Coronavirus: Local periodontist gathers supplies for Coachella Valley medical professionals
Love, who continues to see dental patients on an emergency basis, says she is so grateful for all that she has. Showing compassion rather than fear is as important to her as helping others. She believes that together we can make a difference; pooling these valuable supplies and distributing them proportionately throughout the valley will be helpful, especially if manufacturers find themselves unable to meet the excessive demand and replenish stock as quickly as needed.
Love acknowledges and thanks her colleagues in the dental community for their donations, including Dr. Maria Aguilar; Dr. Lilibeth Babao; Steve Hermann, dental rep for Henry Schein; Dr. Mina Narula; Dr. Scott Shepherd; Dr. Dwayne Nishikubo; Dr. Carolyn Izu; Dr. Rainer Bergmann; Dr. Jamie Carstairs and Dr. Ayman El Raheb.
As for distributing the supplies, Love has reached out to local mayors, offering to donate, and says if medical professionals contact her requesting gloves or masks, her team will make arrangements to deliver them.
Meanwhile, donations continue to be welcome, no matter how big or small, Monday through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Love’s office, Advanced Periodontics Implant Center, which is located at 72780 Country Club Drive, Suite 402 in Rancho Mirage. For more information, call (760) 836-1809 or visit drellielove.com.
