On November 6th, 2014 Capitol Dental partnered with Idaho Mountain Touring (IMT) to host their second annual Movember men’s health awareness event on First Thursday. Dr. Doyle and Chris Haunold of IMT are both passionate about active lifestyles and contributing to our healthy community here in Boise. Our goal with this Movember Kick-Off event was to talk about issues that effect men, mainly prostate and testicular cancer.

The goal of Movember is to start the month clean shaven and grow your mustache during the month to spark conversation and bring awareness to these issues. This year’s event featured live music by the David Andrew’s Band and professional hot towel shaves were provided by Headliners Barber Shop. There were many enthusiastic men who chose to indulge in the hot towel shave experience. This photo is of Dennis who hasn’t been clean shaven since 1968, since before he met his wife!
