For over a decade, the staff of Longwood Dental Group has personally donated the funds, shopped, made baskets and distributed Thanksgiving Baskets to the Brookline Community.

For the last 2 years we have donated Gift Cards for Thanksgiving Meals instead of our traditional baskets due to Covid Restrictions. But this year the baskets have returned! We were able to create our Traditional Thanksgiving Baskets for our Charities to distribute to their families!

Free Oral Cancer Screenings April 2019

Dr. Berdj Kiladjian is proud to announce that Longwood Dental Group has partnered with The Oral Cancer Foundation in honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month and will be offering Free Oral Cancer Screenings to the public in April.

Oral cancer is not a rare disease. It kills one person every hour of every day in the US, and 100 new individuals will be diagnosed each day with oral cancer. These staggering statistics make these events crucial, as awareness of the disease and its risk factors in the US is so low.

Please don’t miss out on this opportunity for a free oral cancer screening.

Screenings will be offered free of charge throughout the month of April. Call 617.566.5445 to schedule a screening.

Bringing Healthy Smiles to Armenia’s Children

“We don’t change children’s lives overnight,” said Dr. Berdj Kiladjian. “We do this quietly, day by day. Preventive dentistry is not dramatic.”

Dr.Kiladjian chairs the Board of Directors for Hand In Hand, a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to the improvement of the health and social welfare of the Artsakh population, focusing on dental care and preventative education in Armenia and Karabakh.

In October 2014, the Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan awarded Dr.Kiladjian with the “Gratitude” medal for his services to the Nagorno Karabagh Republic.
