National Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month and Dr. James Sparaga and the team at Machias Dental would like to pay tribute to the more than 90 million Americans (39% of the U.S. population) who care for a family member. Machias Dental is donating four complimentary dental cleanings—one for each week of November—to a family caregiver from the Downeast area.

You may honor a family caregiver by nominating them for this dental health service.  Each week, Machias Dental will draw a recipient from the names that have been submitted. Submit nominations by visiting the general dental office on U.S. Route 1 in Machias or by phoning  207-225-8601.  You may also email  to or message Machias Dental on their Facebook page.

Nominations should include the following: the caregiver’s name and contact information, the name of the person for whom they care, and your name and contact information. Selected honorees will be contacted directly by Machias Dental and will be listed on the office’s website and Facebook page. To learn more about National Family Caregivers Month, visit
