As a local orthodontic practice, we understand the value of contributing to our community. At Hometown Orthodontics, our commitment to our patients and their families go beyond just their smiles. As a patient in our family, you are part of a community that spreads across Ontario. Dr. Virdee and the Hometown Orthodontics team are passionate about positively impacting our community in Northern Ontario and the Mississauga Area.
At Hometown Orthodontics, we understand that community outreach starts with a need. We try to address the needs of our patients, their families, the local community as well as the international community. Check out some of the ways we support you and our local and international communities:
International Medical and Dental Outreach
Each year Dr. Virdee makes a commitment to travelling with different organizations throughout the world to perform dental procedures for patients living in rural settings or with limited access to care. There are several community members that have joined her in the past. Some patients have provided donations of books and clothing that are given as gifts to patients. Read more about Dr. Virdee’s international outreach on the International Medical and Dental Outreach page.
Live Laugh Learn Scholarship
This scholarship is given in to two candidates in honour of Dr. Virdee’s parents, Kuldeep and Gurinder Virdee who, despite their struggles as new immigrants to Canada, made financial and personal sacrifices to provide their children the privilege of an education. Learn more about this scholarship program by visiting the Live Laugh Smile Scholarship page.
School Event Sponsorship
With local budget cuts, we understand that there is always a need for more supplies and equipment in schools. We enjoy the opportunity to meet parents, teachers and students alike as we sponsor local school events such as fun fairs and oral hygiene days. If you have an even at your local school that you would like us to sponsor, please contact us.
Sports Teams and Events
We know that parents face many challenges when it comes to raising their children, especially when it comes to extracurricular activities. We take pride in sponsoring sports teams within Mississauga and Sudbury areas. Recently, we have sponsored the Port Credit Storm Hockey Team, Mississauga Majors Baseball Team, Clarkson Comets, Meadowvale Minor Hockey and Mississauga Ringette Association and Happiness is Dancing in Sudbury. Talk to us about sponsorship of your teams, especially if you are a Hometown Patient – we would love to help.
Each month we hold contests in our office for our patients that benefit our community. We recently held a back to school drive to help local schools with supplies by giving away tickets to the Bruno Mars Contest. In the past we have completed a Pumpkin Drive and a Clothing Drive to benefit the local food bank. We continue to strive to do our best to support organizations within the community. If you know any organizations that could benefit from our help, please let us know!
