Louisville Orthodontist and Pediatric Dentist Team Up to Give Back to Children Who Need It The Most
The faces on the children said it all. Smiles, giggles and laughter showed the joy of the moment brought by the gift bags put together and delivered by the teams of Dr L. Douglas Knight, Louisville orthodontist and his colleague, pediatric dentist Dr Shelley Branson.
The sick kids in Norton’s Children’s Hospital were very glad to see their visitors and the goodies they brought. As much as the kids were excited, Dr Knight and Dr Branson’s teams of dental professionals felt the joy of making a difference for those who need it the most.
“We are treating kids everyday in our orthodontic and pediatric practices so we felt a responsibility to do something. It felt good to give back, especially to sick kids. In today’s society, we all have a obligation to contribute back to our communities,” Dr Doug Knight explained.
The idea was hatched at a professional meeting over lunch between Dr Branson and Dr Knight. So on October 9th, 2017, they brought in both of their teams to put together the gift bags of crayons, markers, coloring books and more to deliver to the kids. And 50 children of Norton’s Children’s Hospital are very glad they did.
