Empowering youth at Arizona’s MY FEST
One weekend last April, Tempe Modern Dentistry and Every Kid’s Dentist and Orthodontics in Arizona, members of our Smile Generation family, had the amazing opportunity to host a booth at the Tempe MY Fest ‘ll. Members of the Magellan Youth Leaders Inspiring Future Empowerment (MY LIFE) Arizona hosted and produced the event. MY LIFE is geared towards helping Arizona youth empower and improve their lives while helping other to do the same. The MY Fest youth festival was held at the Tempe Beach Park and featured live music, break dancing crew competition, entertainers, artists, food, youth groups and a variety of youth and family-based Valley organizations offering information, resources and services.
Smile Generation team members from our Tempe location helped hand out dental goodies, answer oral hygiene questions, and offer information about Smile Generation’s services. The crowd was plentiful, with nearly (5,000 in attendance!) and they were extremely interested in what our fun and colorful booth was all about.
It didn’t hurt that we shared a booth with some adorable Golden Retrievers from the http://www.phoenixchildrens.com/
Anthony Robles, Arizona State University wrestler, came by our booth too. Anthony won the NCAA Championship, having overcome the challenge of being born with only one leg. You can ready more about his inspiring story here. We gave him some dental goodies and even invited him and his mom to visit our dental office.
