Our dentists and team are heavily involved in community outreach programs and dedicated to caring for the individuals in our area. Every year, Bellevue Dentistry closes for a weekend and participates for four days in the Seattle King County Health Clinic. During this clinic, Drs. Mark DiRe and Marcus Flynn provide free dental care to people who struggle to access and afford oral health care.
In addition, our dentists have been (and continue to be) major supporters of The Assistance League of the Eastside by contributing thousands of oral health kits each year to their Operation School Bell program. Dr. DiRe was given their National Award in 2007. In 2018, we will donate another 4000 kits to be distributed to needy children in the Bellevue, Lake Washington and North Shore school districts. In all, this decade-long endeavor has resulted in over 40,000 dental hygiene kits delivered.
“This is a terrific program that we are honored to be a part of. The children are always excited for the start of the new school year with their new clothes, backpacks and dental kits all provided by the ALE!” — Mark DiRe.
