TWOHIG FAMILY DENTISTRY SEEKS TO RAISE RECORD AMOUNT
DURING 2014 SMILES FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN
Help improve a child’s life by having your teeth whitened. Sound easy? That’s because it is.
The 16th annual Smiles for Life Campaign has begun, which means dental patients nationwide can brighten a child’s future just by visiting local Crown Council dentists Dr. Tim Twohig, Dr. Catherine McGalloway, & Dr. Peter Blough.
The campaign runs from March through June, and 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures done at Twohig Family Dentistry, 211 S. National Ave., are donated to worthy children’s charities, both locally and around the world. As an additional incentive, each tooth whitening patient enjoys their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. Patients love the unique opportunity to improve the lives of children in need while also enhancing their own smile.
Since its creation, the Crown Council’s Smiles For Life Campaign has raised over $33 million for seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged kids. Donations from last year alone totaled $1.5 million. Smiles For Life hopes to break the $35 million mark for total collections during this year’s drive.
“Smiles For Life allows a person to help children in need by doing something that benefits them as well,” said Greg Anderson, Crown Council Director. “The Doctors donate their time and expertise, while Ultradent generously provides all Opalescence whitening products. You receive a brighter smile, and, best of all, provide children with a brighter future.”
This is a wonderful and easy way for members of the community to help make a real difference in a child’s life. Twohig Family Dentistry offers gift certificates for teeth whitening, making it easier than ever to give the gift of a new smile to friends and loved ones, while also giving hope to children in need.
Half of the donations raised by Twohig Family Dentistry are given to Solutions Center, a local charity, with the balance going to the Smiles for Life Foundation for distribution among approved charities throughout the world. Stay tuned to see how much Smiles For Life is able to raise this year. Better yet, participate!
Solutions Center serves victims of homelessness and domestic violence, operating four shelters, providing domestic violence counseling and offering general advocacy and support to those in need.
In 2013, Solutions Center provided shelter to 545 men, women and children, including more than 100 victims of domestic violence.
Funding from Twohig Family Dentistry’s Smile For Life program has been earmarked for redecorating the children’s playroom at the Women’s Shelter and providing new educational toys.
“We are so grateful to be named a recipient of this funding,” said Administrative Services Director Karla Breister. “And, we know the women and children staying at our shelter will enjoy this gift for years to come!”
