Community involvement is a priority for Dr. Bourne & his dedicated team! We hope to not only improve our patients' smiles but the communities they live in too!
Dr. Bourne is a large supporter and donor to area school districts, many local sports teams, and various civic organizations, including the Boys and Girls Clubs, and the YMCA. He has a history of giving his time, energy and resources to organizations that extend beyond orthodontic care.
Awards & Recognition
In May 2013 Bourne Orthodontics was able to adopt a street in Marysville. Our team wanted to take part in creating a better, more attractive living environment in our community by helping to reduce unsightly litter.
Each year Bourne Orthodontics takes part in Lake Stevens Aquafest. There are always lots of fun prizes and giveaways!
We are so excited to be a part of this fun community event each year! 5k, 10k, and kids .5 mile run. A portion of the proceeds goes towards the Lake Stevens School District Stephen R. Covey "Leader In Me" Program. The run is along the beautiful Centennial Trail. More event info at www.lakestevenschamber.com
Each troop that visits gets to learn about what Dr. Bourne does, how to take impressions, and of course proper oral hygiene! And what do Girl Scouts do best? HELP OTHERS! The troop is able to put together oral hygiene kits to donate to those who are in need! The girls are also able to earn badges such as Healthy Habits!
Halloween Candy Buy-Back
Every year, Bourne Orthodontics collects Halloween candy from individuals from all over Snohomish County. For every pound of candy donated, $2.00 is given to the "trick-or-treater," and $2.00 is donated to a local charity such as Boys & Girls Club & YMCA. The collected candy is then picked up by wonderful young lady named Mary Welsh from Arlington, who spends countless hours sorting and packaging the candy to be shipped to our brave troops serving overseas.
We have been fortunate to be able to share the candy each year with others as well. Also included are Christian Ministries in Africa who are able to take some of the candy with them on their trips to Nairobi to give small amounts to the local children, while providing HIV/AIDS education to the Kenyan people, Heartbeat: Serving Wounded Warriors — where the candy is given to over 1000 wounded servicemen & women at the VA & Fort Lewis Hospitals, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance — for patients undergoing treatment, and last but not least the local Food Banks.
