ymca photoMarking ‘Member Appreciation Week,’ the Stoughton Branch of the Old Colony YMCA recently accepted a donation of a supply of lanyards from ARCH Pediatric Dentistry. The popular blue lanyards, ideal for carrying keys or ID cards around the neck, feature YMCA and ARCH contact information. Pediatric Dentist Dr. Karissa Koster of ARCH (shown at right) said, “This symbolizes our long-term relationship with the Y since we are both committed to meeting the needs of the towns we serve with a common goal: to build stronger, healthier communities where people of all ages learn, grow and thrive.” Shown accepting the donation from Dr. Koster is Ben Green, Stoughton Y Branch Associate Executive Director.

ARCH Pediatric Dentistry is part of ARCH Orthodontics, which over the years has supported the Y’s annual ‘Healthy Kids Day,’ and has sponsored a pediatric dental program for parents. The coverage areas for both entities overlap as ARCH operates 9 offices from Boston to Cape Cod and the Old Colony YMCA has 7 locations between Stoughton and Plymouth.
