Stourbridge dentists turn bakers
Dental practice staff became cake makers for the day to raise money for charity.
Stourcote Dental Practice in Lower High Street, Stourbridge – part of Tri-Dental – raised £175 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
All the practices combined helped raise £500 for the charity.
Emma Crideford, area manager at Tri-Dental, said: “To raise funds for the charity that goes above and beyond for cancer patients and their families, Macmillan has become something close to many people’s hearts.
“We encouraged neighbouring businesses from the High Street to pop in for cake, as well as patients who were getting their teeth checked.
“It was also a great opportunity for dental staff to show off their baking skills”. Meanwhile, the Church Street practice in Bilston helped educate pupils from Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School on keeping teeth and gums healthy.
Church Street Dentist Nirali Nathwani and principal dentist Jaz Jandu ensured the day was interactive by bringing in various food to educate children.
A question and answer session also took place. Goodie bags were handed out by Simplyhealth professionals and Colgate for children to keep and refer to on keeping teeth healthy.
