    10 years, 10,000 pounds

    Thank you to our wonderful community for helping make our 10th Annual Candy Drive a huge success. Every year, the drive grows in size and scope. What started as a small candy buy back with a handful of local kids has grown into an endeavor that spans the Metrowest: this year, we have 41 number of schools participating, along with numerous businesses and organizations. Best of all, we have collected more candy than ever before: we have shattered a record of nearly 10,000 pounds of candy. To be exact, if anyone is curious, we collected 9,883.3 pounds of candy. I’m sure everyone is wondering what we’re going to do with…

    7th Annual Candy Drive: Send the Sweet Message of Support to Our Troops!

    Halloween is right around the corner! For some, this is one of the most exciting holidays of the year, with its costume parties, spooky decorations, and of course, trick-or-treating! The kids, probably, love this holiday the most – the look forward to dressing up and collecting sweets door-to-door in the neighborhood. They do a great job and often collect quite a bounty they can’t possibly eat! Well, they will tell you otherwise, of course, but eating candy every day of the week does not benefit the health of their teeth. To save the pretty little smiles from cavities AND to teach the young ones lessons of sharing, encourage the children (and adults!)…

    Summer Experience at Wellesley Dental Group

    Dear WDG, Thank you to everyone at Wellesley Dental Group.  Special thanks to Dr. Femina and Dr. Ali for letting me shadow and be a part of their practice. My time at Wellesley Dental Group went above and beyond any shadowing experience I could have ever imagined. Going into this summer I expected shadowing to be hours of watching procedure after procedure; and I was right. Shadowing is just that, being a shadow. This office allowed me to step out of the shadows and become a helping hand. With the help of everyone at Wellesley Dental Group, I slowly learned how the practice operated. In the beginning I was taught…

    Internship Experience at Wellesley Dental Group

    Hi, my name is Dan and I recently interned at Wellesley Dental Group.  It has only been a few weeks since my last day as an intern, and already I miss my friends and mentors at WDG.  I spent four years as a Pre-Dental student at Boston University, and I can say, without reservation, that my semester long internship at Wellesley Dental was the most eye-opening and rewarding learning experience of my life. In November of 2013, about three months prior to my first day at WDG, I began researching the top dental practices around Boston for potential internship/shadowing opportunities.  I knew that my first hands-on experience in the dental world would forever shape…

    Wellesley’s First Commercial Solar Installation

    On the sunny morning of July 18th, 2014, Wellesley Dental Group welcomed the local friends in the celebration the first commercial solar panel installation. The community came out to support the efforts of the local volunteers of the Wellesley Green Collaborative Network. Wellesley Weston Magazine (see article and pictures), Wellesley Townsman and Wellesley Media Corporation covered the community event. The event started out with a heart-warming performance of the National Anthem by Evan Lariviere, a Wellesley student of the Upham Elementary School. Evan’s calm and confident delivery helped the guests to stop for a moment to reflect and ponder about the main reason for the celebration – the community-wide effort to live in a better society and build a…

    Our Efforts of Protecting Young Athletes

    Several weeks ago Wellesley Dental Group partnered up with Wellesley School Athletics to organize raffles among the students who are actively engaged in contact sports. Lacrosse, baseball and softball team players entered the drawing to get a complimentary custom sports mouthguard for one member on each team. The initiative, dubbed “Protecting Our Athletes”, was organized by Drs. Ali & Ali in an effort to spread awareness of the importance of oral protection on the sports field. Knocked-out and chipped teeth should not be on the list of trophies the young athletes get after a game. Their health, hundreds of dollars and parents’ piece of mind can be preserved with the help of a…
