Mechanicsville, MD –  Each year from March 1st  until June 30th, a select group of dentists across North America give everyone a unique opportunity to have their teeth professionally whitened with 100% of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures contributed directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation and a children’s charity of their choice. This foundation helps fund worthy children’s charities and humanitarian work, both locally and around the world. As an additional incentive, each patient enjoys their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. Patients love the unique opportunity to improve the lives of children in need while also enhancing their own smile.

Drs. Gina and Kara McCray and the St. Mary’s Dental team once again participated in the amazing Smiles For Life charity program.  This year they raised $10,411 for the Smiles For Life Foundation, with half going to the local chapter of Hunter’s Heroes.  Hunter’s Heroes mission is to raise funds for brain tumor research and advances in treatment, increase childhood cancer awareness, and provide uplifting gifts and monetary contributions to families with a child diagnosed with cancer.

Drs. Gina and Kara McCray would like to thank everyone in Southern Maryland who participated with the Smiles for Life 2015 whitening campaign.  Look on the St. Mary’s Dental webpage at for details on the 2016 campaign which begins March 1, 2016.
