    Participate In Our 9th Annual Candy Drive!

    All Metrowest Schools and organizations are invited to join Wellesley Dental Group’s 9th Annual Community Candy Drive to benefit the US troops serving overseas. From November 1st to November 9th, we will be collecting candy, along with handwritten notes and cards for our soldiers. Our goal is to teach our kids lessons in giving by encouraging them to share their extra Halloween candy with our troops. The sweet treats and the handwritten cards are a little reminder of home for our troops, and a message of support just in time for Veteran’s Day. The packages will be sent via CarePacks, a non-profit organization, along with oral hygiene supplies. We are inviting all schools and organizations to participate in our Press Event – November 10th at 10:00 am. Local media and photographers will capture the spirit of…

    Candy Drive 2012

    It is not every day that you see a mountain of candy at a dental office. This November, though, Drs.
