Amanda volunteered their time at the Mission of Mercy dental clinic held at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The goal of the clinic was to provide free dental care to 1,000 patients over a two-day period. The event was a huge success that involved 1,200 committed dental professionals who all came out to volunteer their time and expertise to those in need.
Treatments offered at the clinic included diagnosis by a dentist, minor restorative fillings, extractions, and cleanings. Our office decided to participate in the oral surgery section because we felt that helping those with the most discomfort was most beneficial.
We were pleased to spend 11 hours on Friday treating many grateful patients. When Dr. Pruce heard that the oral surgery section was understaffed for Saturday, he volunteered to return to the event at 5:30 the next morning.
All in all, it was a wonderful and rewarding experience, and we look forward to our next opportunity to serve our community!
