Dr. Allyson and Dr. Jason carry forward a commitment to community service modeled by their parents. Dr. Allyson’s mother founded the annual fundraiser for the Stanislaus County Medical Alliance in her hometown of Modesto. Dr. Jason’s father finds funding and volunteers to provide fire clearance in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where his mom also volunteers as the community’s emergency response coordinator. Just as we are encouraged by our families to pay it forward, we encourage others to reach out as well.
Dr. Allyson began volunteering in Modesto at Evergreen Convalescent Home and became a life skills coach for the First Tee Golf Program. In college, she reached out globally, providing healthcare screenings for children in Oaxaca, Mexico for which she received a Child and Family Health International Humanitarian Award.
Dr. Jason’s volunteerism began in high school, where he volunteered at O’Connor and Good Samaritan Hospitals. He then worked with disadvantaged elementary schools to educate children on proper oral hygiene and healthy diets while in dental school.
Dr. Allyson and Dr. Jason’s newest community service goal is to implement an Oral Hygiene Care Day in local elementary schools. Our hope is to bring Healthy Smiles to a school near you.
Whether sailing and surfing in the Pacific Ocean, hiking and biking in the Santa Cruz Mountains, or golfing and frolfing at local courses, Dr. Allyson and Dr. Jason love living and raising a family in this beautiful community. To preserve Santa Cruz County’s natural treasures, they support California State Parks, the National Park Service, Save Our Shores, and Surfrider Foundation. In addition Drew Dental employs environmentally safe practices for which we received the Green Business Certification.
