Giving Back

Our 9th Annual Sharing Smiles Event is Almost Here!

Saturday, March 16th, will mark our NINTH Sharing Smiles event. This is a day where we offer free dental care to community members who are in need but without means to get the care that they need. We invite community members, ages six and up to join us for FREE dental care.

Our Sharing Smiles events started nine years ago, when Dr. Wilk asked his staff (a bit smaller at that time) to come in and volunteer on a Saturday, and to give of their time and talents to serve the community. Over the years, we have treated hundreds of patients at no charge, donating well over $100,000 of dental care to community members in need.

This year, in 2019, we will have 4-5 dentists, 4-5 hygienists, 4-5 dental assistants and more front office and supporting staff here to serve our great community! Our team will be made up of our staff, some family members and team members from PJ’s Dental Lab and Sheboygan Smile Center!

Thank you, in advance to everyone is coming together to make this day possible, including Perc Place and Sal’s Pizzeria for donating food to our volunteer staff! We just love our community!

If you are in need of dental care, we invite you to join us on Saturday, March 16th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m.

Kindness, Love and Sharing Smiles

Many of us know exactly where we were on this day seventeen years ago. We know who we were with and what we were doing. We watched on TV as the unthinkable happened and we likely had mixed emotions as the day unfolded. 

Today we remember those who bravely ran into the buildings to help strangers. We remember all of those who volunteered to help in the wreckage afterwards. We remember all of those who did not make it home on the evening of September 11, 2001. 

As we remember what 9/11 was and how it affected all of us, may we also take stock today of what we have and be grateful for it. While we remember those who helped strangers and ran into burning buildings, might we also help others in some small way. What better way to remember those who gave everything than by giving back in our own community?

So, today and all week, we encourage everyone to practice Sharing Smiles. Buy someone’s coffee while in line at the drive-through. Help someone cross the street. Carry someone’s groceries. More than anything else today, let’s practice kindness and love. 

After all, isn't that what gets us though? Kindness, Love and Sharing Smiles. 

Join us for our 7th Annual Sharing Smiles Event!

This Saturday, March 25th, marks our 7th annual Sharing Smiles Event! This is a day where our entire staff volunteers and provides free dental care to community members in need and without means. Registration will begin at 7:00 a.m. and we will see patients on a first come, first serve basis from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Treatment will be determined on an individual basis by the provider but exams, cleanings, fillings and extractions will be offered. 

We are also taking both cash and canned good donations for the Hartford Food Pantry. Community members can drop off their Food Pantry donations any time this week during normal business hours or anytime on Saturday. It's just one way you can be a part of our Sharing Smiles mission!

We hope to see you this Saturday as we host this wonderful event again!
