Dr. Nushin Shir, owner of Artistic Center for Dentistry, is celebrating Earth Month by offering 120 new patients free comprehensive dental exams that will include basic teeth cleaning services and limited check up x-rays.

The Artistic Center for Dentistry partnered with Heal the Bay to promote the importance of making Southern California’s coastal waters and watersheds safe, healthy, and clean, while fostering a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future. The center itself subscribes to this philosophy and is doing its part to minimize its carbon footprint by going paperless, reducing its waste by eliminating the use of plastic products, using digital x-rays which eliminates hazardous chemicals that ultimately contaminate the waterways.

“In these tough economic times where many families are hurting, the charitable contribution to nonprofits and their important missions has fallen significantly,” Shir said. “This is an ideal time to repay the support I have received from the community and to give back to one of the most important causes in Santa Monica, Heal the Bay.”

Shir is committed to improving the local environment in the community to create a cleaner, safe place to live and work.

“Support from third parties, such as Artistic Center for Dentistry, are key to promoting greater awareness, broadening our member base, and generating funds to support our research, education, community action and advocacy,” said Natalie Burdick, Heal the Bay’s constituent development manager. “We are excited to be able partner with Dr. Shir on a health program that offers free dental exams to members of our local community.”

The special runs from April 1-30. In exchange for free dental treatment, the practice is asking that all patients donate $10 to support this outreach campaign.

Artistic Center for Dentistry is located at 1531 Sixth St., Ste. 100. For more information, call (310) 393-2300.
