Science helps us solve problems.  Art helps us cope with them.”

Paint a Paddle for ALS Canada Online Auction

Forced to postpone our Live event and adjust our course, we are thrilled with the final result of our Paint a Paddle for ALS Canada Online Auction! 

In the end, over 220 one-of-a-kind paddle submissions were donated by our community and we auctioned off online over a full week in November.

At final tally, over 95% of items were sold raising nearly $37,000 for our Niagara-chapter of ALS Canada!

This event merged art and science and was a showcase of the power of community!  We want to thank all of those that made this event such a success – the artists, the organizers, the bidders, and the donors.

Thank you for your support and for the support of those in need.

By pulling together we forge ahead.

Perio in the Peninsula x Abroad; Cultivating Mindfulness

Continuing Education Series 2020/21


COVID-19 has brought with it many unprecedented physical, mental, financial and social-related challenges.  We’ve lost income. Feared for our health and the health of our loved ones. We’ve been physically disconnected, but electronically over-stimulated. We’ve faced emotional instability, work-life associated anxiety, and detriments to our well-being like we never thought possible.

This year, we have teamed up with Abroad, a coaching, education, and research platform to bring the couragenous dental health professionals a continuing education series unlike any we’ve ever presented before.

Perio in the Peninsula, Est. 2005

Established in 2005, Dr. Fritz hosts the Perio in the Peninsula Study Club.  This study club has hosted more than 80 events across the Niagara Peninsula and has developed a powerful network of hygienists, dentists, dental assistants, dental administrators, nurses, scientists, academics, physicians, and dental specialists.  While no two events have been alike, the program of Perio in the Peninsula study clubs are always designed to promote a collaborative learning experience with a patient-centric focus.

This year, we partnered with our friends at Niagara College, a leader in dental hygiene education in Canada, to include students and health care providers alike with the opportunity to access the most cutting-edge science and clinical frameworks.
