Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters Gives Back to the Community All Year ‘Round

November 15th is National Philanthropy Day


Philanthropists are honored for their many significant contributions, help and good deeds and for the differences that they have made in our lives and our communities.

David A. Bresler, DDS opened the first Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters office in 1982, and was an avid philanthropist. He was devoted to giving back to the community and taught his three children the importance of carrying on this legacy. Today, Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters and Drs. Josh, Jason, and Rachel and Mrs. Sherry Bresler, family and staff, are dedicated to keeping Doc’s mission alive. Here are some of the many philanthropic charities that receive Doc Bresler’s contributions, all year ’round.
