It's that time of the season, and Dr. Mitul R. Patel, DDS of Family & Cosmetic Dental Care is in the gift-giving spirit by sponsoring a popular holiday program that gives brand new toys to children in need. From now until December 15th, Family & Cosmetic Dental Care and Dr. Patel are accepting donations of toys and cash for the Marine Toys for Tots program. All donated toys will be picked up on the 16th for later distribution to local children who are less fortunate than others. Any cash donations received will be spent on toys. This is the second year that Dr. Patel's practice has participated in the Toys for Tots program and team members say they excited to be a part of it. To Dr. Mitul R. Patel, DDS, it's a privilege and a responsibility to give to those in need. Every child deserves a present to open during the holiday season.

Begun in 1947 by Colonel William L. Hendricks, who at the time was only a Major in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, the Marine Toys for Tots program has collected and distributed toys to needy children for more than 63 years and has drop-off locations in communities large and small all over the nation. Over 419 million toys have been distributed to more than 195 million less fortunate children since the program began. Then in 1995, the Toys for program Tots was designated by the U.S. Secretary of Defense as an official activity of the U.S. Marine Corps and an official mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.

Although the practice's toy drive ends on December 15th, Family & Cosmetic Dental Care will not close for the holidays until December 23rd and re-open December 27th, continuing to offer a wide range of dental procedures. Not only does the practice offer general preventative and restorative dentistry, Family & Cosmetic Dental Care is proud to offer services such as teeth whitening, orthodontics, and implants. During this holiday break, the practice will also be reachable via an emergency phone number or email for those with any dental problems or concerns while the office is closed.
