2022 Community Involvement

Campi Cares

About Campi Cares

Campi Cares is our practice’s philanthropic initiative that was born out of the long-standing tradition of giving back to the community. John G. Campi, DDS, the founder of Campi Dental, started the Boys and Girls Club of Asbury Park in 1933 which was just the beginning of our practices charitable efforts that have continued for decades. Campi Cares today is led by the Campi Family with participation from the entire Campi Dental team. Our practice is not only committed to delivering expert dental care but is passionate about supporting the communities in which we practice and our patients live. Giving back is a passion of ours and is demonstrated in our actions and how we serve our families, communities, and environment. Campi Cares will continue to grow as we strive to create lifelong value and a positive social impact.Our practices philanthropic efforts focus on overall health & wellness, nutrition, and education. Some of our community contributions and work include:

  • Speaking about overall health and wellness, and nutrition at local schools
  • Collecting food and toys for local children in need
  • Providing backpacks and school supplies to local children
  • Collecting and shipping candy to the troops overseas and supporting the Tunnel to Towers Foundation that supports local Veterans and First Responders

Campi Dental’s 17th Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back

Campi Dental hosted a record breaking event where we collected candy and raised money for the troops, the most they’ve we’ve ever collected. Campi Dental has worked with Kathy Cunningham and her Team Shamrock raising money for the Tunnel 2 Towers organization for many years. Campi Dental partners with the local organization “Always Supporting Our Military” to ship the candy overseas to the troops. Campi Dental collected over 1,000 pounds of candy and donated $2,000 dollars to Tunnel 2 Towers this year, the most they have ever collected and donated.


We are excited to be hosting our 17th Annual Candy Buy-Back where we collect candy from the local community and ship it overseas to the troops as a well deserved treat. We love to get the kids involved, by donating their candy they are eating less sugar while also feeling like they are contributing to a good cause. Campi Dental has worked with Kathy Cunningham and Team Shamrock raising money for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation for many years. Last year we collected over 825 pounds of candy and donated over $1,400 dollars to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. We hope to beat that amount of candy and the monetary donation this year. Please come out on Saturday, November 5, 2022 for a fun and rewarding day. We will be collecting candy from 10am-2pm at our office – 2041 NJ-35, Wall Twp, NJ 07719

Tell your friends and come bring all of your left over candy to our Halloween Candy Buy-Back! We’ll pay out $1 per pound up to 5 pounds. All of the candy collected will be sent overseas to our troops.

More About Team Shamrock: Kathy Cunningham is a proud Board Member of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. She fundraises for the Foundation year-round through her Team Shamrock! Team Shamrock was created to honor Kathy’s brother Donald W. Robertson, Jr, who perished on 9/11. Donnie was a 35-year-old father of four who worked on the 105th floor of the North Tower for Cantor Fitzgerald. Team Shamrock is consistently the #1 private fundraising team for the Foundation. This year Team Shamrock raised over $300,000. All monies raised aid our brave Military and First Responders. The Smart Home Program builds mortgage-free handicap accessible homes for the most catastrophically injured Service Members. The Gold Star Program pays off mortgages of Service Members killed in the line of duty, leaving young families behind. Fallen First Responder Program pays off mortgages of Fire, Police, and EMTs killed while on duty with young families. Kathy and the Tunnel to Towers Foundation turn the tragedy of 9/11 into a tribute to all those lost on that day by DOING GOOD and NEVER FORGETTING! https://www.facebook.com/NeverForgetDWR

More About Always Supporting Our Military: Always Supporting Our Military is a non-profit organization made up of about 20 retired Toms River residents who get together each week and put together packages to send to our military members overseas. Food, snacks, toiletries and more, all put together by volunteers who depend on donations and fundraising towards postage (about $18 a box) and supplies.

Campi Dental Draws Awareness to Oral Cancer

At Campi Dental, it’s our goal to educate our patients and the community about Oral Cancer.

We are incredibly proud to donate $25 of every $50 oral cancer screening to Mary’s Place by the Sea. This wonderful organization helps support women with cancer through integrative services which complement their medical treatment and empower, educate, and support their healing: mind, body and soul. A world where every woman with cancer has a place to feel whole. And, what better a place to do so than at the peaceful Jersey shore.

Tobacco use of any kind and heavy alcohol use are primary causes of Oral Cancer as well as excessive sun exposure to your lips or a sexually transmitted virus called HPV.

About 54,010 people will get oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer in 2021. Learn more facts and information about oral cancer in our oral cancer fact sheet 2022. 

February is Children’s Dental Health Month

Throughout February Campi Dental raises awareness about the importance of children’s oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

We typically like to continue our family’s tradition of educating our community by going into classrooms to speak to children’s classes about their dental health. This year is a bit different, so instead of doing in person presentations we sent in dental goody bags to a few local schools with educational content for the kids to take home and share with their families.

The habits that we as parents instill at this very impressionable stage can be long lasting. We need to teach our children how important it is to take care of their teeth now so when they get their permanent teeth they are prepared. Parents are strongly recommended to supervise children practicing oral hygiene. They must brush for at least two minutes and brush every side of every tooth.

We invite you to take advantage of Toothprints; an identification system for children capturing specific dental characteristics as well as DNA. Dental imprints are unique to every person. We provide Toothprints as a complimentary service to our patients.

The best time for a child’s first visit to the dentist is between ages 2 and 3. Please feel free to contact us at Wall Township Phone Number732-449-2228 if you ever have any questions regarding your family’s oral health.

If you are a teacher or school administrator and would like to connect with us about educating your students on the importance of dental health, please contact Karen Campi, VP Community Affairs – [email protected]
