MINT dentistry’s goal of putting smiles on people’s faces doesn’t stop during a pandemic: To help a community in need, the dentistry practice is providing groceries for people who are experiencing food insecurity. More than 2,000 families have already benefited from the food donation boxes that have created 84,000 meals, and another grocery giveaway is planned for July 11. It’s all part of a commitment to serving the community from MINT dentistry founder Dr. Field Harrison and his wife, Sabrina, who feel compelled to do something to help those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and hope others are inspired to do the same. 
 
“We just want to do our part and try to help people out,” Dr. Harrison said. “Serving families by providing food is an honor--but providing them hope through that donation means even more.” 
 
The next grocery giveaway takes place Saturday, July 11, at the MINT dentistry in Bishop Arts at 2433 W Davis Street in Dallas from 9 to 10:30 a.m. 
 
During a grocery giveaway, more than 500 boxes of groceries purchased by MINT from Minnie’s Food Pantry are given away, each containing a week’s worth of food. People can simply line up in their vehicles to receive a box (touch-free, from volunteers wearing masks), and a message of hope. Each box contains a week’s worth of meals and includes non-perishable items like spaghetti, rice, peanut butter, canned goods and more. The box also contains something important for a healthy smile: a full-sized tube of toothpaste from MINT dentistry.  
 
If you or someone you know is in need of groceries, please join the MINT dentistry Grocery Giveaway on July 11. There is no need to sign up – just show up! Giving is first-come, first-served in a drive-thru style pick-up line with no contact (following CDC guidelines). Guests can check the @mintdentistry Instagram for updates on where the car line will start. 
 
As a result of the effects of COVID-19 on the economy and nation, one out of every six families in America is struggling with food insecurity. The global pandemic has put many individuals and businesses out of work and many are in need of weekly groceries to feed their own families. Through several weeks of grocery giveaways, MINT dentistry has provided more than 2,000 boxes of food to North Texans in need. 
 
Though the cause of hunger is serious, the grocery giveaway events have a celebratory vibe: MINT dentistry employs a local DJ to play music, volunteers dance while they assist, and volunteers hold signs with messages like “We Love You” in English and Spanish. There are smiles all around, waves from volunteers, and honks from appreciative recipients, who find something else in their box when they arrive home – a personal message from MINT dentistry that expresses best wishes and a prayer for the recipients of the box. 
 
“Our hearts broke when we saw news reports of the long lines of people who needed something as simple as a meal,” Sabrina Harrison said. “This is our opportunity to share a message of hope and love with everyone. We are grateful for our colleagues who have stepped in to help, too.”   
 
Through his community service and through his dental work, Dr. Harrison is passionate about healing pain—whether that’s dental pain, spiritual pain, mental pain, loss of dignity, or financial pain. Even before he graduated from dental school, Dr. Harrison was volunteering in a clinic offering free dental care in South Dallas, and traveling to Romania with other doctors and dentists to end a village's suffering with tooth and jaw pain. Dr. Harrison and Sabrina Harrison are devout Christians who welcome those of all faiths, and who believe strongly in giving back to their communities. 
 
MINT dentistry has more than 50 locations in Dallas and Houston, with skilled support staff that have introduced discount and dental insurance to thousands without insurance or those whose insurance has let them down.

MINT dentistry’s goal of putting smiles on people’s faces doesn’t stop during a pandemic: To help a community in need, the dentistry practice is providing groceries for people who are experiencing food insecurity. MINT dentistry founder Dr. Field Harrison and his wife, Sabrina Harrison, have joined employees and volunteers to give away boxes of groceries to people who line up in their cars at a MINT grocery giveaway, an initiative the dentistry practice has been doing on Saturdays for the past nine weeks. This week’s giveaway is at the MINT dentistry office in Cedar Hill, at 105 E. Belt Line Rd #900, Cedar Hill, Texas 75104 on Saturday, June 20, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. No I.D. necessary. 
 
“Need groceries? Just show up,” Dr. Harrison said. “We just wanted to do our very small part and try to help people out.” 
 
During the event, 500 plus boxes of groceries purchased by MINT from Minnie’s Food Pantry will be given away, each containing a week’s worth of food. People can simply line up in their vehicles to receive a box (touch-free, from volunteers wearing masks), and a message of hope.

Dr. Harrison and Sabrina have been shocked at reports on the news about all the people who have lost jobs and are hungry due to this pandemic. They immediately decided that they needed to help, and devised a plan for MINT dentistry to fund grocery giveaways from Minnie’s Food Pantry at MINT dentistry offices. Through several weeks of grocery giveaways, MINT dentistry has provided more than 3,500 boxes of food to local citizens in need. 
 
Though the cause of hunger is serious, the grocery giveaway events have a celebratory vibe: MINT dentistry employs DJ Slim to play music, volunteers dance while they assist, and people hold signs with messages like “We Love You.” There are smiles all around, waves from volunteers, and honks from appreciative recipients, who find something else in their box when they arrive home – a personal message from MINT dentistry that expresses best wishes and a prayer for the recipients of the box.

Since founding MINT dentistry with the conviction that outstanding dental care should be affordable to everyone, Dr. Harrison continues to give back, including providing free dental care to soldiers who've suffered grievous tooth and jaw injuries in combat. Dr. Harrison and Sabrina Harrison are devout Christians who welcome those of all faiths, and who believe strongly in giving back to their communities. 
 
MINT dentistry has also started offering more appointment availability by taking Saturday appointments. Because dentist offices were closed due to quarantine for so many weeks, many people are struggling to get in to see their dentist. To help provide availability to top-notch dental care, MINT dentistry has created additional appointment options to accommodate more patients. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, visit MINTdentistry.com or call 214-821-MINT

Mint Dentistry provides Grocery Giveaways on Saturday from 10:00 am - Noon

Since its opening in 2009, MINT dentistry has been at the forefront of every major advance in dentistry. MINT dentistry was among the first adopters of the new IMAX porcelain veneers, the first to introduce team dentistry, the first to combine iPads with movies and leather massage chairs, the first to take the fear out of dentistry, the first to offer luxury dentistry that is truly affordable, and the first to bring the price of veneers down to earth. MINT dentistry now has more than 50 locations in Dallas and Houston, with skilled support staff that have introduced discount and dental insurance to thousands without insurance or those whose insurance has let them down. MINT dentistry has been named the “Best Family Dentist” two years in a row by Consumer’s Choice and has earned more than 36,000 5-star Google reviews.

Cariloha to Open First North Texas Location in The Shops at Legacy

 

 The Shops at Legacy is pleased to welcome bamboo clothing, bedding and bath goods retailer Cariloha to the carefully curated retailer mix that constitutes Plano’s original lifestyle destination. The 1,428-square-foot store will be located at 7201 Bishop Road, Suite E11, between Scout & Molly’s and Cousin Earl. This will be the first Cariloha location in North Texas.

Cariloha will celebrate its grand opening on Sunday, August 25, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.  At the event, guests can enjoy complimentary bubbles and cookies, bamboo leis, and island-style music. The first 50 guests will receive a pair of Cariloha bamboo socks to kick-start their bamboo goods collection. All attendees will receive a scratch-off discount card for 10 to 20 percent off their purchase, as well as a chance to win other products including bamboo sheets, blankets, pillows and other items.

“Our guests are always looking for new ways to enhance their lifestyle,” Kelsey Ishmael, director of marketing for The Shops at Legacy, said. “Cariloha is a great example of an international company bringing something new to Plano with a line of products based on a green, renewable resource.”

The only retail store in Plano exclusively selling bedding and bath goods made from eco-friendly bamboo, Cariloha offers guests the chance to touch and feel the bamboo-soft difference in the bed sheets, towels, mattresses and apparel that the company offers. Bamboo is twice as soft to the touch as cotton; it keeps you up to three degrees cooler than cotton; and is naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic and repels odor – all of which comes in handy on a hot day.

“When you think of bamboo, large green shoots in the jungle somewhere likely come to mind,” said Jeff Pedersen, Cariloha president and CEO. “Not many people know that bamboo can actually be husked and separated into ultra-soft fabric for making apparel and other goods at little-to-no risk on the environment. In fact, some species of bamboo can grow up to four feet per day. It’s one of the most renewable resources on the planet.”

Cariloha Plano is a family operation with four owners, Charles and Becky Burke and Kevin and Kristen Skiles. Charles and Becky first discovered Cariloha while cruising the Caribbean and shopping while docked at port. Before they were even home from vacation, they made a plan to open a Cariloha store in Austin, Texas, knowing their neighbors would appreciate the softer, cooler, and cleaner products just as much as they do. A year and a half later, they convinced daughter Kristen and son-in-law Kevin to partner and open a second store, this one in Plano.
