Dr. Ian Pasch serving the community through Donated Dental Services

Dr. Ian Pasch DDS, Director of Herald Square Dental and The Denture Center has been donating dental care for patients of the Donated Dental Services program since 2008.

The Donated Dental Services (DDS) program is a collaborative, direct way that the dental profession reaches out to individuals with special needs. Because of the extraordinary compassion of participating Doctors, DDS tends to the essential and comprehensive dental care needs of our nation’s most vulnerable people; disabled, elderly or medically-compromised individuals who cannot afford necessary treatment nor get public aid. DDS patients have slipped through the cracks of Medicaid and Medicare programs with nowhere else to turn.

Dr. Pasch has been seeing at least one Donated Dental Services patient per month and has provided care which would otherwise have been out reach for those who need it most. Our Donated Dental Services patients not only receive needed dental care, but they also gain oral health, confidence and last but not least, a great smile! Thank you Dr. Pasch and Herald Square Dental/The Denture Center for your great efforts and compassion!

Dr. Arthur Yam runs for charity

At Herald Square Dental, Dr. Arthur Yam our Implant and Cosmetic dentist and partner, is taking the opportunity to utilize his participation in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon for an even greater cause! Dr. Yam will be running the 26.2 miles on November 6th to raise money for Make-a-Wish.

Make a Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities. This will be Dr. Yam's second marathon and he has already raised 85% towards his fund raising goal.

If you would like to help Dr. Yam and Make-A-Wise you can follow the link to donate this great cause!
