Dental Office Trips & Tours for Scouts and Schools
With a passion for outreach and a commitment to service, our offices offer several programs to engage youth and families within our local communities. All of our Grand Dental Group locations offer trips and tours for community groups, schools, and daycare centers. The Girl Scouts of the USA and the Boy Scouts of America are also organizations that we serve. We also welcome groups from senior citizen centers, adult group homes, and organizations that work with special needs children and adults. Our offices are wheelchair accessible, smoke free, animal free, and free of latex and other common allergens.
Scouting Badge/Patch Events
Grand Dental offices offer programs to help Cub Scout and Girl Scout Troops earn various badges and patches in dentistry, health, fitness, science, self-respect, and well-being. Many of our team members are former scouts or currently active with scouting through their own families. We also have dental team members who are certified counselors for the Boy Scouts of America Dentistry Merit Badge. Troops and Dens are welcome to contact one of our offices for more information. We offer our facilities and staff for these events, year-round. Our team will work to arrange a time and day that is convenient for your troop, den, or pack. We will create a tailor-made program for your group that provides the type of educational or fun trip, tour or event you seek. If needed, our team can include light refreshments for your group and all of our events include a dental healthcare take home package. The events are open for scouts’ parents, leaders, and siblings to attend, as well.
School/Day Care Office Tours and Presentations
Our offices have developed fun and educational programs for preschool and school-aged children, and their teachers, classmates and families. Daycare centers and home daycare providers are also welcome to arrange a presentation or dentist trip and tour of our facilities. We combine magic tricks, reading, and interactive activities to engage children in learning about the dental office and their overall health. We offer office tours and dental health presentations that are age-appropriate and exciting. Our highly trained staff can either bring this entertaining program to your classroom or child care center, or for the full hands-on experience, we can schedule a tour of one of our facilities. The presentations come complete with a take home dental treat bag for each attendee and educational pamphlets about dental services and procedures for parents and guardians. In-office presentations also include child-friendly “rides” in the dental chair, “show and tell” with dental equipment, and fun interactions between our dental staff and the children. Our focus is to educate children and take the fear out of visiting the dentist with magic and friendly faces! Call one of our offices today to discuss options for your group’s dental presentation and tour.
In addition to year-round events, our offices also encourage and promote awareness for October’s Dental Hygiene Month and February’s Children’s Dental Health Month. We are able to create programs for your school or community group that specifically address these national campaigns. Please contact our team today for more information.< Back to Blog
