Here are Some of the best ways to hold a Dental Charity Ball –
1. Dental Screenings Corner:
A vital part of the dental charity ball could be setting up a dental screening corner where volunteer dentists and dental hygienists offer free checks for attendees. It would not only raise awareness about oral health but also help detect potential cases of tooth decay or other oral issues early enough to prevent severe damage. Make sure you have all necessary equipment available and ensure the space is kept clean and sanitary.
2. Medical Educational Talks:
Include medical educational talks as one of your activities during the event, inviting notable healthcare professionals from Med Center Health Foundation or Baylor Oral Health Foundation to share informative speeches. These speeches should revolve around topics like oral hygiene, preventative care, common dental diseases, cosmetic dentistry etc., providing valuable knowledge for attendees about maintaining their oral health.
3. Raffle Draw:
Organize a raffle draw as an exciting activity at your charity ball to attract more participants and get more funds for your cause. You can use donations from local businesses as prizes such as cosmetic dentistry treatments, high-quality toothbrushes or professional teeth whitening sessions.
4. Barriers Breakdown Section:
Create a segment dedicated to breaking down barriers towards affordable healthcare in Eastern Ontario or anywhere else relevant in your context. Invite speakers from existing organizations who work on these issues; let them share their challenges in reducing treatment costs & how individuals can contribute towards making dental care accessible.
5. Showcase Success Stories:
Allow testimonies of people who have received support from previous years’ events narrated at the ball. This kind of personal sharing would inspire optimism among attendees and further drive home why it’s so important to gather funds for this worthy cause – bettering patient care by ensuring they receive needed fillings, extractions or even getting a new set of dentures.
6. Auction Extravaganza:
An auction event can be held with items donated by individuals/organizations related to the dental industry such as branded electric toothbrushes, and teeth-whitening products/services etc., These auctions encourage guests’ participation while raising additional funds!
7. Volunteer Opportunities Board:
Having a board outlining various volunteer roles that need fulfilling through the upcoming year enables attendees to engage directly with the cause both during & post-event. Some roles could include volunteering at a community clinic offering routine checkups/procedures like filling cracked teeth etc.
8. Cocktail Hour/Diner:
Kick-off evening by offering cocktail hour followed by dinner personally curated by top chefs! During this time host live music performances creating a lively atmosphere and engaging patrons while mingling and discussing the importance behind gathering.
