Zoo Boo

Dr. William D. Hammerlee and his staff from Hammerlee Dental Care have a trick-or-treat booth at the Erie Zoo’s annual Zoo Boo event. They hand out sugarless gum and toothbrushes to children 12 and under, totaling 20,000 items. In 2011, they also gave away a certificate for a free exam and cavity detecting X-rays in every treat bag. There were no restrictions on the certificate aside from an expiration date. Children, adults, new patients or existing, insured or not, are all eligible to use the certificate.

Other ways Hammerlee Dental Care has given back:
  • Sponsored the Erie Bikers Against Cancer bike run and annual Roar on the Shore event.
  • Sponsored the annual Michael D. Crotty Emergency Services Motorcycle Ride.
  • Donated a basket of dental products to the LECOM Medical Fitness and Wellness Center for their silent auction benefiting the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Student Scholarship Fund.
  • Provided more than 800 giveaways to the “Kid’s Zone” dental health section at the Celebrate Erie Festival. Offered a Groupon for an examination, X-rays and whitening for $40.00.
