Dental Fix Recognizes One of its Own for Heroic Act

Canadian Franchise Owner Rescues Child from Leaking Car

April 23, 2014 // // DAVIE, Fla. - Dental Fix Rx, LLC, a mobile dental equipment and handpiece repair company, has recognized franchisee Chris Moore for his heroic efforts to help save a young boy trapped in an overturned vehicle after a woman lost control of her car near Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, Canada. Moore was the recipient of Dental Fix's Above and Beyond Award.

Moore, alongside a fellow good Samaritan, pulled the screaming child out of his car seat and safely into his mother's arms. The accident took place in the northbound lane of the Trans-Canada Highway near Morden Road, after the car clipped a logging truck and was flipped into a ditch with the woman and her two children inside.

"Their actions were great," Constable Gary O'Brien, Nanaimo RCMP, told reporter Kendall Hanson with Chek News. " It was an extremely dangerous situation. The car was leaking gas; they could smell it. But they also realized there was a young boy who was trapped in the car, terrified of course -and they had to get him out."

Moore, who was driving between clients, saw the turned over vehicle and rushed to help.

"We could not be more proud of Chris for his selfless act," said David Lopez, CEO, Dental Fix. "He truly embodies our company values. He is not only driven and righteous, but also caring. He certainly performs above and beyond. We are delighted to recognize him with this special award."

A British Columbia native, Moore has been a franchisee since 2014 and serves the Vancouver Island market.
