Laudenbach Periodontics Gives Back

The Philly Dentistry team recently participated in the Laudenbach Periodontics Gives Back fundraiser, supporting oral cancer research in collaboration with Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center. This impactful event provided invaluable insights into the latest advancements in oral cancer treatment and underscored the critical importance of early detection.

Our team was deeply inspired by the dedication and passion of the researchers and medical professionals at the forefront of oral cancer research. Their commitment to finding innovative treatments and improving patient outcomes is truly commendable. Witnessing their relentless efforts has reinforced our own dedication to patient health and preventive care.

As part of our ongoing commitment to this cause, Philly Dentistry integrates comprehensive oral cancer screenings into every dental exam. Early detection is key to successful treatment, and our screenings are designed to identify any potential issues at the earliest possible stage.

We urge everyone not to wait until it’s too late. Schedule your screening today to safeguard your health and support the ongoing research efforts that are making a real difference in the fight against oral cancer. By working together, we can contribute to a future where oral cancer is detected early, treated effectively, and eventually eradicated. Let’s make a stand against oral cancer and support the incredible work being done by researchers and medical professionals.

Hygiene and Homelessness

Philly Dentistry recently teamed up with some pretty awesome girls from Friends Select High School, located here in Center City. The group of high school girls reached out to our office about a hygiene and homelessness project they were working on. Without hesitation, our team was happy to help! The girls were trying to gather dental supplies so that they could distribute dental care kits to the homeless in Philadelphia. The project was a success as Philadelphia Dentistry and a few other offices in the city supplied toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, bags, etc. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of girls. They were even kind enough to share some photos while they were gathering all the supplies for the kits. We are always proud to help people in need, especially when it is in the wonderful city of Philadelphia.

Aliquippa Elementary School Donation

charity cirka

House of Prayer Lutheran Church partnered with the Aliquippa Elementary School to host students for virtual learning Monday – Thursday while learning is remote. Through a generous grant from our very own Dr. Ken Circa, the school was able to transform the fellowship hall into a clean, safe and supportive environment for 16 students a day. Food, safety, hygiene, and school supplies and equipment were purchased to create a safe environment for the students and the adult monitors on-premises.

“These kids need this support, and I can tell that it was appreciated by all of them. They all happily ate their breakfasts and lunches, which was alone I think a big help to their ability to learn. Some had trouble logging on, others didn’t have the proper equipment, others are very very far behind…. but we are going to do everything we can to help them succeed. Thank you, Dr. Ken, for making this possible, and thank you to the Aliquippa School District for thinking outside of the box for the welfare of our students! ❤” – Denise Drabeck

Little Free Pantry – Aliquippa HOP Lutheran Facebook Shoutout

Check out this new post from Little Free Pantry – Aliquippa HOP Lutheran about Dr. Cirka practicing radical generosity!

Today is the perfect day to focus on what we are thankful for. When people practice generosity, we are always thankful and grateful. When people practice RADICAL generosity, however, it takes you back. It takes your breath away. It can even make you cry.

Most of you who know and love our LFP are familiar with Dr. Ken Cirka of Philadelphia Dentistry. Radical generosity isn’t just a “sometimes” thing for him; it’s a way of life. Dr. Ken’s radical generosity is the reason our Little Free Fridge exists on the porch at House of Prayer Lutheran Church. It’s the reason that countless turkeys and hams were able to be donated by individuals this holiday season; the reason that thousands of gallons of milk have been able to be distributed, the reason that good, perishable food has been able to make it’s way to those in need in our community. And that is just one example of the times he has been radically generous with us.

We have recently been working with Aliquippa School District on an initiative to help our elementary school students struggling with the transition to virtual learning. Our committee came up with some ideas that would require funds that we don’t have. I remembered a donation that Dr. Ken made to our LFP a few months ago for signage (that we hadn’t used yet), and wondered if he would perhaps allow us to use that money for this new initiative.

I know how important education is to Dr. Ken – just this past Fall he made a large donation to a group working to fund computers for Ambridge School District children who were facing virtual learning with no computers. His donation resulted in providing dozens of children the opportunity to successfully continue their education. So I was hopeful and confident that he would be on board with the new use of this already-donated money.

His response stopped me dead in my tracks. Not only was he on board and excited about the initiative, but he made an ADDITIONAL donation to support it – FOUR TIMES THE AMOUNT OF THE DONATION I WAS ASKING ABOUT! His words were: “Keep pushing forward as we all have the responsibility to make this world a better place. You guys are rocking it! Thank you for all that you do!”

Dr. Ken, we cannot thank you enough for believing in us and our community! We will continue to strive to make our world a better place, and use your model of radical generosity as an inspiration to do so!! ❤ Folks, take a moment to reflect on the good around us. There is much. Happy Thanksgiving!! ❤
