"It's a unique opportunity to improve the lives of disadvantaged children, while also enhancing your own smile." - Greg Anderson, Director, the Crown Council.
SALT LAKE CITY, UT, March 05, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This year marks the 21st year that the Crown Council has led its annual Smiles for Life Campaign. The innovative and impactful effort led by the Council, a prestigious alliance of leading-edge dentists who are strongly committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer, and serving communities through charitable work, runs from March 1 until June 30th. The campaign creates an amazing opportunity for a visit to the dentist to help make a difference in the lives of seriously ill, disabled and economically-disadvantaged kids locally and across the globe.
To support this deserving cause, one just schedules a teeth-whitening treatment at a participating a Crown Council dentist office nationwide. The member dentist donates his or her time and the service is even provided at a steeply-discounted rate, thanks to 100 percent of the whitening materials being generously donated by longstanding strategic partner Ultradent Products, Inc. All of the money used to pay for the service goes to children's charities and humanitarian work, both locally and around the world.
"It's a unique opportunity to improve the lives of disadvantaged children, while also enhancing your own smile," asserts Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council. "It's just a win-win situation all around. This is only possible thanks to the passion and dedication of our volunteer dentists and the wide range of Opalescence whitening products that Ultradent provides each year. The Ultradent team has worked really hard to earn its reputation as the nation's premier 'tooth whitening company.' Donations may also be made directly to the campaign by clicking here.
Over the past 21 years, the Smiles For Life campaign has collected over $42,000,000.00, half of which is in turn donated to a local charity of the Crown Council member's choice. The remaining money goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation, which supports national and international oral health and other programs benefiting economically-disadvantaged children across the world, including the Dominican Republic, Nepal, Bolivia, and Guatemala. Smiles For Life also maintains a strong longtime partnership with the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation which supports Child Life Zones in Children's Hospitals across the United States.
