How Smiles for Life Works


Help improve a child’s life by having your teeth whitened. Sound easy? That’s because it is. The 16th annual Smiles For Life Campaign begins today, which means dental patients nationwide can brighten a child’s future just by visiting one of the 5 locations of Harris Dental. The campaign runs from March through June, and 100% of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures done at Harris Dental are donated to worthy children’s charities, both locally and around the world. As an additional incentive, each tooth whitening patient enjoys their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. Patients love the unique opportunity to improve the lives of children in need while also enhancing their own smile.

Since its creation, the Crown Council’s Smiles For Life Campaign has raised over $33 million for seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged kids. Donations from last year alone totaled $1.5 million. Smiles For Life hopes to break the $35 million mark for total collections during this year’s drive.

“Smiles For Life allows a person to help children in need by doing something that benefits them as well,” explains Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council. “Harris Dental donates their time and expertise, while Ultradent generously provides all Opalescence whitening products. You receive a brighter smile, and, best of all, provide children with a brighter future.”

This is a wonderful and easy way for members of the community to help make a real difference in a child’s life. Harris Dental offers gift certificates for teeth whitening, making it easier than ever to give the gift of a new smile to friends and loved ones, while also giving hope to children in need.

Half of the donations raised by Harris Dental are given to Johnjay & Rich’s Christmas Wish, a local children’s charity, with the balance going to the Smiles for Life Foundation for distribution among approved charities throughout the world. Stay tuned to see how much Smiles For Life is able to raise this year. Better yet, participate!
