Westlake Girls and Shakespeare Orthodontics

Getting our Teeth into an Amazing New Partnership!

The Genesis of Our Partnership with Shakespeare Orthodontics

Our partnership with Shakespeare Orthodontics is a recent development, but it stems from deep personal connections within our community. The bond between Shakespeare Orthodontics and Westlake Girls High School is fortified by shared values and a commitment to supporting local initiatives.

Proximity and Community Ties

Shakespeare Orthodontics has long been an integral part of our community, situated conveniently close to Westlake Girls High School. Their geographical proximity and admiration for our respectful and ambitious students made their decision to support us a natural fit. Their sponsorship is a testament to their dedication to reinforcing their core values within the local community.

Supporting Westlake Girls High School

Shakespeare Orthodontics currently supports our school through various initiatives designed to empower and assist our students:

  • Team Mouthguards: Providing professionally fitted mouthguards to premier sports teams to prevent injuries.
  • Empowerment Fund: Offering financial assistance to programmes and students.
  • Year 9 Camp: Supporting outdoor education experiences.
  • Parent/Daughter Breakfasts: Strengthening family and school community ties.
  • Annual School Production: Promoting arts and culture within the school.
  • Premier Teams’ Overseas Trips: Supporting trips such as this year’s Macau Basketball trip.
  • Careers Talks: Offering insights into health sciences and university pathways.

Impact on Our Students

The support from Shakespeare Orthodontics directly and positively impacts our students. For instance, the primary goal of the mouthguards is injury prevention, which benefits the students and represents a proactive approach to health. Additionally, providing water bottles promotes oral health by encouraging students to drink tap water. Across all Shakespeare Orthodontics’ initiatives, there is a common theme of giving back to the community and fostering a healthier, more supportive environment for our students.

 

Future Engagement Opportunities

As with all our partners, numerous opportunities exist for deeper engagement with Shakespeare Orthodontics beyond financial contributions. At Westlake, we are excited about the potential for expanding their role and providing more hands-on support to our students.

“We are open to involving our employees in mentorship programs, offering insights into the healthcare setting, particularly orthodontics, and participating in business mentorship initiatives,” explains Mo Al-Dujaili, Partner and Specialist Orthodontist at Shakespeare Orthodontics.
