2022 Community Involvement
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, DMD, 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:

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.
