Share a Smile

SHARE A SMILE

We provide free comprehensive dental care for the homeless and poor of Utah County from locations in Provo and American Fork.  Patients are required to give community service for each dental visit they receive, giving back to the community for services rendered in their behalf. We have two fully supplied permanent clinics, supported by Henry Schein Practice Solutions. Volunteers come as often as their schedules will permit. We would love to have time donated by dentists, hygienists, and assistants. This is also a great place for retired dentists to continue to share their talents with the community.

Share a Smile has provided free dental services to the Utah County homeless and poor for over 15 years, and currently sees up to 600 new patients every year.  We serve patient referrals from the Food and Care Coalition, Center for Women and Children in Crisis, Vocational Rehabilitation, Kids on the Move, Ability First, Wasatch Mental Health, Turning Point, Utah County Substance Abuse, Foothills Treatment, House of Hope, Chainbreakers, Alpine Recovery, and others.  Our local partnerships for volunteer service include Utah Valley University Dental Hygiene program, Brigham Young University pre-dental, Utah Valley University pre-dental, and Roseman Dental School.

Volunteer dentists, hygienists, and assistants are always needed. For more information on how you can become involved, contact:  Heather Hogue, heather@shareasmile.net, 801-477-6193
