Shoreline Periodontics challenges their local dental community and their community at large to join them and donate to the Hearts of Gold Program. The practice, made up of a dedicated staff and two respected periodontists, pledges to match up to $10,000 donated to this generous program each year. Motivated by the financial difficulties many in their area are feeling amid the pandemic, they believe these efforts are essential now more than ever. Already raising $1,500 of gold and donations this year, they hope to inspire additional participation by extending the challenge until next Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2021.

Dr. Gregory Toback, periodontist at Shoreline Periodontics, founded the Hearts of Gold Program in 2008. Patients interested in participating in this program can donate their gold crowns after a tooth extraction. Each year, Dr. Toback and his caring periodontal team collect these gold dental crowns, match the monetary value of them, and donate to a local non-profit organization that supports families and individuals in need in New London County. Each year they have donated to various causes in their community, donating upwards of $1,800.

In 2019 Shoreline Periodontics started partnering with a new non-profit organization supporting New London County, the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut. This organization fights for a safety net of global health and human services, to end hunger and food insecurity, and to provide employment training and education for those who are homeless. Their mission is, “To inspire and coordinate the generosity and commitment that sustains a united, thriving community.”

This year they are challenging their community to not only donate their gold crowns, but any gold they no longer want or use as well. Shoreline Periodontics will match what is donated, up to $10,000 annually, totaling $20,000 donated to those in need.

As compassionate periodontists, Drs. Gregory Toback and Marianne Urbanski strive to not only provide the support their community needs but the cutting-edge care their patients need as well. Using precise imaging for confident diagnostics as well as minimally invasive surgical techniques, they are the trusted authorities for tooth extractions in their New London, CT and Westerly, RI communities. In fact, they even offer the gold standard in tooth replacement solutions—dental implants—at their periodontal practice. Many patients who visit Shoreline Periodontics in need of a tooth extraction, whether due to oral trauma, advanced gum disease, or another cause, can receive same-day dental implants. This allows patients to receive a tooth extraction and a dental implant replacement tooth in the same day.

Those interested in standing with Shoreline Periodontics and contributing to the Hearts of Gold program can call 860-443-2428 to learn more. Patients interested in scheduling a consultation for a tooth extraction can visit and choose their preferred practice location.
