As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, the staff at the DentaQuest Oral Health Center and DentaQuest Institute also considered the needs of families in our community and hosted a food collection on behalf of Westborough Cares.
This Westborough food pantry provides supplemental food support for approximately 90 -100 Westborough families every week. Last year, Westborough Cares provided over 50 tons of food and they expect the number will be higher this year. “The food pantry is a vital safety net resource for families in need in our area. We are reminded that good nutrition is very important in supporting a person’s oral health,” said Dr. Rob Compton, President of DentaQuest Oral Health Center and the DentaQuest Institute.
The DentaQuest team is honored to support the work of Westborough Cares with a contribution of 71.3 lb of foods and paper goods.
