March 5, 2015 – Smiles Dental played host to a Free Dental Day at their Anchorage locations during their annual Gift of Smiles effort on February 27th. Residents of the community were able to schedule a one hour appointment for either a cleaning or restorative dental work. The company created Gift of Smiles for the sole purpose of improving the lives and oral health within the communities they serve.

This year, Smiles Dental Midtown is pleased to report they provided free dental care to 18 patients from the community. These were patients who would not otherwise be able to afford high-quality dental care. All total, the donation of time and resources by Smiles Dental was just over $8,600.

Smiles Dental Southside is also happy to announce they provided free dental care to 13 patients from the community with a total donation of time and resources of over $10,700.

The difference Gift of Smiles makes within the community is felt by all members, even those who did not receive a gift directly:

‘So amazing! I work with low income populations and companies like Smiles make a huge difference in the community! Thank you for your support.’ -Amanda

‘We are happy to be able to provide this charitable service to community members who do not have regular access to high quality dental care,’ says Dr. Dixson, President and CEO of Smiles Dental. ‘Gift of Smiles is truly the best gift we can give the communities we serve.’
