Our Community Impact
Both Dr. Mai and Dr. Perlman have a passion for community involvement and giving back. Each year, Dr. Perlman participates in Pelotonia®—a tradition that started during his first year of dental school. Pelotonia is a bicycle tour that helps raise money for cancer research on a yearly basis. For three years, he served as captain of the dental school team and continues to either participate directly or make a donation every year since. Dr. Mai is no stranger to charity events, either. She traveled to Latin America with PODEMOS, a team of both dental and medical students and professionals, to provide free dental treatment to impoverished communities who didn’t have the means to afford quality care.
Since settling in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Mai and Dr. Perlman have been focusing on providing free dental screenings to children in local school districts who don’t have access to consistent dental care. Additionally, they work with Expanding Your Horizons Network to encourage young women to enter careers in either science, technology, engineering, or math (S.T.E.M.). Dr. Mai also actively collaborates with Union Gospel Mission Dental Clinic and Medical Teams International Mobile Dental Clinic to provide the homeless and uninsured members of our community with free dental care.
We understand the impact we can have when we support and collaborate with local programs and businesses outside of the dental field. Both Dr. Mai and Dr. Perlman value sports and the impact it can have on our youth, making them proud to provide sponsorships for local teams. When it comes to fine arts, Dr. Mai is currently supporting local PNW artists by showcasing their art throughout the office.
