“You must give some time to your fellow men. Even if it's a little thing, do something for others - something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it."
- Albert Schweitzer
At Wayside Dental Centre, we encourage and support our staff in community volunteering. We encourage giving of all types, whether it is coaching minor hockey, youth soccer, beginner baseball, becoming a mentor or going to local schools to educate about oral health and dental professions.

Halloween Candy Buy Back Program
Since it's launch in 2012 our Candy Buy Back Program has continued to grow each year. We are continually impressed with the enthusiasm and giving spirit of Lloydminster's youth.
Through their donations we have been able to give almost 3000 lbs in candy and other treats to the Canadian Military! This program helps reduce the candy consumption within our community while supporting our troops.
Kindness In Action and Change For Children
Dr. Nekky Jamal continued with his humanitarian work in Nicuaragua this spring with the organization Change for Children. Change for Children has been operating as a non-profit charity since 1976 providing dental care and improving quality of life for hundreds of people in underdeveloped countries. Its success depends on the generosity of dental care professionals and the monetary donations from bighearted donors throughout the year. For more information please visit https://changeforchildren.org/
Dr Jamal started his humanitarian work back in 2010 with the organization Kindness In Action. For more information please visit http://www.kindnessinaction.ca/
Dr Jamal has also started an initiative called Quench that aims to provide accessible drinking water for thousands of people in Nicaragua. Since it's inception in 2015 he has successfully raised enough funds to sponsor almost a dozen water wells!
Lloydminster Food Bank
At Wayside Dental we realize that there are families and individuals that go hungry within our community.
We actively encouraged all staff and their families to donate non-perishable food items as often as they can. In April of 2017 we participated in a Fight For Food with another local business. Our goal was to donate over 1000 lbs in the month of April.

MS Society of Lloydminster
Multiple Sclerosis is
a debilitating disease that affects many Canadians. At Wayside Dental
Centre we believe that a cure will be found, and soon. Working in
conjunction with the Lloydminster chapter of the MS society Wayside
Dental committed to donating all the proceeds from all sealants done
during the month of May to the Canadian MS Society to help fund its
research and programs. A cheque for $1500.00 was donated to the local
chapter of the MS Society in June 2011. For more information on the
Lloydminster MS Society please visit www.mssociety.ca/chapters/lloydminster
