How We Give Back
The Sierra Crest Dental Team believes in supporting our community. We have done this in many ways both in our local community and internationally. We are grateful for all we have and share it whenever the opportunity arises.
Truckee Donner Land Trust: Protect and enjoy open space for nature, for people, forever. Since 1990, the Land Trust has not only preserved more than 40,000 acres of open space, but has also built trails, manages a campground, and has created numerous opportunities for the public to access and enjoy these lands. In 2021, the Truckee Donner Land Trust partnered with Mountain Area Preservation, SOS Glenshire and the Martis Fund to protect 290 acres of open space in eastern Truckee called Canyon Springs. Dr. Delaney matched the donations of our patients to help save Canyon Springs!
