Paradise Dental Teams Up With Lifebridge

lifebridge

Last week, on March 21st, we teamed up with the Lifebridge team to help provide a meal for the individuals at their shelter, which is in Salem, MA. We helped to feed 71 people and served Dr. Helyne’s Family-favorite recipe, chicken stir fry! When we were at the shelter last week, we had the opportunity to connect with Michael Lembo, the Operations Manager of Lifebridge, who has done many incredible things with this establishment.

The Work of Lifebridge in Salem, MA

Lifebridge is a campus that truly prides itself on being more than a shelter. Through their community-based approach, they have seen huge success in their end goals, targeting the need of homeless and disadvantaged adults, and helping these individuals to find permanent housing. They have found that there are two main factors that contribute the most heavily to the massive problem of homelessness. These two items are lack of affordable housing and persistence of poverty in our area. Boston and its surrounding areas have one of the highest cost of living in the country, and as a country, we find that 30/10000 people are homeless.

This all being said, Massachusetts has had one of the largest decreases in homelessness in the past year, with a reported 2,000 people that have made the transition into permanent living.

Lifebridge is a crucial aspect of the community, and they have done some amazing work in the past few years. They have said this in the past about how to successfully help with this problem:

“We believe that the way to solve this crisis one person at a time, is to provide housing with supportive services, to encourage personal and financial development, and stability in physical and mental health.”

How We Want to Help

We, at Paradise Dental Associates, have committed to volunteering and providing dinner in the Lifebridge Kitchen, once a quarter through 2018. We are dedicated to giving back to the community and fully support the efforts of Lifebridge and their continued outreach work. It takes a village.

I couldn't love Paradise Dental more! High tech, new facility with super friendly staff. Cindy is my hygienist and she is just awesome. Also, there hours are perfect for people who work full time! My appointment was at 7pm last night! Who loves their dentist???? This girl

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
Jessica O.
Amazing! Accommodating! you can express your fears and they will help you avoid/overcome them! Would recommend them to everyone! oh! and the best part, they have all the state of the art equipment to make the visit fast, painless and less frequent appointments!
