Offering Hope and Joy

San José Clinic sponsors several activities throughout the year to assist patients, including:

Back to School Festival
Give Kids a Smile Day
Sealants Across Texas
Children's Easter Party
Patient Christmas Party

 

 

Back to School Festival

The Back to School Festival helps supply children from San José Clinic families, pre-kindergarten to 6th grade, with necessary school-related materials, including school clothing and class supplies. Generous donations from individuals, corporations and community groups support this program. The Back to School Festival is held each August. See photos of our 2013 event here.

Give Kids a Smile Day
Give Kids a Smile Day is an annual event spotlighting National Children's Dental Health Month. The event focuses on providing oral health education, as well as preventative and restorative care to all children despite economic status. San José Clinic collaborates with the Greater Houston Dental Society and The University of Texas Dental Branch to provide this service held at the Dental School.

Sealants Across Texas
Sealants Across Texas occurs twice a year. Through this program, San José Clinic works with the Greater Houston Hygienists' Society to provide sealants to children ages five to 18 years. Statewide, the Texas Dental Hygienists' Association (TDHA) is dedicated to delivering quality dental hygiene services to the citizens of Texas. Each year, licensed, registered dental hygienists from across the state volunteer to provide dental sealants to children in under-served populations.

Children's Easter Party
Each year together with the Charity Guild of Catholic Women, the clinic throws an Easter party for our littlest patients - those between 3 and 8 years old. The bash features treats and games.

Patient Christmas Party
This oldest patient program began in the Clinic's early years and has become a Christmas tradition for Clinic patients and staff. The Christmas Party is fun for the whole family, many of which don't have the means to provide children with gifts. Those who are invited to the party are among the neediest families of the Clinic.

Families who attend the event enjoy musical entertainment, games and party treats before receiving gifts from Santa Claus and his volunteer elves. They experience a fun and special day at the Clinic and leave with a keepsake family picture with Santa and hope for a memorable Christmas. The Clinic receives support from many individuals, companies and community groups that sponsor gift drives and volunteer on the day of the party.
