Smiles for Life

As a member of the Crown Council, our team is proud to help launch their 23rd annual Smiles for Life campaign, dentistry’s most successful charity, which has benefitted seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children around the world.

To make your contribution as a patient, you simply have to get your teeth whitened with us. When you pay for your teeth whitening, you’ll be making a donation directly to the Smiles For Life Foundation, not to our dental practice. When you whiten your teeth as part of this Smiles For Life campaign, you get a bright, beautiful smile and 100% of the money goes to children’s charities. In addition, you feel the satisfaction of knowing that your charitable contribution will put a smile on the face of an underprivileged child.

Did you know that our office also offers gift certificates for teeth whitening? This makes it easier than ever to give the gift of a new smile to friends and loved ones while also giving hope to a child in need. Fortunately, if you aren’t interested in whitening and would prefer to make a direct donation that is wonderful!

Note: when asked to enter an email address, please type “” and we will provide you with a receipt for your charitable donation. Also, our office is listed under Dr. Kendall Skinner, not Excellence In Dentistry.

Since its inception, the Smiles for Life campaign has collected more than $45 million and maintains a strong longtime partnership with the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, which supports Child Life Zones in Children’s Hospitals across the United States.

“We believe the Smiles for Life initiative is the largest charity of its kind in dentistry,” said Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council. “The unique concept of whitening material being donated by Ultradent, dentists contributing all of the time and experience necessary to complete the procedure, and the patient being able to make a direct donation to Smiles for Life for the value of the whitening, has proven to be an extremely effective way to both whiten a smile and help a child smile for life.”
