Palace Resorts philanthropic organization teams up with visiting dentists for the greater good.
Fundación Palace (Palace Foundation), Palace Resorts’ nonprofit organization, recently hosted Dental Week in Cancun, an initiative focused on dental health for the local community. The event, led by FundaciónPalace director Daniela Vargas, was brought to life through the generosity and support of repeat Palace Resort guests and dentists, Dr. Alfred Burns and Dr. Robert Davis. Both have the same passion for their careers as dentists, and just like Palace Resorts, they have a love for the community. They take pride in giving back to employees who have worked so hard to make sure they have the best time when they visit a Palace Resorts property.
The goal of Dental Week is to identify common problems, offer treatment, and educate the community on how to care for and preserve their dental health. Both doctors donated their time and expertise for complimentary dental screenings and exams as well as dental cleaning. Only in its second year, the initiative doubled the patients they assisted, caring for approximately 600 people—Palace Resorts employees as well as members of the local community. The doctors also brought along more than 10 volunteers to help them make this event such a success.
