Our practice places a huge emphasis on dental care for all. Because of this belief, we have always supported initiatives to bring dental care to underserved populations. Since the inception of their practice, Drs. Hugh and Anne were huge supporters of local organizations to provide oral health care. They specifically enjoyed working with Shriners, Medicaid, and the High Hope organization, providing free or reduced cost dental care.
Continuing in their footsteps, our practice partners with numerous groups to support those in need. Some of those initiatives include the Gala for Smiles, Brighter Smiles for Brighter Futures, the Georgia Baptist Dental Mission, the Hebron Dental Clinic, and Doctors Without Borders.
Because oral health is a part of overall health, we feel it is important to support a healthy lifestyle. Since healthy patterns are more successful when started early in life, we are proponents of childhood exercise. Supporting school athletic programs helps to ensure that children grow up physically and mentally strong. Look for our sponsorships at South Gwinnett High School, Grayson High School, Shiloh High School, Brookwood High School, and Loganville High School, among others.
Gala for Smiles
This initiative, started by the Northern District Dental Society, raises monies to support area dental clinics which provide free or reduced cost dentistry to Georgia citizens. Our practice has donated well over $70,000 to this wonderful cause. Find out more at NDDS.org.
Brighter Smiles for Brighter Futures
Our doctors have partnered with dozens of area dental offices to raise money and awareness to combat breast cancer. A vision of Dr. Bruce Carter, the BSBF campaign raises money to support the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation. By donating whitening services, our office has helped to raise over $700,000 to purchase digital mammography equipment to aid in the early detection of breast cancer. This would not have been possible without our wonderful patients’ support. For more information, visit BrighterSmiles.org.
Georgia Baptist Dental Mission
A unique dental setting within a reconfigured RV allows us to bring the dental office to the patient. Our doctors volunteer professional services throughout the metro area as the unit passes through the state.
Doctors Without Borders
Doctors and various other medical specialists travel abroad to impoverished populations to provide medical and dental care worldwide. Dr. Mark has joined the team and has traveled as far as Cusco, Peru. There they provided treatment to orphans who had no other access to medical care.
