Bring­ing smiles back in Dins­dale

Hamilton News - - Front Page -

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.
