In spring of 2019 we launched our Fundraiser in a Box Challenge and invited the local community to join us in raising funds to help change lives through art. Throughout the challenge we will be featuring participating businesses and individuals in an ongoing Supporter Spotlight series.

A lot of people don’t exactly smile when they think about going to the dentist, but Norwood Dental is changing that. Dr. William Chin and his team do more than just fill cavities; they are a group of community-minded change makers who are working to make Alberta Avenue a better place, one smile at a time.
If you’ve attended any events on 118th Avenue recently you’ve likely seen Manager Amanda Neilson there representing Norwood Dental. Since taking over the practice in March of 2018, Amanda and her fiance Dr. William Chin have jumped head first into the community, delivering oral health education presentations and care packages to more than 2000 children attending inner city schools.
Amanda serves on the Alberta Avenue Business Association Board of Directors, and Norwood Dental donates every year to Spark! Youth Camp, a local theatre arts camp on Alberta Avenue. They have also hosted fundraisers for the Rat Creek Press, and Arts on the Ave, and support the Nina through our patron program and sponsorship.
“At Norwood Dental Centre, each patient is important and treated with care, comfort, and kindness. Our goal is to put you at ease and provide quality oral care consistent with your needs and budget”
It was this genuine interest in supporting the Alberta Avenue community that made Norwood Dental the first business that came to mind when we launched our Fundraiser in a Box Challenge. We are so thrilled to be one of the many organizations that Norwood Dental supports.
Many Nina staff members go to Norwood Dental and can attest that the experience is unlike any other visit to the dentist we’ve had before! Book an appointment to visit this Alberta Avenue gem and pick up a collectable Nina art card by donation at the front desk. We promise you’ll leave with a smile!
