Sending Smiles to Puerto Rico

Double-Duty Donations: Sending SmilesSince the grand-opening of KinderSmile Community Oral Health Center in August 2016, our team has welcomed more than 2,000 previously underserved patients into our nonprofit dental
home. We pride ourselves on treating every single patient with the same level of dignity, professionalism and care to ensure that they all gain optimal oral health, regardless of their level of education or socioeconomic status.

Our hearts go out to the families of Puerto Rico who have suffered through the devastation of Hurricane Maria and been displaced from their homes and routines. In an effort to share our philosophy of “oral health for all,” we want to bring back some normalcy to these families and send smiles to Puerto Rico through a multipurpose fundraiser.

For the months of October and November 2017, KinderSmile Foundation will match every dollar donated to the Sending Smiles campaign with a free toothbrush for Puerto Rico. We will also welcome children of Puerto Rico who have come to New Jersey as a safe haven to receive free dental services at our Bloomfield dental home.

You can help us reach our goal of $10,000 and 10,000 toothbrushes by donating online through the link below OR mailing a check payable to KinderSmile Foundation at 10 Broad St, Bloomfield, NJ 07003. Your charitable contribution is tax-deductible.
