Lake Oconee Dentistry Celebrates Our Hometown Heroes!

June 5, 2019

Filed under: Giving Back,Our Practice — lakeoconeeteam @ 3:30 pm

Lake Oconee Dentistry is celebrating the upcoming July 4th holiday by taking a moment to thank the Hometown Heroes who work hard to protect our community each and every day.  The practice is offering active military, law enforcement, firefighters, DNR and EMS personnel the opportunity to receive a dental cleaning, exam and any necessary x-rays for just $17.76 when they schedule an appointment during the week of July 1, 2019.

“There are so many who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe,” says Dr. David Bradley, co-owner of Lake Oconee Dentistry. “Their daily efforts are instrumental to the freedom and independence each of us enjoy. July 4th is a perfect opportunity to recognize the contributions of these brave men and women.”

One hundred percent of the proceeds raised through this special promotion will be donated to The Gary Sinise Foundation, which was established under the philanthropic direction of actor Gary Sinise, perhaps best known for his role as “Lieutenant Dan” in Forrest Gump. Founded in 2004, the Gary Sinise Foundation serves our country’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.

If you are a Hometown Hero and are interested in receiving treatment, please call the office at 706-453-1333 to schedule a convenient appointment time.

December 10, 2018

Filed under: Blog,Dental Posts — lakeoconeeteam @ 5:29 pm

GREENSBORO, GA – According to the U.S. Department of Labor, dental assisting is one of the fastest-growing medical careers, with demand expected to grow steadily over the next several years. Because of this, a long-established dental office is now offering a new training opportunity for people looking to benefit from this industry boom.

Drs. David and Patti Bradley, owners of Lake Oconee Dentistry, are opening a training school for anyone interested in becoming a dental assistant. Assist to Succeed Lake Oconee is currently enrolling students for a new 12-week session, which begins February 2, 2019.

“Many people find it difficult to break into dental assisting because the available programs are too expensive and take too long,” says Dr. David Bradley. “Assist to Succeed is a 12-week program that is held on Saturdays, which makes the training more convenient, efficient and economical for people looking to start a new career.”

The Assist to Succeed curriculum gives students hands-on training to become a successful dental assistant. Students receive 80 hours of lecture and lab with a practicing dentist in a fully-operational dental office. Additionally, students will also be able to learn and observe procedures at specialty offices. Students will earn their Georgia radiology certification and CPR certification as part of the course.

The Saturday classes will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lake Oconee Dentistry office, located off Highway 44 in Greensboro, between the Publix parking lot and the movie theater. The school is certified through the state of Georgia Non-Public Post Secondary Education Commission.

“Our graduates will be able to get a job in the field because they will have hands-on experience working with patients,” says Dr. Bradley. “Our ultimate goal is to get them hired, and we’re going to give them the tools they need to help make that happen.”

Assist to Succeed Lake Oconee will be holding an informational open house on Wednesday, January 9th at 6 p.m., at the Lake Oconee Dentistry office. Those interested in attending the open house should call 706-347-2635 to reserve your spot, as space is limited. Those who attend the open house may be eligible for $500 off tuition. Tuition includes books and supplies.

Lake Oconee Dentistry hosted its second Stars, Stripes & Smiles event last Friday, November 16th, providing a free day of dental care to 89 area veterans and active military personnel.

Drs. David and Patti Bradley, Dr. Shelly Pound, Dr. Andrea Feldman, and Dr. Jamie Austin, along with Lake Oconee Dentistry hygienists, dental assistants and team members provided servicemen and servicewomen with a choice of a free cleaning, filling or extraction. Dr. David Miller, an oral surgeon and owner of Lake Oconee Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, also donated his time, along with his team, in order to help as many people as possible.

The doctors, in cooperation with a team of dental professionals and volunteers, provided 22 extractions, 23 fillings and 52 cleanings, totaling over $15,000 in free care. Lake Oconee Dentistry and Lake Oconee Oral Surgery have been partnering together for several years to provide dentistry for those in need. In total, the practices have donated over $250,000 in free dentistry to the lake area community through various events.

“The majority of veterans do not receive dental benefits through the VA. This event was a way we could thank these men and women for their service, while helping ensure they receive the dental care they need,” said Dr. David Bradley. “It was an honor to serve those who have served our country.  These men and women are truly some of our country’s bravest heroes.”
