Geoff Thomas Dental Manly Supports Community Northern Beaches

Geoff Thomas and his team didn't hesitate when approached by Kym from Community Northern Beaches recently for a contribution. They generously donated 10 x 1 hour dental treatments to assist our homeless and domestic violence clients who may be in urgent need of treatment on their teeth. We are incredibly grateful for this invaluable support so close to our hub, as many clients do not have the means to travel a distance for this kind of treatment, let alone the means to pay for it.

Geoff Thomas Dental have already helped two of our clients with urgent and painful dental issues; many thanks to Dr Stephen Neeson for treating them. They were both very happy and relieved afterward their visits.

For some, what happens behind closed doors is often a very different reality.
