As our way of showing our appreciation to our community and having a little fun, we do an Annual July Lobster Give Away. The lobsters are supplied by the owner’s son, Jack of all Trades, a local lobsterman who personally delivers the lobsters fresh off his boat for our lucky winner!

As part of our community outreach, we travel to the local dental school, the University of New England’s College of Dental Medicine in Portland. At the beginning of their school year, we educate and promote the importance of wearing ear protection to dental students to prevent future hearing loss caused by repetitive drilling from dental instruments.

We want to make it possible for all members of our community to have the opportunity to have their hearing evaluated, so we come to you. We offer home visits to assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the southern Maine area. Two to three times a year, we schedule one full-day of on-site hearing evaluations for residents living in one of our town’s assisted living facilities.
