Portsmouth Community Page
Morrison Dental Group is committed to providing excellent dental service in Portsmouth, Virginia, while also being an active member in our community. There are many events throughout the year in the Portsmouth area that our dentists take part in. Below you will find just a few of the events we participate in. Please see our Facebook page for even more photos and call our office at 757-301-4155 for more details!
Smiles for Heroes
Smiles for Heroes is a free day of dental care for veterans in the surrounding area that do not have dental insurance. Dentists, hygienists, assistants and administrative staff from around the community volunteer their time and talent for this event. 2017 was our first year doing this event in our Williamsburg and Norge locations, and we look forward to doing this in other MDG locations in upcoming years.
Give Kids a Smile
Give Kids a Smile is a national event hosted by the ADA every year. We take part in the Portsmouth area event, which provides much-needed free dental care to Medicaid-eligible children age 18 and younger. We host the event in our Norge office and surrounding offices volunteer their staff and resources to make this day possible. This day spreads laughter and beautiful smiles to children in the Portsmouth community.
Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Every year in April, Morrison Dental Group celebrates Oral Cancer Awareness month. During this month, our Portsmouth office decorates in red to spread awareness and raise money for oral cancer research. We also promote oral cancer screenings which are done during every hygiene care appointment throughout the year.
Breast Cancer Awareness Week
Every year during the month of October, our Portsmouth office goes pink for breast cancer awareness for one week! Employees wear their best and brightest, and we host a raffle for any patients who come in wearing pink. We also have challenges and giveaways, and usually end the week with a doctor or two sporting their best pink tutus!
