Dr. Perlman and Dr. Mai are passionate about their commitment to give back to the community. Since his first year of dental school, Dr. Perlman has participated in Pelotonia®, a bicycle tour that raises money for cancer research. He was the captain of the dental school team for three years and has continued to participate directly or donate annually since. While Dr. Perlman was riding bikes to fight cancer, Dr. Mai was traveling with PODEMOS, a team of medical and dental students and professionals, to impoverished communities in Latin America and providing free dental treatment to those without the means or access to care.
Currently, Dr. Perlman and Dr. Mai are working with local schools to provide free dental screenings to children who may otherwise never visit a dental office. They collaborate annually with Expanding Your Horizons Network, which teaches and encourages young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.). Dr. Mai also works with Union Gospel Mission Dental Clinic and Medical Teams International Mobile Dental Clinic to provide free dental care to the homeless and uninsured members of our community.
Our practice values the importance of supporting and linking up with local businesses and programs outside of dentistry. Dr. Perlman and Dr. Mai believe in the value of sports and are proud to sponsor local teams. In addition, Dr. Mai is spotlighting local artists in the Pacific Northwest by featuring their art for sale throughout the office and hosting open house events. Ultimately, Dr. Perlman and Dr. Mai would like to create a non-profit program through the artwork to carry out full-mouth reconstructions (smile makeovers) for victims of domestic violence. If you are a local artist and would like to be featured, please email us with details of your work.
