Supporting Our Community In Oak Ridge

Aside from being the most trusted dentist in Oak Ridge, Dr. Lenihan has been a member of several civic organizations. Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce, Alumni of the O.R. Leadership Program, and many others. He is a member of the Oak Ridge Rotary Club and has helped in many activities with it, such as the STREET Painting Festival. He has sponsored many local children as artists, the proceeds all go to the Roane State Community College Foundation which pays for scholarships for older and Non-traditional student grants etc.

Dr Lenihan was a member of the Oak Ridge Educational Foundation. This group spearheaded the funding, design, and rebuild of Oak Ridge High School. Also aided in the funding of the Endowment for school system programs.

Dr. Lenihan also participated in the Oak Ridge Leadership program and the Citizens Police Academy; both great learning experiences.

As a Team, We have sent many “Care Packages” to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan with the help of many of our patients. Our packages have included Halloween candy, toothbrushes, hand-written notes from Patients to service-members they have never met, and blank greeting cards for the soldiers to send to loved ones back home.

We helped the OR Rotary Club Fill 3 Semis full of water, health care products, and food for the victims of Katrina. People from all walks of life donated to the cause.


Dr. Lenihan is proud to sponsor students each year for the Street Painting Festival.  This year, we sponsored students from St. Mary’s School and the Roane State Dental Hygiene Program!  The Dental Hygiene students placed 1st in their category and students from St. Mary’s placed 2nd in the Middle School category.  They did a fantastic job!



For our 4th ANNUAL RE-STOCKING THE FOOD BANK campaign, we put the word out to our patients in mid-January that we needed their help to help us re-stock our local food pantry. We are currently collecting non-perishable items and monetary donations.  This year we have joined forces with the Rotary Club of Oak Ridge and are hoping for a great response!  We will deliver the donations to St. Joseph’s Food Pantry at St. Mary’s Church on Tuesday, February 17, 2015. Keep the donations coming in! A BIG THANK YOU to our WONDERFUL PATIENTS!


During the months of October & November, we asked our patients to write encouraging messages to our military troops overseas to be included with our care packages. We had a huge response! We put together a total of 7 boxes that included toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, candy, Christmas cards, and your encouraging messages. Thank you for your support.
