Palm Desert CA Dentist is offering Patients 90 Percent Discount on Services

Dr. Marc LeBlanc is organizing a Food Drive this summer to put smiles on the faces of some needy families in his community.

Dr. LeBlanc, in an effort to give back to the community, is promoting a “Let’s Help Card” Special. This event is designed to help people who, because of the economy, may have lost their insurance or not have the funds to pay for a dental visit, which is very important to their health.

The “Let’s Help Card” gives patients a complete dental exam, cleaning and a full set of X-rays for $39.00 and all the proceeds will be donated to the DESERT SANDS UNIFIED HEADSTART PROGRAM.

“We will be conducting similar specials periodically throughout the year to help the less fortunate in our community,” explains Dr. LeBlanc.

This special incentive which benefits the less fortunate of Palm Desert CA and surrounding communities will expire on Aug 31, 2011.
