We’re Getting Rich in February

Have you ever wanted to be rich? Well, here at Churchill Dental we’ve found a way to get rich.

February is Dental Health Month which means Give Kids a Smile Day. On Friday, February 1st, Churchill Dental is one of the sites scheduling children from all over the metro area for free dental check-ups, fluoride treatments, and cleanings. Many of these kids are from families who cannot afford regular dental care. No, I don’t have to twist arms, coerce, bribe or beg my staff to come into the office on a day off to treat these kids. They look forward to it as I do. To see the smiles on these kids’ faces and to hear their little “thank you”s are unforgettable gifts. We definitely receive much more from them than we give away. It is in that giving that we connect with others, with the world, and with our God. Indeed, it is by spending ourselves that we become rich.

It only takes a moment
to reach out to be a friend
but to the one who needs you
the memory never ends.

A simple act of kindness
to a person you don’t know
may plant a seed of friendship
that for them will always grow.

We sometimes lose perspective
of the difference we can make,
when we care more of our giving
and care less of what we take.

So remember that your actions
may help change a life someday.
Always think about the person
that you meet along the way.

It only takes a moment
to reach out to be a friend
but to the one who needs you
the memory never ends.
