2019 was an amazing year for our practice! We celebrated 6 years of serving our Lewis Center community, opened the doors of our brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, and grew our North Orange family,including the addition of Dr. Hall as our second Associate Dentist!
Our Miles for Smiles 5K was a huge success, which meant the Free to Smile Foundation provided more cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries to children in need than ever! Thank you so much for your support! We also had our biggest turnout this year at our Give Kids A Smile Day, where we offered free exams,x-rays, cleanings, fluoride, and sealants to children without insurance.
We awarded our third annual $1,000 scholarship, and continued to sponsor events and community organizations, including Olentangy Berlin Athletics, the Cheshire Elementary FallFest, the Heritage Elementary Walkathon, the Olentangy Keynote Classic Show Choir Competition, Liberty Tree Elementary School Glow Run, Olentangy Orange Middle School’s Science and Career Day, and many more! We also spoke to over 150 kids at preschools and day cares about oral health tips.
This was our most award-winning year ever. We were honored to receive the Delaware County Foundation’s Outstanding Business Award for our charitable work in the community. We were also chosen again as a CBUS Top Pick, Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite, topDentist, and for the first year ever, a Best Place to Work in Central Ohio!
Our team also had some exciting life events this year! Three of our staff got married (Ly, Stacey, and Jordin), two got engaged (Elysa and Cortney), and Dr. Ellinger announced that she is expecting a baby boy in the new year!
Dr. Bogan joined the top 6% of dentists in the nation, being inducted as a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, and was chosen as the2020 President of the Columbus Dental Society. Dr. Bogan’s Talkin’ Teeth podcast won Ragan's Health Care PR and Marketing Awards “Best Podcast” award. He also appeared three times on Daytime Columbus!
None of this would have been possible without all of the endless support from our amazing community! We feel so lucky to serve you all. Thank you for all of the smiles. We hope to help make many more in the New Year!
