Community Involvement – Harker Heights, TX
Giving Back to the Community We Love
Our team understands that without our Harker Heights community, it would be impossible to pursue our passion for enhancing patient smiles. This is why we’re dedicated to giving back to the residents and organizations in the area who have given us so much. Below you will find a few of the charities and causes we support, and we hope you will say hello the next time you see us out in the community!
Donation Nation Blood Drive
Market Heights Family Dental and Scott and White Healthcare Blood Care Center partnered together in July 2015 and April 2016 to host "Donation Nation," a company-wide blood drive throughout Central Texas. We offered oral cancer screening vouchers and other goodies to all donors. We are proud to give back to our community, and we were recognized with the 2015 Community Hero Award, Outstanding Corporate Blood Drive, and an outstanding coordinator award.
Food for Families
Market Heights Family Dental has proudly supported Food for Families and the food pantry in Killeen since 2012.
This is a one-day food drive that collects non-perishable food and monetary donations to fill the pantries and serve the community. Food for Families began in 1990, and it’s the largest food drive in Central Texas. This year, Market Heights Family Dental collected 11,785 pounds of food!

Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Market Heights Family Dental is committed to educating our community about the risks of oral cancer. Each April, MHFD hosts a free oral cancer screening event to spread awareness about this silent killer. Each year, close to 43,250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer, causing over 8,000 deaths. Of those newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. Early detection may save your life. Learn More.
