Past Monarch David Driesbach has been the Dr of Smiles for Zorah Grotto and at the 2014 National Convention, in Mobile, Alabama was presented the PGM Robert W Rush Award as Dr of Smiles of the Year for 2014. David represents the heart of our charity, Dental Care for Children with Special Needs in the Sunnyvale/San Jose, CA areas. With David’s help, Zorah Grotto also received the PGM Michael G Wahl Award in 2008 and again 2014 for the largest percentage increase over the previous year of the number of dental cases (children helped). Last year we processed and paid dental treatment for 81 children paying $135,182 to help those children. David has diligently worked as the Dr of Smiles since 2009 and works with many Dentists in the area and one office in particular, was so delighted and interested with our program that they wanted to ‘Pay It Forward’. In their reception area, they posted our dental brochure and a poster for their Patient/Families of their Patients, to make a contribution to our program if they would like. It started out as a $5.00 donation, but many of their Patients went further with their donations. Dr Paul Griffith, his Staff and Patients have contributed over $3,000 to the Humanitarian Foundation’s Fairchild Program, paying it forward to help more special needs children. Thank You Dr of Smiles David and Dr Griffith’s Office !!!! We want to thank and honor all of the Dental Offices not only in California, but all over the United States and Canada that have chosen to be a part of the Dental Care for Children with Special Needs program to help those children who might not have the funding to have their dental work done.
Together we can all help David Driesbach and all of our Drs of Smiles along with the dental offices bring Smiles to these children One Smile at a Time!
The Humanitarian Foundation and Grottoes of N America would like to congratulate David Driesbach for his devotion and untiring endeavors to the program and to salute and thank all of the Drs of Smiles for the Grottoes of N America for their untiring devotion to our dental program.
