DentServ Requests Donations Be Delivered to Its New York Headquarters by Thursday, August 25 for Shipment to Louisiana

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2016) - DentServ Dental Services, P.C. (DentServ), New York State's premier provider of contractual dental services for the healthcare community, has organized a New York campaign to provide emergency relief supplies to the citizens of flood ravaged Louisiana and is asking for immediate community support for those efforts.

DentServ, a provider of quality, comprehensive dental services to facilities, clinics and health organizations since 1981, will be shipping thousands of oral hygiene kits this week to Louisiana residents in need, including a toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash and other items.

To complement its oral hygiene kits, DentServ is urgently requesting donations of the following necessity items -- recommended by the Salvation Army -- be delivered immediately to its company headquarters at 15 Canal Rd., Pelham Manor, N.Y. (10803):

*bottled water   *paper towels

*mops   *hygiene items (soap, deodorant, toilet paper,
*brooms   tooth paste, tooth brushes, etc.)
*masks   *baby items (diapers, formula, baby powder,
*gloves   bottles, pacifiers, etc.)

"There are literally thousands of men, women and children in Louisiana who have lost everything and their pain and suffering knows no boundaries," says Chief Operating Officer Isaac Newman of DentServ, which brings knowledge and expertise to meeting the unique dental requirements of adults, elders and special needs populations who reside in nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. "It is incumbent on everyone to do whatever we can to help those in need.

"For 35 years, DentServ has taken pride in providing care for the needy, the elderly and those unable to fend for themselves," adds Newman. "It's with that same mindset that we felt a moral and natural obligation to pitch in to help our brothers and sisters in Louisiana; they would certainly do the same for us. We sincerely appreciate the public's compassion and generosity in helping us support the resilient Louisiana flood victims."

Newman says DentServ expects all donated essential emergency relief supplies, along with its oral hygiene kits, to be shipped by no later than Thursday, Aug. 25, and requests all donations be delivered as soon as possible.
