SMILES Program

Educating children on the importance of preventative dental care and regular dentist visits

Sealing Molars Improves the Lives of Every Student

We Believe in What We Stand For!

While we treat patients in our clinic, the SMILES team visits elementary schools in our community to educate children on the key importance of dental health.

Made possible by our generous volunteers and sponsors, SMILES also provides the following products and services to students, at no charge:

  • Donated toothbrushes, sealants, and fluoride

  • Services rendered each school year:

    • More than 4,000 decay-preventing sealants are placed for approximately 1,400 children

    • Over 3,000 children receive a fluoride treatment

    • These services equate to an estimated $407,000 in dental care!

SMILES currently reaches approximately 9,000 children in our local elementary schools! Find out more about the different ways you can help support our continued success.
