The doctors and staff of the Lasky Pediatric Dental Group have deep roots in the San Fernando Valley community as most live in the area. They’re not only focused on being dentists for kids, all are committed to giving back to their surrounding communities, the city of Los Angeles and the world at large. They participate in variety of pediatric dental service initiatives and other organizations they feel drawn to because they benefit children. Below are some of the notable highlights of how the kids’ dentists in the Lasky Pediatric Dental Group “family” makes the lives of others just a little bit brighter.

Dr. Lecia Harmer Visits Preschools For Dental Health Month

Dr. Lecia Harmer showing a preschooler how to brush his teeth

 

Dr. Lecia Harmer met with over 150 preschoolers this week to educate them on proper oral health care. The 3-5 year olds loved playing  “Guess which is the Healthy Snack”, brushing the giant mouth with the oversized toothbrush and learning what happens if you don’t brush your teeth EVERY day. Each child went home with a new toothbrush, toothpaste and a positive attitude towards the dentist. It was a special week for not only the kids but for Dr. Lecia too!

Jaimashi Organization

The Lasky Pediatric Dental Group was proud to participate and sponsor a humanitarian dental trip to Nepal.  One of our hygienists, Liz Martens joined a team of eleven who worked primarily on the Tamang people living in small Himalyan villages near the Tibetan border. Over 100 preventive dental sealants were placed in the mouths of small children at no cost due to the financial support of the Lasky Pediatric Dental Group. These sealants will help to prevent these children from suffering from dental disease.
