The Dental Center of South Bend
1005 East LaSalle Avenue, South Bend, IN 46617

Community Outreach

Just as we love to help our patients, we also try to help the local community through a number of outreach efforts. The Dental Center of South Bend participates in the IUSB Access to Care Day event hosted by IU South Bend dental students, which calls for our South Bend dentists and dental hygienists to volunteer for an entire day to provide free dental care to local veterans. In addition, our office attends the Annual Career Academy Health Fair to talk about the importance of dental hygiene. We also strongly believe in team building, so each month we give customer service appreciation awards to staff members for working hard and providing excellent patient care. We look forward to welcoming you to our trusted practice.

The Dental Center of South Bend is passionate about children’s dental health and our local community. We are continuously looking for ways to give back. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and we are proud to participate in the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program. We have worked with local high schools to offer college scholarships to graduates and provide students with important information on maintaining proper oral health. Each year we sponsor various community events, host drives for Toys for Tots and provide dental health supplies where needed. The Dental Center of South Bend offers free resources to local organizations and community members including educational materials and oral health screenings.

The Dental Center of Indiana - Employee PhotoWe don’t just support the people of South Bend, we support the animals too!  We have partnered with the Potawatomi Zoo to care for the oral health of their furry family.  Our dentists have performed root canals, extractions and cleaned the teeth of leopards, river otters and more. Click here to visit our blog for more information.

Tina “Tooth Fairy” Oates is a Registered Dental Hygienist and our local Community Dental Health Educator. She can often be seen with our resident tooth mascot visiting community centers, boys and girls clubs, schools, daycare centers and healthcare events throughout South Bend. She can be seen at the local Crock Fest, Zoo Boo, and more, providing the community with dental health education, offering tips on maintaining a healthy diet, demonstrating proper brushing and flossing techniques and spreading oral health awareness throughout South Bend. We are proud to work with Tina, community residents, businesses and organizations in South Bend to improve oral health. Visit us on Facebook for more information and to learn where Tina “The Tooth Fairy” and the Tooth Mascot will be next.
