El Paso Dentist Rewards Good Deeds From Youths

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.

“The kids of today need to feel significance through new achievements. A good deed project builds a sense of altruism and significance.” says Dr. Darj, “If we can start early in helping the youth of today choose between right and wrong, then the possibilities are endless.”

El Paso dentist Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj will be providing free emergency dental care to help the under-served in the community during February Dental Health month.

The Free Emergency Dental Care Clinics will be held in each of her 3 dental locations as follows:

Feb. 20th, 2015 from 8am-3pm at 10760 North Loop Dr Ste 3A, Socorro, TX 79927

March 14th, 2015 from 8am-3pm at 1861 Robert Wynn St Ste D, El Paso, TX 79936

Realizing that many people are struggling in the current economy, Affordable Dental Associates’ owner Dr. Darj wants to give residents an opportunity to take care of dental problems before they become more serious, and more costly.

Free dental services, including fillings, dental cleanings, extractions, toothache treatments, and more, will be provided to as many people as can be seen beginning at8am and ending at 3pm, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Dr. Darj sees many patients a month. Yet, according to her, “We see an amazing number of people who come to us with large dental problems which could have been prevented if they would take simple steps of dental care regularly. This event serves to increase dental awareness in our community as well.”

Dr. Darj considers the cost of the giveaway in staff time and supplies as a “give-back” to the community. “I have been practicing here for many years. This is my home and I like to see the residents here get the help they need.” said Dr Darj.

“I would like to ask everyone to help spread the word to anyone who needs help with his/her oral health and will benefit from the event.” Dr. Darj added.

In addition to the free dental days, Dr. Darj is organizing a special event for the young members of her community too. The Do A Good Deed contest is open to any youth 18 years-old or younger, with the purpose of encouraging the young generation to make correct moral choices in life. Dr. Darj is urging kids to submit an essay about a good deed they did and the winner will be awarded with an iPad.

El Paso dentist, Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj is raising donations for a local food pantry and helping people improve their dental health by lowering their dental bill.

A report from The New York Times revealed the trend of Americans delaying health treatments even if they are insured. The reason behind this is an economic reason: many insured could not afford the co-payments

Dr. Darj who is a practicing dentist in the El Paso area knows that this delay of treatment usually leads to bigger health problems. Delayed dental care can easily lead to gum diseases which then could cause weakened immune problems, leading to heart, lung and liver diseases. Even pregnant mothers could have still-born or pre-mature babies due to gum diseases.

At the same time, how could a person see a dentist if he or she could not even afford three square meals a day?

Dr Darj explained, “It is a growing problem. Food demands at the local food pantries have increased and yet food donations have decreased.”

“Among the hungry in America are 16 million children. This is very alarming.” said Dr Darj, dentist El Paso.

With some long thinking, she came out with an idea to help in both areas: help Americans with dental care and also assist the local food pantries.

Dr Darj is encouraging her patients to bring non-perishable food donations, and offering the dental cleaning, exam and x-rays for only $39. And all of the $39 and food will go to the local food bank: El Pasoans Fighting Hunger.

When asked why she would give such a discount and donate all the proceeds, Dr Darj said, “Local communities are strong not because of money but because of the free spirit of helping one’s neighbors. In a troubled economy that affects many Americans, if I could get the public to help the hungry families while getting their basic dental work done, why not?”

The campaign spearheaded by Dr. Darj to benefit people in need of dental care as well as providing more donations to the local food bank will end on February 10, 2015.

“I would like to ask everyone who now knows about our program to spread the word to their friends and neighbors. The more people know about this effort, the more needy families can receive aid.” El Paso TX dentist Dr. Darj concluded.
