Dr. Angela Giving Back This Holiday Season!
We love dressing up in our office throughout the holiday season. But what Dr. Angela truly loves about the holidays is the opprotunity to give back! This year, Dr. Angela chose one family and one classroom to give gifts to! It’s such a fun time giving presents to the kids and so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces!
Dr. Angela’s Created a Scholarship!
How amazing is this? Dr. Angela created a scholarship as a tribute to her late father, Anthony Lee Austin. Mr. Austin insisted that education was not optional, but a beautiful gift we must treasure and cultivate.
The scholarship this year was awarded to an amazing student at TC Williams High School. She will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University studying theater!

Cora Kelley Science Fair
#TeamACD had a great time at the Cora Kelley Science Fair! Our experiment showed the effects of bad drinks vs. good drinks on your teeth! We used vinegar to represent sugary drinks and sodas! The vinegar showed how acidic drinks (like soda and anything sugary) result in enamel defects! Remember: water and milk are the safest drinks for your teeth!

“GKAS truly helps to set the foundation for young children to have a healthy lifelong dental experience,” said Give Kids A Smile Program Chairman Dr. Ashkan Ghaffari. “Each year, we treat young children who generally do not have dental care available to them. This year, approximately 100 volunteers demonstrated good hygiene practices for each child to learn. When the children walk in, we can always tell they are nervous about what to expect, but after they’re treated, it’s amazing to see them walk away with such huge smiles, expressing how much fun they had.”
