We believe everyone should enjoy the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile! Our team also loves to give back to our community at the same time! Dr. Atkinson and Dr. Wilkinson and the rest of our team have multiple programs that benefit others.
Refer a Friend. Help a Charity.
Send a friend or family member to Smiles Dental for great-quality dental care, and we’ll return the favor. For every referred patient that completes an appointment with us, Smiles Dental will donate $10 to OHSU Doernbecher Foundation. We love our current patients, new patients and helping our community. That’s the Smiles Dental way! If you would like to learn more about OHSU Doernbecher Foundation, visit their website!
Gift of Smiles
Gift of Smiles is a free dental day held at our office to provide dental care to those who other wise are not able to regularly afford or receive such care. Our office is serving patients throughout our community! All appointments are scheduled in one-hour increments on a first come, first serve basis. During the appointment, patients have the opportunity to receive either a cleaning or restorative dental work. Restorative work covers fillings, extractions, or anything that can be done in one hour that does not require labs.
Last year our Smiles Dental locations combined, donated nearly $130,000 in free dental services and served over 300 patients. The company has given over $710,000 during Gift of Smiles since its inception.
Smiles for Veterans
Smiles Dental is honoring our veterans with the gift of good health during the month of November. The dental practice invites community members in location to nominate a veteran to receive up to $3000 toward their dental treatment plan.
Our nomination period for Smiles for Veterans 2016 is now closed. Thank you to all who submitted nominations!
According to the United States Department of Veteran Affairs , as of September 30, 2015 there were 598,000 veterans in Washington State. Of these, approximately 128,240 unique patients received healthcare at a VA health care facility. The Center for Disease Control shows the number of American adults in 2014, ages 18-64, with a dental visit in the past year was approximately 62%. The same study by the CDC shows around 20% of American adults have no usual source of healthcare and that 11% did not receive needed dental care due to cost.
