Compassion Inside and Outside of the Office
Compassion is a core value at Donaldson & Guenther. It is with a great sense of thankfulness, responsibility, and privilege that we provide dental care, and as such, there are ways we try to give back.
The first way we give back is by not “cheaping out” on our patients. Our above average fees are first given back to our patients by using the best materials, dental lab technicians, and staff possible. We also take longer on patient appointments because excellence does not happen quickly or by accident. Details matter: We are convinced that practices that accept discounted reimbursement cannot afford to provide their patients with the same level of service.
As individuals, and as a group, we give back to a number of organizations. Many of the staff have gone with Dr. Donaldson and Dr. Guenther to Guatemala. For many years, we have done dental work and built homes for the Mayan indigenous people. In addition, Ann and her husband are long-term supporters for several Guatemalan children that they love dearly.
We continue to actively support the local, state, and national organizations listed below:
