Reaching a Milestone: Project Smile Makes Local Charities and Patients Smile
Date:5/8/2008

ATLANTA, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Project Smile, a community outreach program that is the first of its kind in the dental community, has reached a major milestone in charitable giving. The three-year-old donation program, developed and sponsored by local orthodontist Dr. Robert Pickron, owner/founder of Pickron Orthodontic Care, has now raised $150,000 for Georgia charities.

Project Smile turns the frustration and expense of a child's lost or broken retainer into a rewarding experience. Instead of paying Pickron Orthodontic Care for the cost of retainer repair or replacement, the patient writes a check to support one of six local charitable organizations in the Project Smile program. Pickron Orthodontic Care matches all contributions dollar-for-dollar and replaces the patient's retainer.

"Our patients find that losing a retainer can actually turn into a rewarding experience," said Dr. Pickron. "We are very pleased that we can reach out to the community with this program that offers us and our patients an opportunity to give back."

Current recipients of Project Smile funds are the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, Prevent Child Abuse - Georgia, Project Open Hand, Ben Massell Dental Clinic, Rainbow Village and VolleyFest. The selected charities receive funds critical to their missions of providing services to children and families and those suffering from illness.
