Giving Back

A huge part of who we are at Houska Dental Center involves caring and concern. That’s why in addition to caring for our patients while in the office, we are committed to caring for our community. As individuals and as a team, every member of our office is involved in community service. It’s what we do! From donating our care to underprivileged children and needy senior citizens to educating children in the classroom, from supporting community service organizations to helping young adults realize career goals in dentistry, from letter writing campaigns and package deliveries to support our troops overseas to holding fund raisers for the Goodfellow fund we have dedicated ourselves to helping others. Some of the projects we are/have been involved in:
