Ways We Give Back

Mark R Laurin Dental & Associates participates yearly in the Smiles for Life Campaign to help children in need.

Since its creation in 1998, the Crown Council’s Smiles For Life Campaign has raised more than $40 million for seriously ill, disabled, and disadvantaged kids thanks to participation from local communities and dental practices. Half of the donations raised by Crown Council dentists are given to their preferred local children’s charity. The rest goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation to support its national and international initiatives, including programs in the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, and Guatemala. Smiles For Life also maintains a strong longtime partnership with the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation supporting Child Life Zones in Children’s Hospitals across the United States.

The campaign runs every year from March 1 until June 30, and 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures done at Mark R Laurin Dental & Associates are contributed directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation. This foundation uses donations from the community to help fund worthy children’s charities and humanitarian work, both locally and around the world.

Tooth whitening patients receive their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. They can enhance their own smile while also improving the lives of disadvantaged children. Mark R Laurin Dental & Associates donates their time and expertise, while Ultradent generously provides all Opalescence whitening products. Patients receive a brighter smile and help children get a brighter future.
