St. Mary's Dental in the Mechanicsville Community

At St. Mary’s, our team is passionate about giving back to the community. With that in mind, we’re proud to be associated with the following organizations:

Smiles for Life

Your Teeth Can Lend A Hand To A Child

From March through June, hundreds of dental practices throughout the U.S. and Canada professionally whiten teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in their local communities and around the world. They are members of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their communities through charitable work.

100% Of The Donations Go To The Smiles For Life Foundation

The Smiles For Life Foundation is the children’s charity arm of the Crown Council.Ultradent (makers of Boost in-office teeth whitening and Opalescence® take-home trays) donates ALL of the teeth whitening supplies, and participating Crown Council dentists donate ALL of their time to whiten teeth during the Smiles For Life campaign. Together, they offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices (donations) with 100% OF THE PROCEEDS GOING TO THE FOUNDATION TO HELP KIDS’ CHARITIES.

Since 1998, we’ve raised over $33 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities.When you pay for your teeth whitening, you’ll write your check directly to the Smiles For Life Foundation, not to the dental practice. Fifty percent of the donations are earmarked for each dental practice’s local charity partner, and the balance goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the U.S., Canada and worldwide. Participating children’s charities include Children’s Miracle Network, Children of Romania, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, CURE (in Cambodia), Smiles For Hope, and the Kids Cancer Care Foundation.

The Smiles for Life Foundation is the children’s charity organization of the Crown Council, an organization of leading-edge dentists throughout North America.  Each year over a four-month period, participating Crown Council dentists offer professional teeth whitening services at a considerably reduced price and donate the proceeds to children’s charities.  The Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation has raised more than $30 million since 1998, benefitting over 500 children’s charities across North America. 

“Smiles for Life is a win-win situation,” explains Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council and one of the founders of the Smiles for Life campaign.  “Patients get a brighter smile, our member dentists get the satisfaction of contributing to their community, and, best of all, children who really need our help get a reason to smile.”
