DENTAL clinics aren't usually associated with being highly involved in the community, but for The Happy Tooth Muswellbrook, that statement could hardly be further from the truth.

On top of sending their practice coordinator and a dental assistant to Nepal for a program to help those who are underprivileged, they are also displaying their support for breast cancer awareness.

Their office has been decorated pink for the month of October, and will be collecting donations through a number of formats.

The McGrath Foundation will be one of the groups benefiting from their involvement.

Brittany Farmilo and Paul O'Neill took time to speak about why they'd decided to revamp their practice's aesthetics.

"For me personally my nan had breast cancer, fortunately for her she found it early so she was able to actually get the treatment she required so she's still alive now," said the former.

"So it means a lot to be able to have women know about and raise awareness and have a check and things like that, just so that they can get on top of things early and survival rates can hopefully increase."

Mr O'Neill was also please with his employer's decision to show such care and compassion towards the topic.

He revealed being part of the betterment of society is something they strive to do in any way they can.

"I think it is part of the philosophy of the practice here that we do support different community initiatives along these lines," he said.
