Supporting our community means more than just providing state of the art orthodontic treatment and care. It also means that we are focused on understanding the needs of our local population, schools, businesses, clubs, and places of religious worship. As a business, we are more successful when our community as a whole is successful.
Each year, we choose many athletic teams, organizations, and individuals to support. That support can be financial or through the donation of products, services, or our time. The value of our annual contributions has been well over $30,000 each year. We are proud to support our community with a portion of our profits or our services, and we feel we have been repaid ten fold by the positive benefits of our support.
We've raised over $2,000 this year
Smiles for Schools
For 2011, we would like to try something different. Due to the difficult economic times, our local schools are suffering dramatic cuts in funding for important programs. We would like to be a business that supports our schools in their important mission to educate our children. In 2011 we will donate $100 to the schools of our patients who start full orthodontic treatment in our office. This type of direct giving to schools will be something new and unprecedented in our office. Similar programs are in existence at a small number of offices around the country and we immediately admired these offices for their dedication to their patients. Our office believes that our annual contributions would best serve our community if they were placed directly into the school programs that need it most. We are proud to present this offer to our patients and we are hopeful that the money will be put good use immediately.
