Monroe Cosmetic Dental Office Will Join in Race for the Cure

MONROE, LA--(Marketwired - August 24, 2015) - The dental staff of Bayou Dental Group will participate in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure set for Sept. 19 in Monroe.

Bayou Dental Group is owned and operated by Dr. David Finley, a leading cosmetic dentist. Dr. Finley is one of the sponsors for the event. Several of his staff members will be participating in the events, including the 5K timed race and the adult untimed race.

"My staff and patients have looked forward to this event all summer, and we’re excited to participate and help this tremendous organization however we can," Dr. Finley said. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is held in cities across the country. The Susan G. Komen organization is dedicated to raising awareness and money for breast cancer and breast cancer awareness.

Bayou Dental Group will have a booth during the event and have special giveaways throughout the day. The event, which will be held at Forsythe Park in Monroe, begins at 8 a.m., with the race starting at 8:30 a.m. The foundation has a goal to raise $240,000 during this year’s event.

Local community members can still sign up for the race or donate at the local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure website.

"This is a fun way for us to give back to the community," Dr. Finley said. "Our staff will be dressed in all of their pink attire to support this worthy cause."

There are fewer than 30 dentists in the world who hold both fellowships. He has been voted as one of America’s Top Dentists by the Consumer Research Council of America every year since 2003.
