How McCarl Dental Group, PC Supports the Greenbelt, MD Community

How McCarl Dental Group, PC Supports
the Greenbelt, MD Community

At McCarl Dental Group, PC, we work hard to offer exceptional dental services that are suited to our patients’ needs, schedules, and budgets. When it comes to supporting the local Greenbelt community, our doctors and team members take the same approach. We’ve been part of this area since James W. McCarl, DDS, became the town’s first dentist in 1924, and each year, we look for new ways to leave our mark. For instance, we love donating food and gifts locally during the winter holidays, and we regularly participate in clothing drives and other good causes too. In fact, several of our team members have even traveled to faraway countries to help serve refugees and others in need of care.

Do you know of a good cause or event that could use some extra support? Do not hesitate to let our dental team know. We are here to make a difference in lots of ways!

Bike to Work Week

We support the Commuter Connections and Washington Area Bicyclist Association’s annual Bike to Work Week celebration of biking as a clean and healthy way to get to work. We have volunteered at the Greenbelt Pit Stop each year to offer support, encouragement, and refreshments for participants.

School Visits

We frequently make visits to our local schools to provide oral hygiene education and information about the field of dentistry. From in-class discussions about proper at-home dental care to presentations during career days, we do our utmost to help young people learn more about the importance of oral health. Additionally, we offer fun prizes and contests for our educators, including a recent raffle for teeth whitening certificates that were awarded to five Prince George County teachers. We also support the Greenbelt Foundation, especially in their collaborative projects involving young people in our community.

Triple Crown Study Club

We believe that staying informed about the latest in the field of dentistry is one significant way that we support our communities and continue to offer the highest level of dental care. That’s why many of our dentists and dental team members attend continuing education through the Triple Crown Study Club, an affiliate of the Seattle Study Club. These regular educational events include fun and informative lectures, practice sessions, team building, and other staff development activities that help make our dental office a place that patients look forward to visiting.

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

We were overwhelmed with the response from our wonderful staff and dental patients. We are so proud to be able to give back in any way, especially during the holidays!

Dentistry Mentorship Program

It’s no surprise that in nearly a century, we’ve grown to love the field of dentistry, and one of the ways that we share our love of the dental field is by supporting the next generation of dentistry professionals through mentorship. We invite pre-dental students to join our team as interns. We welcome local students who want to learn more about the field to shadow our dentists and team members to learn more about how the dental office runs. Additionally, we welcome current dental school students and recent graduates who want to learn about running a successful dental office. It is a proud moment for us when we see one of our student dentists graduate and become our colleague!

Oral health is an important part of whole body health and wellness, and we’re proud to provide education about oral health and hygiene for our community at the Greenbelt Health & Wellness Fair. We also offer basic oral health screenings, demonstrations of proper dental care, and other information to promote healthy lifestyles.

In addition to supporting our local communities, we’ve also offered services to help communities around the globe. Most recently, Dr. Duarte visited Santa Barbara, Honduras, for a mission trip, helping to host a fully functional dental clinic in a local school and providing dentistry services for numerous families.

We are proud sponsors of Rafael’s Race. This is an annual fun run event that supports the Greenbelt Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). We love our local schools, and offering support for Rafael’s Race is just one more way we support them.

Heartbeat For Health

We offer complimentary dental health and oral cancer screenings as well as educational resources for families in our community as part of the Heartbeat for Health annual event, promoting healthy living. We love helping members of our community get better access to necessary, preventive dentistry, and this event is one more opportunity to do just that.

Wellness House Of Annapolis

Wellness House of Annapolis offers a range of support services for the survivors of cancer and their families. We offer volunteers and educational resources for this organization on a regular basis. Dr. Clayton McCarl has even provided seminars about how cancer and cancer treatments can impact dental health with information about combatting the potentially adverse impacts of cancer on oral health.
