Grant to Provide Free Dental Care for People in Need
Recently, they awarded a $5,000 grant to support the foundation’s Community Smile Projects and International Smile Projects, which have delivered over 13,000 smiles in communities across the nation and around the world.
In October, DSG’s grant helped sponsor a Day of Giving in Orange, CA where 50 individuals in need from the local community received over $46,000 in donated dentistry. DSG also supports the foundation’s Smile Makeovers throughout the year by donating lab services to the program.
“Changing smiles and enhancing practices is why we do, what we do, every day at DSG,“ said Matt Morgan, DSG President & CEO, and added; “we are proud to partner with Smile Brands Inc. in support of the Smiles for Everyone Foundation.”
DSG’s grant will allow the foundation to continue to expand its program reach and provide additional dental services for people in need around the world.
