It’s no exaggeration to say that Dr. Charles Hawkins is a hometown hero. He’s got awards from the Muskingum Valley American Red Cross to prove it! In 2016, the organization gave him a Healthcare Hero award for saving a man’s life using a tourniquet. He also received the same award a few years earlier for saving a man by performing CPR. Dr. Hawkins even shared top billing with Santa Claus in the 2017 Storybook Christmas Parade after being named Grand Marshal of the event by The Zanesville South Business Association.Dr. Charles Hawkins on how Hawkins Complete Dental Service is involved in the community Read Transcript
Zanesville is a very small community. When I first came here, I was from Columbus, I first came and went to the mall and people was actually saying, "Hi, how are you?" here. I told my wife this is where I want to raise my family and we've been here for 20 years. This community has been very, very accepting of me and my family and my staff. So, we love it here. We have done a free dental day when we opened the practice from 7:00 in the morning, till 3:00 in the afternoon. On them days, we do free fillings, free cleanings, the girls all gave up their time, free extractions. We got to cut it off because there's a line that wraps around this building sometimes, when we do them. So, that's one of the things that we do for the community.
Every other year, Dr. Hawkins offers free dental cleanings, tooth fillings, and tooth extractions at our Zanesville, OH dentist office to people who cannot afford this basic dental care. He also sells breast cancer awareness T-shirts to patients every autumn, with proceeds going to the Genesis Breast Care Center. He donates toothbrushes to Foxfire High School and often donates dental services such as teeth whitening treatments for fundraisers at other local schools as well as for veterans.
