“The teeth whitening procedure is quick and painless, with excellent results,” explains Dr. Acton, a Crown Council dentist. “Most importantly, a few minutes in the chair can make an incredible impact on someone in great need.”
Smiles for Hope Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Foundation committed to the idea that everyone should all have the chance to serve their fellow human beings if given the opportunity. Smiles for Hope Foundation provides that opportunity by offering an avenue for dental professionals to serve the "poorest of the poor" through dental services—both preventive and rehabilitative.
This year, Dr. Acton and Cary Family Dental are hoping to raise $10,000 to send practice team members to the Dominican Republic to offer dental services to those who need it most. From now until the end of June, teeth whitening services have been reduced from $250 to $199 with 100% of the proceeds going toward supplies and to assist in running the Dominican Republic clinic. The practice has raised $900 to date.
Cary Family Dental manager, Beth Hertrick, said that practice team members have wanted to get involved with mission work for some time, and Smiles for Hope Foundation presented the ideal opportunity.
“We’ve wanted to do this for years, but never had the opportunity until now,” says Hertrick. “As a team, we wanted to lend our unique talent to this important cause. Traveling to the Dominican Republic will not only allow us to change the lives of those in need, but will also provide a unique and life-changing experience for our entire team.”
