Online PR News – 15-November-2010 – – CHICAGO, IL -- Patients of Dr. Theodore Siegel, a cosmetic dentist in Chicago, may be in for a surprise the next time they visit the dentist.
Dr. Siegel, along with another Chicago dentist Dr. Christopher Quick, are growing mustaches during the month of November to help raise recognition for men's cancer awareness month. The event, dubbed 'Movember,' brings attention to cancers that affect men, mainly testicular cancer and prostate cancer. During the month long event, each man taking part is encouraged to grow a mustache, or 'mo.' At the end of the month, the men, known as Mo Bros, and their female supporters, known as Mo Sistas, are invited to Gala Partes that occur across the United States.
"Dr. Quick and I are excited to take part in Movember and help raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. The event started as a joke between buddies in 2003 and has expanded to include events around the world. The money raised each year has continued to grow and last year, participants raised $42 million for Movember's global beneficiary partners. The proceeds from US donors benefit Livestrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation - two important partners in the fight against cancers that afflict men," said Dr. Siegel (http://www.bigsmiledental.com).
Dr. Siegel, Dr. Quick and the rest of the staff at Big Smile Dental focus on creating individual treatment plans for each patient. Whether they're looking for Invisalign or veneers in Chicago, each patient is provided with a step-by-step analysis and plan. The office offers patients with a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including porcelain veneers, Invisalign, braces and orthodontics, teeth whitening and dental implants. The office also provides standard dental services such as root canals, dentures, pediatric dentistry and routine cleanings.
"It's been fun to see my patients' reactions, especially when I tell them why I'm growing my mustache. We pride ourselves on offering excellent cosmetic dentistry services with a sense of humor and I think our patients appreciate seeing our lighter side come out. We know that some people can be apprehensive before visiting the dentist and this is just one way we can help put their minds at ease. If you're looking for a new dentist in Chicago, we invite you to come pay us a visit this Movember to check out my mo," said Dr. Siegel.
