Gift of Smiles

The 1st Annual Gift of Smiles raised over $70,000.00!  A heartfelt thanks to all who supported the Gift of Smiles.  Hope to see you all again next year!

Amazing things happen when communities rally around a vital cause.  As a pediatric dentist in our community for 30 years, I have had the privelege of knowing and caring for countless children and adults with disabilities.  Their stories, their struggles, and their dreams have inspired me beyond words.  Because of them, I have found a deep calling to close the gaps that exist in dental healthcare for people with special needs.  With your support of A Gift of Smiles, we can make a difference in so many lives that are already immensely complex.

A Gift of Smiles is an inititative to simplify and broaden the access to dental healthcare for people with disabilities by removing exisiting financial, clinical and societal barriers.  This initiative will ultimately creat a foundation that will bridge the gaps families face so they can receive the dental care their loved ones need, regardless of insurance or provider limitations.  The goal of our inagural event is to raise awareness and resources around this critical issue.


Best regards.

Dwight J. Ashby, DDS
