It's the people that matter. It's not the techniques [and] it's not the exact procedures because that all changes…it's how you treat other people.
Ballston Lake, New York (Vocus) April 10, 2010
A dentist in a small community in upstate New York has demonstrated a big commitment to charitable causes throughout his career. At his Ballston Lake cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Colin Morton is participating in the Smiles for Life program for the 10th year in a row. In this program, patients who are interested in teeth whitening can receive treatment from a participating dentist at a greatly reduced fee. 100% of proceeds are donated directly to highly regarded children’s charities such as St. Jude Hospital, the Children’s Miracle Network, and many others. 50% of the funds raised by Dr. Colin Morton’s practice are collected and distributed to nationwide charities by the Smiles for Life program. The remaining 50% will go to Double Ranch, a local charity of choice located in Luzerne, NY which provides specialized programs to support children and families living with life-threatening illnesses.
The Smiles for Life campaign is made possible by dentists such as Dr. Morton who donate their time and materials, and by Zoom!® Teeth Whitening manufacturer Discus Dental - who donates teeth whitening products. Patients who have their teeth whitened as part of the Smiles for Life Program do so at a considerable discount. They pay for their services by writing a check directly to Smiles for Life. Patients get a beautiful, affordable and whiter smile and charities receive funds that go towards the health and education of children from around the world. Since 1998, the Smiles for Life program has raised more than $25 million dollars for needy children.
Smiles for Life is sponsored by the Crown Council, an association of cosmetic, sedation, and family dentists who are committed to providing high-quality care, staying up-to-date on new procedures and techniques, and giving back to their communities and those in need. Clifton Park implant dentist Dr. Colin Morton is a proud member of the Crown Council and shares their commitment to excellence in dentistry.
The 2010 Smiles for Life campaign runs from March to June. Patients can schedule an appointment during this time to participate in the program and have their teeth whitened for charity. For those interested in porcelain veneers in Ballston Lake, New York and other dentistry procedures, Dr. Morton offers a wide range of cosmetic, reconstructive, and general dental treatments.
