At Hakala Family Dentistry we work hard but we like to have fun, too. Suzi's treatment room is filled with Denver Broncos memorabilia, as well as Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets items. Jaime and Roxanne are Kansas City Chiefs fans, so there is more than a bit of teasing during football season. And Jaime has a Halloween birthday, so October is a very special month at our office.
Our office provides dental care through Donate Dental Services on a regular basis, and we participate in the annual Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM), where dentistry is provided free of charge for one weekend each fall.
Dr. Kate, Jaime, and Suzi have been to Guatemala to provide dentistry to indigenous families and hope to go again next year. The trips to Guatemala are organized by Helps International, which is a charity based in Texas. Helps provides medical and dental care as well as water filters and efficient cooking stoves, with 12 teams based in various parts of the US. The team we travel with is called the Cascade Medical Team and is based in Eugene, Oregon. Many of the team members are University of Oregon Ducks fans, but we love them anyway.
