Caring for Others Through Education

All businesses should give back to their community in one way or another, whether it be by donating to charity, supporting a community event, or doing volunteer work. On a smaller scale, giving back to the community could also mean having events for patients or celebrating with them when they complete treatment.

At Alabama Family Dental, we love giving back to our community and beyond! One way we do this is through our annual Free Dental Day when we provide free dental care to local people in need. Additionally, Dr. Whatley participates in Transcend Dental Education courses, which offer education for dental professionals and dental treatment to the underserved.
