Cary Family Dental Whitens Teeth, Contributes to Children’s Charities
August 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsThis spring and summer, as part of the Crown Council’s Smiles for Life campaign, Cary Family Dental offered teeth whitening services at a significantly reduced price, and donated 100 percent of the proceeds to help children facing serious health and educational problems.
During the four-month campaign, Cary Family Dental raised over $20,000, five times more than the practice raised in their first year participating last year. Half of the funds raised were contributed to the Garth Brooks’ Teammates For Kids Foundation for use in health, education, and inner city programs that benefit children. The other half was contributed to Triangle Downs Syndrome for use right here in our community.
“We had a great campaign this year and would like to thank everyone in the community who came out and helped make it a success by purchasing whitening services during our campaign,” says Dr. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental. “It has been great seeing the beautiful smiles of our patients after performing whitening services; however, it is even better to see the smiles on the faces of the children our contributions are helping to support.”
The Smiles for Life Foundation is the children’s charity organization of the Crown Council, an organization of leading-edge dentists throughout North America. Each year over a four-month period, participating Crown Council dentists offer professional teeth whitening services at a considerably reduced price and donate the proceeds to children’s charities. The Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation has raised more than $20 million since 1998, benefiting over 500 children’s charities across North America.
“Smiles for Life is a win-win situation,” explains Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council and one of the founders of the Smiles for Life campaign. “Patients get a brighter smile, our member dentists get the satisfaction of contributing to their community, and, best of all, children who really need our help get a reason to smile.”
