It was another great night with the Braves! This year we partnered with Go-Docs and had 647 people come to the Danville Braves Night.

We had a tug-of-war against the Danville Police Department, which we lost. (Participants were: Dr. Nikki Hartline, Dr. Andrew Hessler, Dr. Thomas White, Dr. Austin Moon, Lisa Perez and Teresa Cook). We did not eat our wheaties that morning and we were no match for the muscle the Danville Police Department.

Our newest doctor, Dr. Austin Moon,  threw out the first pitch of the game and also entertained everyone as Molar Man. Danville Dental is looking forward to another night with the Braves in 2020!  See you there
