Smiles for Life is a national charity that has raised over $1.475 million dollars in 2014, and over $34.5 million in the last 16 years (making it the largest cause-related campaign in dentistry). Only members of Crown Council may participate in Smiles for Life, with Parkcrest Dental Group being the only local dental office privileged to take part in this year’s event.

Crown Council is an alliance of driven, dedicated dentists who are committed to excellence in their practice, improving their patients’ oral health, and bettering the communities around them. By creating the Smiles for Life Foundation in 1998, Crown Council has been able to provide a way for dentists to serve others through charitable work. Offices partner with Ultradent Products who donate 100% of the whitening materials to this campaign.
Local dental offices are then able to select which local charity to partner with, by donating 50% of the money raised to that specific charity. The other 50% goes directly to the Smiles for Life national campaign, which distributes the funds to larger, approved charities throughout the world.
Parkcrest was proud to kick off their annual campaign this year with their local charity partner Care to Learn (whose focus is on health-hunger-hygiene related needs for children in our area). Parkcrest was honored to donate their doctor/staff time and expertise, while Ultradent generously provided the Opalescence whitening products, giving donors a brighter smile -and best of all – providing children a brighter future! In the three months of participating (April – June), Parkcrest was able to raise over $10,000 in our office, helping give back to the local children of our community by donating over $5000 to Care to Learn.
Mark your calendars to brighten your smile next spring through Parkcrest Dental Group’s Smiles for Life campaign and benefit local children!!
