Brightening Futures with Smiles for Schools
During the month of April each year, Danville Dental Associates reaches out to the community to support our area students with a project called “Smile for Schools”. This event assists schools by offering at-home bleaching kits regularly valued at $399, for a $100 donation to be given to the patient’s designated school of choice. These can be public or private schools and may be primary, middle, high schools or special needs schools in the Danville City or Pittsylvania County area.
Our community events coordinator, Teresa Cook, will be contacting each school in the Danville City - Pittsylvania County area. These can be public or private schools and may be primary, middle or high schools.
The schools may decide how they wish to use the funds they receive from Danville Dental’s patients. It may be distributed to the school’s PTO or PTA, an athletic or academic boosters club, the band boosters or any worthwhile area of need for that particular school. During our 2018 event 36 patients were seen enabling a donation of $3,600 to the schools. In 2017, $8,400 was raised during the event for a combined total of $12,000, given to support local schools.
