4th Annual Touch-a-Truck Fort Myers

March 20, 2020

4th Annual Touch-a-Truck Postponed

The past few weeks have been unprecedented, as we see the global toll COVID-19 has taken. Our foremost concern is for the health and safety of our patients, colleagues, community, and friends throughout Southwest Florida and the world. We are carefully monitoring the situation as it evolves on what seems like a minute-to-minute basis

We have received several inquiries regarding the annual touch a truck event and the sudden onset of this pandemic has forced Pediatric Dentistry of Florida leadership and staff to reevaluate our plans for our 4th annual Touch a Truck planned for April 25, 2020.

We have decided to postpone to a later date, and we appreciate your patience as we navigate internally through all of this. We hope to announce a date for October 2020. Please know that we will be in communication with interested parties and our vendors as soon as decisions are made. Thank you and God bless you all.
