Giving Back to Our Community

Community service is a cornerstone of our practice at Loew & Patel Orthodontics. Check out some of the ways we give back to families throughout New Jersey!

Creating Holiday Bliss for New Jersey Families

When times are hard, and you’re a parent facing the tough choices of a tight budget, you shouldn’t have to choose between an electric bill, food, or a beautiful holiday for your family!

Prevention Resources, Inc. collects gifts for families who are dealing with financial hardships during the holiday season. Thanks to you, our amazing community has provided a joyful season for 11 deserving families!

We love supporting this organization because of the fantastic ways they give back to the Hunterdon Community. To learn more about Prevention Resources Inc., visit

Thank you for making the holidays brighter for these families!

Operation Jersey Cares

There’s nothing more fun than trick-or-treating on Halloween! Operation Jersey Cares gives military troops deployed overseas the chance to enjoy the holiday, too.

Our community donated 2,800 pounds of candy to deliver care packages to our troops to show support and give them a tasty treat from home. To learn more about Operation Jersey Cares, a 100% volunteer–operated organization, visit

Autism Awareness

For over 20 years we have treated patients with autism. This extension of the Loew & Patel Orthodontics family has taught us a lot about individuals with autism. We make it a priority every year to be part of creating awareness and revenue to support organizations that help families in our community.

We selected Autism of New Jersey as our charitable recipient. To learn more about this organization, visit their website, Autism New Jersey!

What made this year EXTRA special was the local businesses that stepped up and said, "Of Course" to our request for a donation to make this massive gift basket — which ended up with over $3,000 in gift card treasures to explore Hunterdon County!

If that wasn't amazing enough, our winner — who is Nancy Holden-Waltermire's son and our former patient — re-donated a $500 gift certificate for braces to another family whose autistic child needs braces!
