These are individuals that are changing lives; it's the least we can do to show our gratitude fo the difference they make.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
St. Louis dentist and current president of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health Dr. Dan Sindelar has the honor of representing Missouri in the Smiles for America campaign. Smiles for America celebrates American heroes across the nation by providing a smile makeover for these deserving individuals. Only one “top dentist” is chosen from each of the 50 states. Dr. Dan Sindelar of Sindelar Dental is proud to be the representative from Missouri and is now accepting submissions for “our Missouri hero,” who is to be chosen in October.
Eligible heroes are ordinary Americans who selflessly give and do for others. They commit themselves to improving their communities, making such a difference yet asking nothing in return. Heroes can come from any walk of life. One hero from each state will be chosen to receive a free smile makeover by the participating dentist in his or her state. "I’m very honored to be part of this cause," says Dr. Sindelar. "These are individuals that are changing lives; it’s the least we can do to show our gratitude for the difference they make."
This is the inaugural year for the Smiles for America campaign, which will culminate on the Friday before Thanksgiving (November 16, 2012) with one dentist from each of the 50 states simultaneously giving back to these American heroes who have done so much. This event is a way for dentist to give thanks to these heroes, who so often put others ahead of themselves. This is an opportunity for them to receive something they would not—or perhaps could not—get for themselves.
“We will not ask anything in return except that they continue to share their lives and hearts as they have already done,” says Dr. Dean Lodding, former President of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the participating dentist from Illinois. “We want to help inspire the spirit of heroism and giving that will make all of our lives just that much better.”
Dr. Sindelar, in addition to being the president of AAOSH, is also a co-founder and has one of the most technologically advanced dental practices in the Midwest. He is proud to be a part of the Smiles for America campaign and is looking forward to giving back to the Missouri hero chosen.
