Dentistry @ Manotick is very passionate about being active members of the Manotick village and we love to give back in any way that we can. In 2019 we have started a “We Care Community Program” where we allocate a certain amount of money to go towards helping out the community, proving free dental treatment, and donating to various charities. Whether this is helping a certain individual in the community, helping a non-profit organization, supporting another local business or helping a certain population of people, we are there to lend a helping hand!
As an office, our goal for the 2019 “We Care Community Program” is $20,000! We know we can accomplish this with lots of hard work and planning! Scroll down below to see the different ways we have been part of this amazing community and how we are slowly working towards our goal of $20,000!
This winter, grade 11 and 12 students of St. Mark High School were able to play in the 2019 Coal Bowl National Invitational Basketball Tournament in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in early February, 2019. What a great experience! Our office donated $250 to go towards travel expenses. We also offered every player on the team a custom-made sports guard, fabricated at our office at no cost. (Average cost of custom-made sports guards made at our office $600)
Our office has partnered up with Youth of Manotick (YOMA) and sponsored the pizza party which took place on Friday April 12th at the Manotick Arena. There was a free pizza party and concert performed by the youth group “Youth X”. We donated a total of $250 to this event.
This is our second year of sponsoring MPS. We have donated $250 to go towards new school supplies and gym equipment!
This is also our second year of contributing a $500 bursary to three different local high schools. The three bursaries are given to a top science student in the grade 12 graduating class who is pursuing a career in the health care field.
ROSSS (Rural Ottawa Senior Support Services) is holding a golf fundraiser tournament. Our office will be sponsoring a hole ($150) and donating an item for the auction/door prizes ($50). The golf tournament takes place Friday, July 5th, 2019.
This will be our second year of doing a Free Dental Day. We have picked September 21 as our free dental day for the year of 2019. This is a special event which we have committed to provide free dental care to individuals in the community at a first-come-first-serve basis. Each person will have a choice of a filling, a tooth extraction or a hygiene appointment (dental cleaning). Last year, in 1 day we were able to treat 19 patients and had a grand total of $5,192 of dental services performed at no cost. We are hoping to top that this year!
This will be our second year organizing a team to take part in the Terry Fox Run to raise money for cancer research. Our goal for this year is to raise $1000 as an office. We will be running 5km at the Greely Community Centre on Sunday, September 15, 2019.
Paul Brooks, owner of Paul’s Pharmacy, here in Manotick, is stepping into the ring to Fight for the Cure to raise funds for better cancer care here in Ottawa. On October 19th, he will be facing his opponent at Casino Lac Leamy, after 8 months of training. All funds raised to this event will go towards Cancer Coaching, a unique service offered by the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation which helps cancer patients improve their wellbeing, by receiving practical and emotional support. Our office has donated $200 to go towards Paul’s event and help raise funds for better cancer care in Ottawa.
On December 8th from 10am-2pm our office will have a Christmas activity day for children of all ages. Christmas photos with Santa, crafts, games and lots of fun!!
Hot chocolate and treats will also be served. Come see our brand new office and get in the Christmas spirit!!
Dentistry@Manotick is hosting their first FREE Dental Day.
This is a day to give back to the community of Manotick and surrounding areas.
Any adult over the age of 18 has a choice of a cleaning, tooth extraction or filling completed at no charge. The event runs from 9am-4pm. The registration process begins at 8am and is a FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVE basis. It is best to arrive early to secure your spot, as space is limited. Dentistry @ Manotick prides themselves on community involvement and is hoping to make this an annual event. On September 8th, 2018 Dentistry @ Manotick was able to treat a total of 19 people and performed just over $5,000 of free dental treatment. We are hoping to make this an annual event and help more and more people each year.
This year Dentistry@Manotick is proudly supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs by taking part in The Terry Fox Run! We will be participating in the 5km walk/run on Sunday September 16th at the Greely Community Centre.
Our goal as an office is to fundraise $1000 for the Terry Fox Foundation.
We very much hope you will consider sponsoring us in support of our effort. We are confident that your kindness will impact the lives of so many people living with cancer. The link below will bring you to the Terry Fox Organization Page which you can donate to our event.
Dentistry at Manotick is hosting an open house on Friday May 11th from 5-7pm. As we are a new office, this is a great chance to meet potential new patients in the community.

On April 18, 2018, Manotick Public School and Dentistry @ Manotick took part in the Brush ‘A’ Mania 2018 Presentation. Brush ‘A’ Mania is a not-for-profit program designed to promote oral health and awareness among young children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. It was started in 2001 by the the Rotary Club of Toronto – Don Mills and has already reached over 500,000 students. Each year dental practices are encouraged to reach out to local schools to take part in the program. This year, Manotick Public School and Dentistry@Manotick have worked together to create a great presentation for children in grades 1-5 educating them on the importance of oral health.
April is National Oral Health month in Canada and the reason for doing this presentation is to educate children across Canada about the importance of good oral hygiene, nutrition and the link between oral health and overall health. The Brush ‘A’ Mania program is wonderful as it educates kids but also provides them with a chance to win awesome prizes by just brushing and flossing their teeth.
All children have a chance to win the grand prize of an XBOX One or one of fifty Android tablets. We encourage the parents/guardians to work with their child/children to complete this program so they have a chance to win. Every child must brush and/or floss their teeth 100 times in any 30-day period and get their parents or guardians to track this online at www.brushamania.ca from April 1st-May 31st. After 100 brushes or flosses are tracked the child will receive a certificate of completion and be entered in the contest to win.
"Dentistry @ Manotick would like to extend their thanks to Manotick Public School for allowing us to present to the children and thank the Ottawa Dental Society for donating a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste for each child that participated at the presentation".
Dentistry @ Manotick is a Platinum Sponsor for Manotick Public School. We have donated to the Public School to help with new equipment and resources the school requires. Being a Platinum Sponsor, we were able to take part in the school’s Spring Fair which was held on May 26, 2018.
Staff at Dentistry @ Manotick dressed up in a tooth fairy and tooth costume and kids lined up to take pictures. The Spring Fair also had air bounces, face painting, fire trucks, police cars, a silent auction and lots of carnival games.
We would like to thank Manotick Public School for inviting us to their Spring Fair!
Dentistry @ Manotick was able to take place in the 2018 Dickinson Day. On Saturday June 2nd, our staff set up a booth at the local event. People that stopped by our booth were able to fill out a ballot for a free electric toothbrush and take-home whitening kit. In total there was 71 entries and 5 winners. We would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth and we hope to take part in the 2019 Dickinson Day!
