“Share Your Love of Reading, Don’t Just Buy a Book, Donate One Too.”
In May of 2023, our office was proud to be the organizing sponsor for the “Give Kids A Book Drive”, held at our locations ( Dallas Dental Smiles and Hiram Dental Smiles).

We want to express our deepest gratitude to our staff, patients, local businesses and neighbors who demonstrated overwhelming support of the book drive with more than 500 books donated. We were able to donate the books we collected to local schools, local libraries and to schools in India.

The idea for the book drive originated when Dr.Gudipati asked his two children to donate the books they were no longer reading, to someone less fortunate. He was very proudly surprised when his children took it a step further and donated more than 20 books! Dr. Gudipati’s children’s kind gesture and desire to share their love of reading with others, sparked a wonderful idea. Dr Gudipati wanted to expand upon the kindness his children had demonstrated and collect books from our own team members, their children, our neighbors and businesses in the local community, as well as, our own awesome patients. Over the course of our book drive we were able to collect more than 500 books!

In May of 2023, while traveling to India for vacation with his family, Dr. Gudipati and his children donated hundreds of the books collected to local elementary school children. Books are not always affordable for children in India, so the generous donation of so many books, provided many children the opportunity to experience the education, entertainment and joy that only reading can provide. Dr.Gudipati felt an overwhelming sense of pride in our community, as he witnessed the joy in the eyes of the young recipients, when they realized the books they were receiving were theirs to keep for their very own.

The donation of these books from our staff, their families, local businesses and neighbors provided many underprivileged children with the gift of learning, the opportunity to experience the joy of reading, while also setting an example of recycling and preserving the environment. It was a win/win for the recipients, as well as the donors!

Thanks again to our wonderful team and all our awesome patients who donated and made this event a great success!
