Spodak Dental Group on Charity and Community Involvement

Businesses are operating a lot differently today than they were fifteen years ago. Where you may have heard “spend, spend, spend!” in the late 90’s and at the turn of the 20th century, you’re now hearing “save, reduce, conserve!” Unfortunately, not-for-profit agencies and charities have witnessed a sharp decline in philanthropic support as a result of these recent changes in the economic climate. Giant corporate marketing strategists as well as owners of small to medium sized businesses are spending less and less money on “giving back” and more an more on staying afloat. Local Delray Beach dental practice, the Spodak Dental Group, is doing their part to help reverse this trend.

Founded in 1976 by Dr. Myles Spodak, the Spodak Dental Group looks at the economy from a different perspective, especially in concerns to charity. “You can’t always do the most financially sound thing if it means ignoring your social responsibilities to your community. Our practice would have never survived the thirty plus years it has if we had turned our back on our community just because the economy was going haywire” says Marketing Director Tanner Campbell. “Our team is comprised of an amazing group of people, all of whom hold each other accountable as human beings. If any one of us ever suggested giving up our charity goals just to save money there would be a riot in the practice. No one at Spodak Dental is in it for the money, that’s just not how we work here.”

Unlike many other businesses, the charitable and community activities that the Spodak Dental Group participates in are decided completely by the practice team members. “We jump at the opportunity to get physically involved in everything,” says Dr. Tiffany Peterson, one of Spodak Dental Group’s general dentists, as well as their Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce representative. “Building houses for Habitat for Humanity, racing for Susan G. Komen, fundraising for the Delray Beach Milagro Center, walking for Autism Speaks, and of course sponsorship of local events are just a sample of the ways we stay involved. We want to help for the sake of helping. We do all we can to get out there, and we’re active with some really great organizations.”

In 2010, Spodak Dental Group donated over $70,000 to national and local charities. “Whatever you give comes back tenfold in return” remarks Dr. Craig Spodak. “It’s why we work so hard to give our patients the highest standard of care and the best experience possible, and it’s why we extend that spirit to our local community. Our business is about building relationships and keeping people healthy; and when the well -being of others is the primary focus of a business, the rest just falls into place.”

March 6th, 2011 – Spodak Dental Group helped sponsor, and participated in, a walk for Autism Speaks in West Palm Beach, Florida. Centennial Square.

Spodak Dental Group is proud to be the 2010 – 2011 Delray Beach Business of the Year recipient. We offer comprehensive dental care (general, periodontal, maxillofacial) in one singular setting.
