Community Involvement in Mobile
Dentists with Heart
Giving back to their community is very much on the minds of the dentists at Maitre and Crabtree Dental Group. Our dentists are all native sons of Mobile and want to give back to their community for all the community has done for them. That’s why our dentists are active participants in the Mobile community and feel fortunate to be in the position to help in various ways.
When they are not creating smiles in the office, you may find our caring dentists elsewhere in the community doing volunteer work with their church, school, community and through social betterment activities.
