Smiles for Charity!

Smiles for Charity!

by Alex Hirsch (SU)

As a new decade unfolds, new opportunities and more blessings abound. There is so much to smile about, and Marion Smile Center is leading the way for a more beautiful and healthy future for others locally and internationally. 

Our dentist, dental hygienists, and staff here at the Marion Smile Center enjoy doing good for others. Here are some of our charitable plans for 2020 and how you can take part in it.

Dental Care for Everyone 

The health of our teeth and gums affects our overall health, so we should take our dental health seriously. A dental hygienist can uncover issues lying behind your pearly whites during a routine cleaning, and the dentist can then perform a checkup. However, many people cannot afford to go to a dentist for a dental checkup or get a professional dental cleaning.

With this in mind, Dr. Mark Marion and his team of highly qualified dental professionals decided to create more opportunities for people to smile. This plan was achieved by partnering with the Smiles for Life Foundation and starting the Whitening for Charity campaign.

Whitening for Charity and Our Community: You Whiten, We Donate 100%!

The Whitening for Charity campaign started back in 2016. To date, we have raised over $55,000 for charity. Each year, a worthy charity receives four months’ worth of all proceeds from our teeth whitening services. This is made possible by Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems, one of the institutions powering the Smiles for Life Foundation.

Opalescence provides four months’ worth of whitening products to us for FREE, and the dental specialists here at Marion Smile Center in turn provide our dental whitening services for FREE. As a result, this collaboration gives 100% of teeth whitening proceeds to charity.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the cause, because the Whitening for Charity campaign has become an annual success. Last year, we raised over $16,000 for two charity organizations: the Smiles for Life Foundation and our local fire department, Harmony Fire District #22. Every year, we achieve something that improves our community and our world. 

Marion Smile Center Mission Trip to Guatemala in 2020 

Dr. Marion is genuinely passionate about contributing to the community and beyond. This year, the goal is far beyond Greater Pittsburgh: Our team will go to Guatemala on a humanitarian dental mission trip.

From September 4-10, 2020, our team will work at a Guatemalan dental clinic and provide dental care for free. We will focus on the Q’eqchi communities in the country’s Polochic region, which is located in east-central Guatemala. Through this mission, underprivileged children will gain a chance to free and dedicated dental healthcare.
