Pay It Forward Initiative

Dentistry by Design is dedicated to giving back to our community and supporting those individuals that do the same.  That is why we are bringing back our Pay It Forward Initiative. We need your help to once again identify and celebrate the unsung heroes in our community who are selflessly giving back to make Door County a better place.

If you know a deserving person(s), email their contact information and a brief overview of their community involvement and why you think they deserve to be recognized to  Quarterly winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card to use as they wish, a $100 donation to a Door County charity or non-profit of their choice, and may be featured in our quarterly print and e-newsletters and blog.

Please help us pay it forward by celebrating the wonderful people in our community by sending in your submissions today. Thank You!

(DBD staff will review submissions and select one person per quarter. This person and their story may be featured in our quarterly print and e-newsletters as well as on our blog. Submissions can be sent at any time and DBD reserves the right to select individuals based on the stories submitted. Nominees must be a Door County resident to be considered. If multiple people are nominated in one submission (couple, team of teachers, etc…) and that submission is selected, only one $100 Visa gift card will be awarded and one $100 donation made in their name.)


Volunteer Workday

Each quarter the Dentistry by Design team has a volunteer workday. On this day our team volunteers their time and expertise to provide dental services to our patients. We set aside the earnings from this day and distribute the cash to local charities/groups previously agreed upon by our team. Because our team volunteers their time, our largest cost is eliminated, which allows us to give a more impactful donation.

Our team collectively chose to donate the money earned from our last volunteer workday to the 4K and 5K teachers at the five schools in Door County. We are proud that we were able to donate close to $150 to each of the twenty-seven teachers in the county, who were able to use the money in their classroom in a way that they felt would positively impact their students.

In the past we have donated to local individuals in need, the Go Bo Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bark for Life, Door County Community Foundation and other local organizations.
