Today we paid it forward...one of our patients told us she was making Easter baskets for some of the local perishes in the area. She asked if we would be interested in helping out by donating some samples, and of course we were happy to! I hope they enjoy the toothpaste samples! Happy Easter from Bay View Dental Care.
