Bringing smiles back in Dinsdale
Lumino The Dentists at Dinsdale was one of the 32 practices in New Zealand to open their doors for the fifth annual Lumino Day last Saturday.
The group’s annual community day sees Lumino The Dentists provide free dental care for a deserving group of people who give up their time to help people in some other way.
Practice manager Haidee Mcneil says the day was rewarding for the staff involved.
“We had all three of our surgeries going with three of our lovely dentists,” she says.
“It was a really fun day and we all loved meeting the patients and hearing about what they give up their time for and how truly deserving they were.”
This is the fifth year of Lumino Day, and the second where they have teamed up with Carers NZ — the national body that provides information, advice, learning and support to family carers.
More than 440 patients were seen up and down New Zealand on Saturday involving 42 Lumino The Dentists practices. A team of 83 clinical staff and close to 150 support staff were on hand to treat or assist the patients. More than $150,000 worth of free dental care was provided.
