As we reflect on 2017, we are grateful for the good things that happened and the countless uplifting moments we enjoyed because of what we do. At the same time, we are reminded of the natural disasters that affected the lives of those surrounding us. From the devastating hurricanes in Florida and Houston, to the wildfires impacting lives across California, Smile Generation®-trusted teams stepped up to serve their communities during a time of need.
Serving didn’t stop there. The heart and desire to serve were carried out throughout the year, changing the lives of those across the world. From Phoenix, AZ to Ethiopia, see other ways Smile Generation-trusted teams served in 2017 highlighted below:
- Provided over million in donated dentistry which includes million in one day as part of Smile Generation Serve Day, where all Smile Generation-trusted offices served over 2,000 patients
- Donated over 58,000 volunteer hours from Smile Generation-trusted teams
- Enhanced the lives of 30,000 people in Ethiopia by raising over 50K for clean, safe drinking water through charity: water

As we enjoy the start of 2018, we thank those who participated in these accomplishments and ask ourselves, “How will we create healthier and happier lives for those in 2018?”
