Vita Dental is proud to be part of the vibrant Cincinnati community. As such, community engagement is one of the foundations of our practice. Vita Dental regularly seeks ways to be involved and to give back.
Vita Community Day
Held once a year, Vita Community Day provides services free of charge to those members of the community who might otherwise not be able to aﬀord dental care. To date, Vita Community Day has provided over $85,000 worth of free services to tri-state residents. Check back for updates on future Vita Community Day events and to learn how you can receive treatment or donate your goods or services to these deserving patients.
Dental Mission Trips
Drs. Shaftel and Jordan not only have a passion for helping people in need in the United States but have also made multiple trips to impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic. They, along with 18 colleagues from around the world, volunteer at a local clinic to provide extractions, sinus surgeries, bone grafting, implants, and jaw surgeries to people who do not have access to care. These patients often travel for days, lining up before sunrise to receive necessary care to address serious dentofacial conditions.
Canned Food Drives
During the holiday season, Vita Dental collects non-perishable food items and sells raffle tickets for the chance to win exciting prizes including Sonicare toothbrushes and teeth whitening treatments. All proceeds go to the Freestore Foodbank, serving the hungry in the Cincinnati community. Current patients as well as non-patients are welcome to donate to this honorable cause. “Like” us on Facebook to see updates this fall on our canned food drive and giveaways.
Vita Dental is proud to sponsor and participate in Sophie’s Angel Run, a local charity providing funding for the research of pediatric cancer as well as scholarships for local students.

Drs. Shaftel and Jordan are excited to announce they have been selected as Team Dentists for St. Xavier High School Athletics! Vita Dental was proud to fabricate custom mouthguards for The Bombers football team to wear during their 2014 season. Vita Dental wishes all of St. Xavier’s athletic teams the best of luck this year…Go Bombers!
Mission Trip Donations
Community engagement has always been a cornerstone of our practice and we are proud to have donated supplies and equipment to dental missions around the world. We appreciate the caring work our patients do overseas for those in need and are grateful for the ability to extend our reach beyond our backyard.
