Dentistry For Special People's 4th Annual Halloween Candy BuyBack

October 1st, 2018

Dentistry For Special People is super excited to invite you to our 4th Annual Halloween Candy BuyBack! This year’s Buyback event will be held on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, from 10am to 1pm, at both our Cherry Hill and Turnersville locations!

If you are new to our Candy BuyBack event, it’s like this: Kids go Trick-or-Treating on Halloween and collect tons of candy, right? So parents, you then sort through their candy, take all the king size for yourself (wink, wink), and the let the kids pick out a certain amount that they keep for themselves. The kids then bring their unwanted, (or should we say, unneeded) Halloween candy to our office and we will “buy” that candy back at $1 per pound. The kids leave with the cash for their hard earned trick-or-treating, and we then send all of the candy we get off to be put into care packages for our troops who are overseas, serving to protect our nation.

We will also have special prizes for the littler “ghouls and goblins” who still prefer toys over money, as well as a craft table for the kids to make cards and draw pictures to send to the troops with the candy that is sent  : )

Last year we collected well over 700 pounds of candy, and we are expecting no less this year. We’ve said this before and we will say it again- the kindness and generosity of the kids in this community never ceases to amaze us- and the “BuyBack” part of this is our little way of giving back to the kids and families, who always give so much!

For more details feel free to reach out via phone or email with any questions as well!

We hope to see you all there!

Meet our newest Pediatric Dentist Dr. Ashley Abraham!

August 14th, 2018

Welcome Dr. Abraham

Dentistry For Special People is thrilled to officially announce the newest dentist to join TeamDfsp, Dr. Ashley Abraham! Dr. Abraham has been our neighbor since day one: She grew up in Newtown, Pennsylvania and now lives in Philadelphia. It’s always an added bonus to have a dentist who “roots” for the home teams with us!

Dr. Abraham is passionate about the opportunity to help our patients build healthy habits at a young age, that will set them up for great attitudes towards oral health and coming to the dentist!
To quote Dr. Abraham herself, she is "excited by the challenge of learning each child’s unique personality & set of needs, so that she can communicate in a way that makes him or her feel comfortable." By doing so, she hopes to help our patients "develop the skills to power through their dental visits with more ease.” 

We are super excited to have found the perfect match for our team, and we know our patients, and their parents, will adore her as much as we do! Please help us warmly welcome Dr. Ashley Abraham into our Dental Home as the newest pediatric dentist of Dentistry For Special People!

Expecting Moms Oral Health “Teach and Talk”!

July 17th, 2018

Pregnancy and oral health education

CALLING ALL EXPECTING MOMMAS! COME JOIN US on Wednesday July 18 for our very first “Expecting Moms “Meet and Learn” Class on the Importance of Oral Health: Both Momma’s oral health and your infants oral health!
We all know that being pregnant has major effects on a mother's body, and your mouth is no exception! We also know that there’s a TON to think about when you're expecting a baby, and even more so once baby is born! TeamDfsp wants to help make sure that in the whirlwind of pregnancy and your child's birth, you remember about yours and baby's teeth! Because it’s never too late to start caring for your oral health, and it’s never too soon to start caring for your baby’s oral health!?

So get ready for some learning, socializing, and super cool new baby swag to take home. And maybe the best part? A chance to meet other expecting moms in the community to bond, socialize, and swap pregnancy stories that only other expectant mommas can relate with!
The class is being run by our very own, and very "expecting" hygienist Alexis! It is free, and the more the merrier! Please share with all your friends and any local pregnancy groups you belong to! We hope to see you there!

*All expecting parents are welcome!
