Did you know that nearly one half of the people in the world live on less than two dollars a day? As we struggle with skyrocketing food costs, rising living expenses and dwindling savings accounts, it's easy to forget those that are less fortunate than us. Although our circle of influence may not necessarily extend to everyone across the globe, we can still touch the lives of many people in our local community. The orthodontic profession is known for its altruism and philanthropy, frequently giving back to the community it serves. Many practices participate in community service projects, discount their orthodontic fees, care for Medicaid recipients, provide free treatment and give generously to special social and educational causes. We all have a soft spot in our hearts--especially for our home towns and neighborhoods. What are you doing in your own personal and work lives to enrich those around you?
