This time a winning good deed video was submitted about the story of 4-year-old Kai Silva, who was awarded the grand prize, a brand new iPad, on Thursday June 18th in Dr Darj’s office.

Silva learned that his teacher had a caterpillar problem in her garden, and she was going to exterminate them. Together with his dad, Silva went on a rescue mission and put the caterpillars into jars. He helped them to grow and even brought them to school to show his friends how caterpillars could be helped. The caterpillars became butterflies and he released them.

“I was taught by my dad that every living thing deserves a chance, even bugs.” said Silva.

Dr. Darj said, “The compassion of caring for creepy crawlies, sometimes even a bug, is what makes this act of kindness so mindful. I am happy to see parents teaching the younger generation how all aspects of life can be helped.”

Dr. Darj also picked a 2nd place winner – Clarissa Gardea from El Paso. Gardea wrote an essay about her grandfather’s disability and how she helped him out with chores. She felt good that she was giving him guidance through a rough time.

The purpose of the contest is to inspire our youths to reach out to help another in times of need.

Mehrnoosh Darj

 

 

El Paso TX – El Paso dentist, Mehrnoosh Darj wants to encourage youths in her area to do good deeds in their community. By rewarding such behavior, Dr. Darj intends to strengthen their minds and teach them to be kind and compassionate when they grow into adults. She believes this to be the basis for a healthy and rewarding life.

Dr. Darj set out to accomplish this by launching a Good Deed Contest. The contest is accessible to any youth 18 years of age and under. Youths are urged to submit their good deed entries in essay or video format on her Facebook page or website. The winner will receive a new iPad.

All videos and essays need to be submitted by May 7th with the winner announced shortly thereafter. The contestants are encouraged to tell about a single good deed and explain what inspired them to do that. The deeds can be either small or large, from helping a classmate with their homework to volunteering at a homeless shelter. The contestants are encouraged to be creative, not only in their choice of good deeds but also in their videos or essays.

Darj’s philosophy is simple and based on the basic psychological approach of classical conditioning. Acknowledge good behavior in the present child’s life and the child will continue the kindness in the future.

Laser Teeth Whitening – El Paso Dentist

One of the most popular dental procedures people choose to have is laser whitening. When being introduced to new people, our smiles, and therefore our teeth, are one of the first things people will notice about us. Don’t let stained or discolored teeth stand in your way of feeling confident and social. Instead, having your teeth laser whitened is the perfect solution to this common problem.

Over time our teeth become stained after coming in contact with food and drinks such as black coffee and tea, cranberry juice, soda or tomato sauce among other items. These stains can make your teeth look yellow and dingy, and will draw people’s attention away from what you are saying and focus on your mouth. Luckily, there is a simple and safe teeth whitening procedure that can eliminate these embarrassing stains.

This easy and affordable whitening procedure involves a laser and a whitening gel. First, the clear bleaching gel is applied to the teeth. After the gal has been put on the teeth a laser light is used to activate the gel’s crystals. Once these crystals have been activated they will absorb the energy from the laser and use it to penetrate the teeth’s enamel, whitening the teeth. The length of this procedure depends on the degree of teeth discoloration you have. The best part is that it normally takes only one procedure to have a visibly whiter smile!
