Beginning on April 25th, 2014, Christ’s Family Clinic will add Dental Care to the services it provides to the uninsured.
This expansion of care into general dentistry is the initiative of Dr. Gary E. Alhadef, DDS, a Board Member of Christ’s Family Clinic. Joining him in this effort is Dr. Cliff Kerby, DDS, who will travel to Dallas from his home in Paris, Texas, to provide services.
“Extending our services into dental care is a big step for Christ’s Family Clinic,” said Jamie Malakoff, the Clinic’s Executive Director. “Dr. Alhadef, one of the leading dentists in North Texas, has been a great supporter of the Clinic as a Member of our Board and will now be providing care. Similarly, Dr. Kerby, a top dentist in East Texas with a long record of volunteerism, is showing tremendous generosity in traveling to Dallas for this purpose. In giving of their office hours to treat the uninsured, without compensation, both Dr. Alhadef and Dr. Kerby are fulfilling the Clinic’s mission of demonstrating God’s love by caring for those in need.”
Dr. Alhadef, who has over 25 years’ experience serving patients in North Texas in the areas of pediatric dentistry, periodontistry, orthodontistry, family dentistry, laser dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry, said “I am honored to pay it forward in taking care of those in need in our community for their dental health. Healthy smiles enhance self-confidence. Giving back to our great city is a big part of why we do what we do.”
Dr. Kerby, who practices a full scope of general dentistry, explained his call to Christ’s Family Clinic’s effort by saying “Jesus’ love for the poor was confirmed by his efforts to restore them physically as well as spiritually. I look forward to working with Christ’s Family Clinic as they follow his example.” Dr. Kerby earned his doctorate in dental surgery from Texas A&M Health Science Center, Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.
The Dental Clinics will be held in Dr. Alhadef’s office in Highland Park. The first Clinic will be conducted on April 25th, from 9:00 am through 12:00 pm. For an appointment or to help sponsor the event, please contact Ruth Flores at (214) 261-9500.
