News From Our Irving, Texas Cosmetic Dental Practice
We believe in creating a relationship with our patients that goes beyond the office doors. We've specially created this section of our site to share with you important news from our Irving family dental practice.
Dr. Alicia Dwyer
Your Irving Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Dwyer’s office is beginning a new program combining her passion for dentistry with her love of education and books. Books for smiles is very similar to the Lending Library we have always provided. We have updated our books at the office to include novels, cookbooks, classics, children’s books and history.
Please donate your gently used books or make donations on-line to Texas Mission of Mercy. The Texas Mission of Mercy is a volunteer program for dentists, hygienist, assistants, students and many others to provide care to needy Texans in underserved areas. Dr. Dwyer has volunteered for many years. “It is so rewarding. I always receive much more than I give. The days can be long but it’s a good type of tired at the end of the day.”
The Book for Smiles program is simple:
Donate a book
Give a smile
Pick up a book and donate to www.tdasmiles.org and
Give a Smile.
On June 29, 2013 Dr. Dwyer was awarded the Academy of General Dentistry’s Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award at the AGD’s 2013 Convocation Ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee.
The LLSR is presented to AGD members who have gone above and beyond earning the association's highest honor of Mastership. To accomplish this recognition, Dr. Dwyer completed at least 1,600 hours of continuing dental education in 16 different dental disciplines. In addition, recipients must complete at least 100 hours of dental-related community or volunteer service. Dr. Dwyer volunteers with Texas Missions of Mercy and Smiles –on-Wheels events sponsored by the Texas Dental Association. She also volunteers with the Hopeful Smiles program of Attitudes and Attire in Dallas.
