And Flushing Dentists? Preferred Dental Care was there with a table and tent handing out goody bags to all contestants, and contributed to the prizes to be awarded to the winners. Also out to show their support were local merchants including Walgreens and Duane Reade – handing out snacks and gifts. New York State Assemblyman, Rory Lancman was also there to support the art festival.
Flushing Dentist, Dr. Shilpa Trivedi, owner of Preferred Dental Care, said “I consider each member of my dental team to be an artist – every day we are creating beautiful smiles. The joy of creating beauty comes in many forms, and we encourage it. Flushing, and Kissena Park, are my home and neighborhood. My kids are growing up here. We love the park and our neighbors, and to see kids of all ages out on a pretty day creating art by the lake is a wonderful experience. Art is a healthy way for anyone to express themselves and share their creativity, not to mention that some of the participants were creating works of timeless beauty. I thank the Kissena Park Civic Association for this wonderful event.”
Preferred Dental Care has gained a reputation for being strong supporters of the community and non-profit causes such as Toys for Tots, Shoes for Haiti, New York City Food Drive, The Way to Happiness Foundation and many others. They have built it into the culture of the dental office to be involved, and to “care for people...not just teeth.” Their concern for improving the borough of Queens was recognized by About.com when they were named the Best Dental Office in Queens, and there are no signs of slowing down for this expanding dental office or the city it represents.
Preferred Dental Care is a full-service dental office at 146-10 45th Avenue, Flushing, NY 11355 (between Parsons and Kissena Blvd, across from Flushing Hospital). For more information on Preferred Dental Care and Dr. Shilpa Trivedi please call 718-445-7600 or visit http://www.preferreddentalcare.net
