Drop them off at PURE Dental in Mockingbird Station throughout the month of April. And, when you book a spring tooth cleaning at PURE, they’ll donate a portion of the payment to the organization. “Our partnership with Dress for Success Dallas is a great way that we can support the community as well as a truly worthy organization that helps empower women and give them the resources and confidence they need to succeed,” says Dr. Kim Hildebrand, lead dentist at PURE Dental. “And what better way to be a good steward of our environment than to take items one person no longer uses and repurpose them for those who have a greater need.” Also, if you make a donation and book a new-patient cleaning, exam and X-rays in April, you get a free ZOOM! Whitening treatment. For details, visit
