Community Involvement

Dr. Dougherty and the Dougherty Orthodontic Team not only want to provide the absolute best in orthodontic care, they also understand the importance of supporting Valley Park and the surrounding communities. We believe in volunteering our time and supporting organizations, churches, schools, and teams.

Ballwin Days

If you’ve lived in West County long, you’re bound to have memories of Ferris wheel rides, parades, concerts, 5ks, fireworks and kids activities at Vlasis Park in the summer. Ahhh… Ballwin Days.  Attracting thousands of attendees, the event is a highlight of the summer for many people living in the St. Louis area.  This volunteer based event has been able to donate over $70,000 to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital over the years, along with other organizations.  We were so lucky to be able to support our local Ballwin community and participate in this iconic annual event.

Community Educator Outreach Program

Did you know you can help your school by getting braces? At Dougherty Orthodontics, we give back to schools with our Community Education Outreach program! We offer $25 school donations to participating schools for patients who begin treatment and 10% teacher discounts to all educators. Plus, we offer free dental education and other forms of support to our kids’ schools. Why? Because we truly appreciate all of the ways in which St. Louis schools and teachers help our patients and our community.
