HCBB CANDY2018

11th Annual Halloween Candy Buyback a sweet success!

By | Community Events, Fun Stuff, Grand Haven Blog Article

Little Smiles’ 11th Annual Halloween Candy Buyback was a big success thanks to all the kids (and grown ups) who brought in their extra candy. Over 250 pounds was collected in all. Children received $1 for every pound of candy.

This year’s winning school was Peach Plains Elementary who brought in a whopping 136 pounds! St. Mary’s came in second with 19 pounds and third place was a tie between Griffin and Walden Green (14 pounds each).

Thank you to our local community for your support and for helping to teach our little ones about making healthy choices. Peach Plains Elementary will receive $2 per pound for their effort and an amazing plaque.

Halloween Candy Buyback 2018!

By | Community Events, For Kids, Fun Stuff, Grand Haven Blog Article

Halloween is almost here! And that means it’s time for Little Smiles Grand Haven’s 11th annual Halloween Candy Buyback.  The purpose of this fun program is to encourage kids to support their local school while making healthy choices.

Be Healthy!

Our message to kids is simple: Too much Halloween candy isn’t good for you or your teeth.  So pick out your favorite candy to enjoy.  Then, bring the extra, unopened candy to Little Smiles Grand Haven and we’ll buy it back from you for $1 per pound.  It’s a win win!  (Children must be 13 years and under.)

Support your School!

Little Smiles’ Halloween Candy Buyback is also good for local schools in the Grand Haven and Spring Lake area.  Every pound of unopened candy that is delivered to Little Smiles is designated to each child’s school.  The school that brings in the most candy wins, and will receive $2 for every pound of candy that was designated to that school.  The winning schools receives an award, a check, and bragging rights for the year.  (Candy may be donated by anyone in the community—children and adults alike—and applied to the school competition.)

Bring unopened candy to Little Smiles Grand Haven (1203 S. Beechtree Street). We will be accepting candy on the following days:

  • Thursday, November 1 — 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 2 — 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

It’s Been Ten Wonderful Years!

By | Grand Haven Blog Article, Uncategorized

A lot can happen in ten years. A single general dentistry office can expand its footprint, clientele, and a community’s notions on dentistry, and trees can miraculously take root in lobbies. Since opening our doors in 2008, the Smile team has been challenging the norms of traditional dentistry with a high-quality, patient-centric, preventative approach. The Smile Grand Haven practice started as a general dentistry office with one dentist and three support staff. Today, the practice has grown through the addition of Little Smiles (pediatric dentistry), Smile Orthodontics, and more than forty team members.

The memorable moments of the past decade include not just growth of the Smile Dental Partners practice, but of countless new relationships, community partnerships and activities, and, of course, plenty of smiles.

To celebrate the past ten years, we’re holding a campaign called Ten for Ten throughout the year. In early 2019, Smile Dental Partners will donate $10,000 to local charities who help our community. Every new adult patient will be given the opportunity to select between three local charities to receive a portion of the $10,000. The organization that receives the most votes will receive the grand prize of $5,000; the second $3,000 and the third $2,000. The charities we’ve selected for patients to vote from are the Children’s Advocacy Center, the Love in Action Free Dental Clinic, and TCM Counseling. Help support these wonderful organizations and share the Ten for Ten campaign with your family and friends.

Our intent has always been to provide to our patients a personalized experience that includes a friendly, fun, and patient-focused office, state-of-the art technology, and a proactive approach to dental health. It is so rewarding to see the growth that has come from simply providing to our patients what we feel everyone deserves. We are grateful to every patient, partner, and person who helped foster the growth and success of this team.
