We are proud to announce that in March of this year the readers of The Columbian voted Smiles Dental “The Best Dentist for 2011” beneath the “Looking Good” category of the annual Best of Clark County edition!
The entire Smiles Dental team was honored and truly grateful to be recognized for the third year in a row, after also being nominated for Best Dentist in the 2009 and 2010 Best of Clark County editions.
The friendly staff at Smiles Dental has a consistent track record of community service, leading with one of their biggest days of the year, “Doctor With a Heart.” This year Smiles Dental offices donated more than $50,000 of free dental care while serving more than 120 patients in the surrounding communities, opening their offices to anyone in need of dental care.
Ann Lucas, the Operations Manager at Smiles Dental, said, “Our entire staff volunteers their time for the day, providing each and every patient the ultimate in service through superior performance in dentistry, so we can have a positive impact in our patients’ lives and in our communities.”
The staff at Smiles Dental is fond of serving the surrounding communities throughout the year with a variety of events, such as our Smiles Dental Food Drive, where patients and employees bring non-perishable items to the local food bank to help families in need from the community. Smiles Dental has also held a coat drive for local adults and children.
The Ridgefield Fun Run is attended by staff members from all Smiles Dental offices every year in December. This event contributes to the “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” Food Bank Program, as well as the Homeless Shelter.
And we’re happy to report that our very own Smiles Dental had the largest team last year at the Harvest Classic Run. Indeed, each year Smiles Dental has the distinct pleasure of being involved in the Christmas and Fourth of July parades to hand out toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, lip balm, and of course, a little candy.
We should mention that some Smiles Dental team members participate in the Sand and Misery Challenge, which benefits the American Liver Foundation. And Smiles Dental offices are also invited to attend many health fair events in both Clark and Cowlitz counties.
In short, Smiles Dental is simply proud to just be a large part of our community, and we are humbled and thankful for the honor of being named “The Best Dentist” for the third year in a row!
