Seedco was featured in local news in Memphis for our Making Memphis Smile event this week.
In partnership with Concorde Career College and Heartland Dental, Seedco celebrated National Children’s Dental Health Month by inviting children to get free dental cleanings from Concorde students under supervision of professional dentists. Over 100 children received free dental cleaning and x-rays.
Marla Smith-Brown, the Senior Director of our Mid-South Regional Office was quoted in the article saying “It is so important for our children to have great health care. Dental care is a primary focus of that. Concord and Heartland Dental are helping us in that process. And we’re here to serve the community.”
