Over 20 Newport and Bright Now! Dental volunteers from the dental offices in Southern California will be on hand to ensure that the maximum number of patients can receive their dental care.

Access to affordable dental care is a crisis for many Americans, as nearly forty percent of the population lacks dental insurance of any kind. Newport Dental and Bright Now! Dental employees are committed to getting more people the care they need which is why they are joining forces to donate complimentary dental services. “Neglected dental care can have serious health impacts,” explains Dr. Shorouq Sahawneh. “Our mission is to deliver Smiles for Everyone, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to serve this community with a Day of Giving.” Dr. Sahawneh will be joined by Dr. Nazila Bagheri, Dr. David Maricondo, and Dr. Ali Shahrokh plus a team of hygienists, dental assistants and other support staff to deliver great dental care on October 22nd.
Since 2011, the Smiles for Everyone Foundation has delivered over 12,000 smiles and $10.5 million in donated dentistry around the world. The foundation organizes frequent Days of Giving at locations in California and beyond. The next Day of Giving event will be held in Denver, Colorado in November.
The teams have set a goal to provide dental services to over 50 Orange County residents at this year’s Day of Giving event. Interested individuals should call early to reserve a spot. For more information and appointments call 714.923.1057.
