Giving Back to the Community – Dentistry From The Heart

Doctors working together for the Dentistry From the Heart community service day.

Each year Dr. Jensen and the Oral and Facial Surgery Center give back to the community through Dentistry from the Heart. This past year our team joined with Dr. Heather Shick, at Above and Beyond Dentistry in Rockford, providing the opportunity for people to have a day of free dental work done. Our team along with Dr. Shick donated both their time and experience for a day of free dental work on Friday, August 5, 2016.

Patients had to be at least 18 years of age and could choose from three procedures:

  • Tooth Extractions
  • Tooth Fillings
  • Teeth Cleaning

The event was well received from the Community, especially at a time where many have no dental insurance. Dr. Jensen will always be a part of donating his time and experience to help those who are less fortunate.

Our special thanks to Dr. Shick and the team at Above and Beyond Dentistry and our Dental Assistant’s Shannon and Rhiannon from our team seen posing above.

Dr. Kurt F. Jensen and Mrs. Sue Jensen recently traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica on a mission trip along with other volunteers with the Kids Around The World organization to build two playgrounds at a local orphanage. Dr. and Mrs. Jensen travel annually donating their time and labor to build playgrounds around the world for the Kids Around The World organization. Dr. and Mrs. Jensen would like to thank everyone that donated their time and commitment on this endeavor. Dr. Jensen said that the most rewarding part of this experience is seeing how appreciative the children are during the building of these playgrounds and how excited they are to play on them because they have never had a playground before.
