Hogan Family Dental was recently recognized by the Montana Dental Association for their donated dental treatment and public health outreach for Eastern Montana children. David Hemion, executive director of the Montana Dental Association commented:
“Through their commitment to charitable care for those most in need, Drs. Eric and Robin Hogan and their dental team at Hogan Family Dentistry are an inspiration to dentists across the state. The MDA is proud of the example they set for all healthcare providers to do what they can for those who have so little.”
Committed to Oral Hygiene
Drs. Eric and Robin Hogan have always been committed to treating smiles at a young age and believe that the sooner a healthy oral hygiene routine begins the better – no time is too early. The Hogan’s commitment to this is evident by their oral health presentations in local schools and by the number of “free” dental days they have offered to Eastern Montana children. To date, over $144,000 in dental treatment has been rendered to local children at no charge to the family. Drs. Robin and Eric Hogan have participated in both the national “Give Kids A Smile Day” (hosted by the American Dental Association) in February as well as the “Smile Savers” (hosted by Holy Rosary Healthcare Foundation) program on other days throughout the year. Additionally, Hogan Family Dental works closely with the team at St. Vincent’s Healthcare in order to facilitate treatment for children throughout the year at the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
Committed to Early Education
Dr. Robin Hogan is also committed to providing oral health education in the school setting. She has taught children aged (pre-k-2nd grade) in all area schools for the last five years. Her presentation consists of a variety of visual aids, science experiments, songs, and handouts to enhance learning at home.
“The children and teachers alike seem to enjoy the time I spend in the schools. I have always been welcomed back. I love it when the little ones come up after and tell me all of their “tooth stories”. We have a great time together!” reports Dr. Robin Hogan.
