Mechanicsville, MD – March 11, 2020 – Who knew that getting whiter teeth could brighten the lives of thousands of economically-disadvantaged children in the U.S. and around the world! This year St. Mary’s Dental is teaming up with the Crown Council for its annual Smiles For Life Campaign. The Crown Council, a prestigious alliance of leading-edge dentists across the globe who are strongly committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer, and serving their communities through charitable work, will run the innovative and impactful effort from March 1 until June 30th this year. The campaign creates an amazing opportunity for a visit to the dentist to help make a difference in the lives of needy youth, locally and across the globe.

To support this deserving cause, one just schedules a teeth-whitening treatment at a participating a Crown Council dentist office nationwide. The member dentist donates his or her time and the service is even provided at a steeply-discounted rate, thanks to 100 percent of the whitening materials being generously donated by longstanding strategic partner Ultradent Products, Inc. All of the money used to pay for the service goes to children’s charities and humanitarian work, both locally and around the world.

“It’s a unique opportunity to improve the lives of disadvantaged children, while also enhancing your own smile,” asserts Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council. “It’s just a win-win situation all around. This is only possible thanks to the passion and dedication of our volunteer dentists and the wide range of Opalescence whitening products that Ultradent provides each year. The Ultradent team has worked really hard to earn its reputation as the nation’s premier ‘tooth whitening company.’ Donations may also be made directly to the campaign by going to

The rest goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation, which supports national and international oral health and other programs benefiting economically-disadvantaged children across the world, including in the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Nepal and Guatemala.
