Smile Doctors, United States’ largest ortho-focused dental support organisation (OSO), is kicking off one month of giveback initiatives in November. Through the “30 Days of Thanks and Gratitude” campaign, Smile Doctors will be working across the organisation and communities they serve to change lives, one smile at a time.
Smile Doctors team members, partners, and patients will work with their local food banks to collect non-perishable donations. Across participating locations, Smile Doctors has set a goal of donating 10,000 non-perishable food items. Through this effort, the organisation plans to provide as many as 8,500 meals to families this holiday season.
“This is a special time of year when we reflect on what we’re most thankful for and express gratitude for what we have. Smile Doctors is incredibly grateful for the community support of our local practices,” said Scott Law, founder and chief clinical officer of Smile Doctors. “Through ’30 Days of Thanks and Gratitude’, we have the opportunity to give back and highlight acts of kindness as an example of what we can do as a community year-round. We’re thrilled to bring this programme back for another year!”
To extend the opportunity to give back to their local communities, Smile Doctors will be expanding its current giveback initiative, “Smiles from the Heart,” which offers free orthodontic services for patients in need. In 2022, the programme will include partnerships with national and regional non-profit organisations.
