“That day was awesome! I am so grateful for the staff and the facility for providing my children dental care,” said Maricela Soto.

Bright Now! Dental gave back to one local community in Denver, Colo. by providing dental services to underprivileged children in partnership with the Denver Children’s Home (“DCH”) as part of their “Bright Now! Dental Gives Back” initiative. This initiative further expands the company’s goal of community support and giving, following a successful and enlightening journey to Paraguay by a team of executives from Smile Brands Inc., and dentists from Smile Brands Inc.’s affiliated dental offices, to offer their dental services to communities in desperate need of attention.
On Sunday, February 26, the Aurora office welcomed 26 children to receive complimentary dental services. Additionally, the staff was able to treat 6 parents/guardians who were also in need of dental services in an effort to service as many people as possible. Bright Now! Dental provided an array of services at no cost including exams, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and extractions. The office will also provide a set of braces to at least one patient, with others pending further orthodontic consultations.
“That day was awesome! I am so grateful for the staff and the facility for providing my children dental care,” said Maricela Soto, a parent of one of the children. As another parent, Elisa Galaviz, said, “They did a very good job; my family was in the office for five hours. I had no idea that they were going to do so much work on my son’s teeth! His recovery from the surgery was pretty painful but totally worth it!”
The dental staff team members who participated in the “Bright Now Dental Gives Back” event were also overjoyed to have made such a difference.
“I was really touched by the excitement that one boy had that his mother was getting her work done,” said Jodi V. Taylor, office manager of the Aurora office. “He was so happy that she too could be seen, and he held her hand through her entire visit.”
The children had the opportunity for face-painting and crafts while they waited which became an outlet for them to show their gratitude.
“It was great to be a part of the lives of these wonderful kids for a day and serve their dental needs,” said Vidhya Sampath, D.D.S. “I was overwhelmed by the hardships the parents face, and yet they selflessly put their children's needs ahead of their own. These kids are all so rich at heart. I have grown as a person having witnessed their loving and generous nature. One girl, Laura, who is a choir singer in her school, made my assistant and me ‘thank you’ bracelets. This definitely was one of my best Sundays in a long time.”
Smile Brands Inc. and its subsidiaries support the local teams who plan to continue this corporate giving initiative with similar events in more cities.
