Lumino Day 2014

KidsCan Lumino Day 2014For the second year running, Lumino The Dentists and KidsCan team up for one day to provide free dental treatments. 

Twenty-five Lumino practices across New Zealand, from Kaitaia to Dunedin, will be opening their doors on Saturday 14 June 2014 to KidsCan families, with Lumino’s dentists, hygienists and support staff all pitching in with the goal of  treating more than 500 patients on the day. The value of this basic dental treatment is expected to exceed $150,000.

The success stories from KidsCan Lumino Day 2013, proved that this initiative was well received by both the Lumino practices and the many families that received the dental treatment. Many of the practices who were involved last year are participating again, with a few new additions this year, and are all very excited to be part of this great initiative.  

Lumino City Dental’s Lead Dentist Dr Andrea Shepperson, participates again this year. “Last year’s Lumino Day was an incredible opportunity for us to not only provide a helping hand, but also educate people on the importance of oral hygiene and maintaining a smile for life” says Dr Shepperson. “We are looking forward to being involved in Lumino Day again and helping KidsCan families in our local communities.”

Last year, the inaugural KidsCan Lumino Day provided almost $130,000 worth of free dental treatments provided to adult family members of children at participating KidsCan schools. The success of the first KidsCan Lumino Day means that there is much anticipation for this year’s event on 14 June, 2014. 

The aim for Lumino Day 2014 is to grow the number of patients receiving dental treatments on the day, to ensure more families get the help they need.

“Dental treatment is often at the bottom of the list for households who are struggling to make ends meet,” says KidsCan’s GM Marketing and Fundraising, Jan Clark. “That’s why KidsCan Lumino Day is aimed at helping the parents and adult family members of our KidsCan kids. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to help families in our community’s access high quality dental treatment, for free”. 

Marketing Manager for Lumino The Dentists, Kerry Dunphy, says, “the first Lumino Day was an incredibly uplifting experience and we were so humbled by the people we met and were able to help on Lumino Day. There was so much positive feedback from patients who had sometimes put off having dental treatment for months and even years. We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with KidsCan and hold Lumino Day again.”
