What is it all about?
Gift of Smiles is a day to give back to the community, especially those who are unable to receive or afford regular dental care. It was started in 2009 and has become an annual event in our community. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 108 million people in the United States are not covered by dental insurance. Even individuals covered by dental insurance find it difficult to get care due to cost and anxieties. We believe everyone should enjoy the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile and started Gift of Smiles Day to give the community something to smile about!
Smiles Dental will be holding a Free Dental Day at each location during our annual Gift of Smiles effort. Residents of the communities being served, are able to call in the day prior to the event to schedule a one hour appointment for either a cleaning or restorative dental work. Restorative work includes fillings, extractions, or anything that can be done in one hour that does not require additional labs.
Due to the popularity of this event, Smiles can only see patients who are scheduled in advance.
Last year our Smiles Dental locations combined, donated nearly $130,000 in free dental services and served over 300 patients. The company has given over $710,000 during Gift of Smiles since its inception.
