Bright Now!® Dental Hosts Free Dental Day in Herndon, VA
Date:11/7/2018

Bright Now!® Dental partnered with the Smiles for Everyone Foundation to open its Herndon, VA office to provide free dental services for underinsured, low-income individuals on November 3.

Volunteers from Smile Brands Inc.'s affiliated offices located around Northern Virginia and Maryland arrived early Saturday morning ready to give back and make a difference. The team, comprised of seven doctors and nearly 30 support staff, worked together to deliver pro bono care to underserved patients from their local community. Services included checkups, cleanings, oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatments, fillings, extractions, and more. Volunteer dentists included Dr. Mazin Alayssami, Dr. Aws Altameemi, Dr. Karim Chaddad, Dr. Jose Lugo, Dr. Mariam Naeem, Dr. Jung Park, and Dr. Hima Bindu Reddy.

Patients served were referred to the Day of Giving event by local nonprofit organizations. These partners included Good Shepard Alliance, a homeless shelter and support service organization; Cornerstones food pantry; Fellowship Square, which provides housing support; and The Arc of Northern Virginia, a special needs assistance organization. Many of those referred had not received dental care in years, resulting in feelings of uneasiness. Patient Alyson M., who hadn’t been to the dentist in over 15 years, explained, “I was so nervous because of the length of time since my last visit. The staff put me at complete ease and comfort. Thank you for a wonderful event!”

Overall, the Herndon team delivered over $30,000 in donated dentistry.

The next Day of Giving that the Foundation will be hosting will be at Bight Now! Dental in Oakland, CA on Saturday, November 10. Please visit http://www.smilesforeveryone.org for more information.
