Our Smiles For Life Campaign Helps Children’s Charities

MARCH THRU JUNE our practice is raising donations for children’s charities through the Smiles For Life program. We’re honored and excited to participate in such a worthy cause! 100% of the donations we raise go to the Smiles For Life Foundation to benefit children in need, with 50% benefiting a local charity of our choice—helping kids in OUR community.
We have selected The Special Olympics of Maryland to receive 50 percent of the funds they will raise during this year's campaign. This is the 10th consecutive year that our practice has participated in this event. Since joining the campaign, Dr. Fenlon and Howard County Family Dentistry have raised over $20,000. This year, the practice hopes to raise $5,000.

Here’s How Smiles For Life Works:
  1. You schedule an appointment to get your teeth professionally whitened between March 1 and June 30.
  2. Ultradent donates the whitening materials to our practice.
  3. Our practice donates our time to professionally whiten your teeth.
  4. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation, benefiting children’s charities locally and around the world.

If you’d like to join us in this fantastic campaign, give us a call!


Thanks For Helping Us Support This Great Cause!

Spring Cleaning For Your Smile (Smiles For Life)

Whiter Teeth at Howard County Family DentistryWITH WHITE CLOTHES, SOMETIMES IT TAKES a little bleach and a little sunlight to bring them back to their beautiful brightness! The same goes for your smile!

Your teeth may not feel the same as a cotton t-shirt feels, but they ARE porous, and they absorb the food colors that you eat each day.

Daily Living Can Dull Your Smile
Drinks like coffee, red wine, and dark fruit juices tint your smile. Berries, brightly colored candy, even soy sauce and curries will stain teeth too. Pigmentation from things we consume every day gradually build up and cause us to have dull, stained teeth.

Is It Time For A Spring Cleaning?
The problem with these set-in stains is that they need more than elbow grease. Brushing and cleaning your teeth, however thorough a job you do, won’t bring back that beautiful white you used to have. And while over-the-counter tooth whiteners can help, the best way to get a dazzling, bright smile in a safe and healthy way is to come see a dentist.

If you have any questions about keeping your teeth looking clean and white, ask us! We’ll help you decide on a solution to get your whitest, healthiest teeth.

Your Gorgeous White Smile Also Helps Children In Need
Your timing is perfect, because we’re doing our Smiles For Life Campaign! When you get your smile whitened you also help children locally and around the world.

Here’s How It Works:

Help More Kids By Helping Us Spread The Word!
Whether you choose to have your own smile whitened or not, you can make a HUGE difference for seriously ill and under served children around the world by simply sharing this opportunity on your trusted social networks such as Facebook!

Thanks for helping us make a difference in children’s lives!
