Free Oral Cancer Screenings April 2017

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

Armenian child smiling with bad teeth.At Longwood Dental Group, community extends beyond the town we work in or the neighbors we greet. We believe that it is also an honor and responsibility to make a difference in the lives of the people of Armenia and Karabakh.

“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.

Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan awarded Berdj Kiladjian with the “Gratitude” medalThe organization started in 1998 with the establishment of their first dental clinic in the war-devastated historic town of Shushi. Hand In Hand has successfully built six dental clinics in different regional centers of Artsakh, a mobile unit for rural Artsakh and one women’s health clinic in the Capital, Stepanakert.

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

Dr.Kiladjian continues his efforts in Armenia and Karabakh and with spearheading the direction of Hand In Hand to improve dental health care in this war-torn area.
