Smile Generation is proud of our network of trusted dentists across the country who care about helping people in their local communities and around the world. When we come together to serve others, families grow stronger, bonds grow tighter, and friendships become firmer—all while communities in general (and smiles in particular) grow healthier and happier.

Smile Generation Serve Day

Smile Generation Serve Day is an annual day of service and part of a nationwide campaign of giving that focuses on providing donated dental care to underserved patients and community service projects across the country.
