On October 20th, volunteers from Bright Now! Dental delivered Smiles in San Diego County. Six dentists, seven hygienists, and their dedicated support staff hosted the Temecula Day of Giving, where members of underserved communities were able to benefit from over $61,000 of donated dentistry. Individuals were referred to the event by local nonprofit organizations, such as Valley Resource Center, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley, and Boys and Girls Club of Southwest County. Services provided included cleanings, fillings, extractions, and more.

The Temecula Team cared for 55 low income, undersinsured patients that showed much appreciation for the services they received. “I met some very nice people,” said patient Nicole F. “The doctor was very well versed in my condition because she has it too. I am very thankful to have gotten treatment from her today.” The Team was also commended for displaying compassion toward their patients. “It’s very fortunate to have people who give back,” exclaimed patient Charles B., “You guys are the best and very caring!”

The Smiles for Everyone Foundation would like to thank all of the volunteers, including Dr. Codruta Julia Fosman, Dr. Stanley Hong, Dr. Richard Lim, Dr. Jim Park, Dr. Osbalda Reina, and Dr. Ali Shahrokh. Additionally, the Foundation would like to thank each of the seven hygienists who travelled from Orange Country, San Diego County, and the Inland Empire to serve those in need in Temecula. It was their dedication that allowed us to fulfill our mission of delivering Smiles for Everyone!

The next Day of Giving that the Foundation is hosting will be at Bright Now! Dental in Herndon, VA on November 2nd. Please visit for more information.
