HealthLink Dental Clinic is holding an Anniversary Cocktail Party in September and, having provided free care to the community for a decade and a half, we surely have something to celebrate.
When we opened our doors in 2001, HealthLink provided both medical and dental care to low-income, working adults at no cost. Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the expansion of Medicaid, and having experienced a reduction in medical patient appointments, the clinic Board of Directors made the decision to focus on exclusively providing dental care – a need that is still evident in both Bucks and Montgomery County.
The Cocktail Party on September 21st will be a celebration of our clinic’s history – the donors, volunteers, and staff who have contributed to our successes for 15 years - as well as an invitation to the community and new friends to aid in sustaining our future.
Part of that future is our recent partnership with the Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University. The collaboration, which benefits both Temple University students and patients at HealthLink Dental Clinic, would not have been possible without the leadership of Dean Amid Ismail.
At the anniversary event, HealthLink will present Dean Amid Ismail with the Eugene Jackson Humanitarian Award to recognize his commitment to oral and overall health issues facing the underserved.
The Cocktail Party will begin at 5:30pm at Twining Hall (4900 E Street Road in Trevose), include hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and soda from MEI Catering, and feature jazz music by the Hazelrigg Brothers. Registration is $35 per person. Cash bar will be available.
