Smiles for Hope


Amanda Orvis, RDH


Announcing the kick-off of our annual Smiles for Hope Whitening Campaign.

Once again, our office has partnered with Hope Arising Charity Foundation. Hope Arising is a non-profit organization that benefits children and families in Dera Ethiopia. Through our partnership with this amazing organization we are able to help provide dental and medical services, as well as education opportunities for hundreds of children and families in Dera every year.

March 1st through June 30th all whitening procedures done in our office will be provided at a discounted rate, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Hope Arising Charity Foundation. All donations are tax-deductible.


Donation Levels:

Level 1: In-office whitening and take-home whitening gel with custom fit trays

Level 2: In-office whitening

Level 3: Take-home whitening gel and custom fit trays

Level 4: Flat donation of your choice


Hope Arising has two ways you can donate: via credit card through PayPal, or by check

You do not have to be a patient of record at our office to participate in this campaign. All we require is a quick exam to make sure the whitening participant is safe to whiten.

Your bright white smile can make a lasting impression on Dera through your donations and support. So, call us today to schedule your whitening appointment!

From March – June, our offices will be participating in Smiles for Life.

What is Smiles for Life? The Smiles for Life Foundation raises money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in our local communities and around the world.  It also helps sponsor Dental Humanitarian trips throughout the world.

How does it work?  We welcome you to our office, whether it’s your first visit or you are a long time patient.  Ultradent donates the whitening materials, and our Dentists donate their time.  Together, we offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices (donations).  You may choose between three different whitening options:

1. Professionally made-to-fit-your-mouth trays and 8 tubes of take home whitening gel
2. In Office Whitening
3. In Office Whitening with take home trays and 8 tubes of take home whitening gel

Where does my donation go?  No proceeds stay in the office.  100% of your donation goes to children’s charities!  50% will go to Hope Arising, a charity that our offices work directly with.  The other 50% is given to a children’s charity approved by the Smiles For Life Foundation. And for you, it is all tax deductible!

What are the benefits to professional whitening? Whitening helps you look and feel younger.  And when you professionally whiten your teeth, you are ensuring a safer, more effective way of whitening.  Over the counter items may be quicker and cheaper, but they are not tailored to your specific mouth and are not as effective.  If you have ever wanted to whiten, now is the time.  Everybody wins!
