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.

“We were able to treat a total of about 200 patients offering them various procedures ranging from dental fillings to extractions and cleanings,” said Dr. Darj. “At the end of our last event, there were more people beyond our capacity to see. We gave rain checks for them to come back.”

“I am fortunate to have a job that entails bringing smiles to patients on a daily basis by getting rid of pain and improve their oral health as well as their appearance,” said the El Paso dentist.

In addition to free dental days, Dr Darj has also held numerous community events including food drives and also Do A Good Deed contests, which inspired youths to focus on performing good deeds. Children 18 years old and younger can enroll by visiting dentistryelpasotx.com.

“I would like to do my part as a dentist to help and hope other healthcare providers would join me and organize a similar effort in their community to help keep our fellow Americans healthy.” explained Dr. Darj.
