September 2018

Happy Trails

Allan W. Stevenson, DDS General Dentist 205 W. Highway 95, Parma, ID 83660


This summer has been an exciting one both at work and home. It kicked off with us waving goodbye to Lydia as she left for her mission in Lubbock, Texas. Before she left, she was nervous and excited. As she’s settled in, however, the scales have definitely tipped in favor of excitement. I can’t wait to hear about all of her adventures over the course of the next 18 months. We always know back-to-school is on the horizon when Eliza and Ellie begin cross-country practice. One of my favorite events this time of year is the team relay during preseason cross-country in August. I’d like to thank team members who help me hold my own while participating in the relay. I like to run, and training alongside my girls’ cross-country team helps my own training. It’s something we do together. I like to think I’m in as good shape as my daughters. Speaking of awesome August events, we recently held our annual patient appreciation night at the Parma Motor-Vu. You can find some photos of the event inside this issue, but let me just say that we had an absolute blast. It’s always a joy to interact with patients outside the office and have a little fun. Fall is shaping up to be just as busy as summer was, with two more exciting events. First, on Sept. 7 and 8, we held our Charity Yard Sale at Old Fort Boise Park. All of the proceeds will benefit our dental mission trip to Guatemala next year. We’re so grateful for the help of Loyal To One Ministry, an area secondhand store that donated a number of awesome objects for our sale. Our 2 Fall Events That Celebrate Great Causes

patients and team members have also brought in some unique items. If you missed the event, we are still accepting cash donations or items for newborns and hygiene kits. On Oct. 12, we have our third annual Stars, Stripes, and Smiles day. The event is a day of free dentistry for active-duty servicepeople and veterans and their families. You can book an appointment for the event today. We try to treat as many people as possible, but spaces fill up quickly. One important thing to note is that if you think you may need extensive treatment, you should come in before Stars, Stripes, and Smiles and take advantage of our New Patient Special. That way, you’ll get the most bang for your buck on the day of the event. We participate in Stars, Stripes, and Smiles as a way to express our gratitude to the heroes who selflessly devote their lives to protecting our country and its values. It’s always one of our most memorable days of the year, and I’m certain the 2018 event will be no different. In closing, I want to thank everyone who has participated in any of our events this year. We are extremely flattered and humbled to serve a wonderful community of patients. It might sound like a cliché, but we wouldn’t be here without you.

Have a wonderful back-to-school season, everybody. I hope to see you at one of our events in the coming months.
