On Sunday, February 16th, three doctors from Bright Now!® Dental provided underserved communities surrounding Mesa, AZ with the chance to receive free dental care! Dr. Abdullah Ahmad, Dr. Harlean Ahuja, and Dr. Leen Qutachi gathered with over 25 support staff to host a Day of Giving with the Smiles for Everyone Foundation.

Volunteers were able to provide free exams, cleanings, fillings, extractions and more with the help of a $2,000 grant provided by the Sundt Foundation. The Sundt Foundation was established by Sundt Construction, Inc. to give its employee owners the opportunity to support organizations in their communities that improve the lives of disadvantaged children and adults. Thanks to their support, the Mesa Team served nearly 40 low-income individuals from local nonprofits such as Harvest Compassion Center, a local food bank; Phoenix Rescue Mission, an organization that fights hunger, homelessness and addiction; and Arizona Center for Youth Recourses.

“I’m more than grateful for this work today,” exclaimed patient Gloria R. “My family and I struggle to be able to get work done and I don’t know how bad our teeth would be without this today.”

The Smiles for Everyone Foundation like to thank both the Sundt Foundation and the entire Team of volunteers for donating their money, time and skills to help others! With their hard work and determination, they were able to bridge the gap between providers and those who are unable to afford quality dental care.

The next Day of Giving that the Foundation is hosting will be at Johnson Family Dental in Santa Barbara, CA on March 14th. Please visit for more information.
