How to support Ukrainian businesses?
My story

For almost 25 years, I have been helping people improve their quality of life by changing their smiles.

In 2006, together with my son Maxim, we set up our small business in Kyiv. Before the war, we had plans to expand our business and staff by increasing the number of workplaces and the list of services, so as to grow from the dental office to the dental clinic.

When the war broke out, we firmly resolved to stay in Kyiv, despite our fear and unknown future. All the citizens of the city will not leave anyway, so, people will need our help. Therefore, I placed an ad on Facebook, and a week later started working, having made consultations free, and having reduced the prices to the cost prices. We started helping people from the terrorist defense forces, from the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, our soldiers from the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

I am a private entrepreneur (natural person-entrepreneur). I run my business out of my own pocket, during martial law, helping people. I also pay taxes and for public utilities. After all, I believe that working on the home front is very important to support the Ukrainian economy.

We plan to maintain the quality of dental services at the same level they were before the Russian aggression, by purchasing time-tested materials that we always use and by keeping prices at the affordable level, because I believe that everyone has the right to receive quality dental services.
