UNLEYLIFE 29 There has been a whole lot of clowning around at Dentistry on Unley, and kids, young, and young- at-heart, are loving it! It may be one of Adelaide’s oldest dental practices, but the Dentistry on Unley team enjoys dressing up on special occasions to enter tain their patients. The practice holds regular Kids Days for first time junior visitors and an annual Charity Day where the staff work in some weird and wonderful costumes and volunteer their time to raise money for those in need. The practice, which began in 1919 as Unley Family Dental Centre, held this year’s Charity Day on the third anniversary at their new premises on Unley Road. The sleek, modern environment holds the very latest Cerec machine allowing them to make crowns and ceramic restorations while patients wait and is unrecognisable from its former days as the Tandoori Oven. This year the practice will help China’s abandoned and disabled children through the International China Concern (chinaconcern.org) and local seriously ill children through the Lit tle Heroes Foundation (littleheroesfoundation. com.au). Patients are also invited to donate to the nominated charities and money raised is shared bet ween t wo charities. Previous year’s donations of around $5 000 have supported Birthing Kit Foundation Australia, Mercy International, Adelaide Day Centre and the Kyabir wa Primary School in Uganda. Dentistry on Unley hygienists also venture out of their practice with goodie bags and fun activities to teach children the importance of oral health at local schools.
