Appointment Confirmations

By | Community Events, Featured, For Kids, Fun Stuff, Health & Wellness, Uncategorized

Smile has a new appointment reminder and confirmation system!

While this system will be more user friendly and provide more flexibility for our patients, new systems always require a bit of adjustment and patience.  Because the upgrade required a new software provider, email confirmations will start with a “welcome email”.  Please watch for this email in your inbox or junk mail.

If you are used to seeing confirmations and are no longer receiving them by email or text, please let us know!

Extra Halloween Candy?

By | Community Events, For Kids, Fun Stuff, Health & Wellness

Little witches and goblins returned home from trick-or-treating this year and sorted through their bags of candy, sorting their very favorites.  And all that candy in the house is fun for a couple days.   Yes, even we enjoy it too!

The problem is that it lingers for weeks and some never gets eaten at all.  As a parent, you can rest easy knowing your kids’ extra candy can be donated to a good cause – Operation Gratitude.

Op Grat image

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages filled with food, entertainment, hygiene, and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home.

In 2015 alone, 252,723 pounds of candy were collected by the dental community for Operation Gratitude Care Packages!!!   Since Smile began collecting candy for Operation Gratitude in 2008, our community has donated over 7,000 pounds of candy!

If you donate your extra candy at Little Smiles prior to November 4th, we will buy it back from your child at $1 per pound.  Another $1 per pound will be donated to the local school of your choice!  Will you help us make 2016 a record year for donations of candy?

Halloween is just days away and that means the return of the Halloween Candy Buyback!
