SOUTH JORDAN, Utah—Ultradent Products has partnered with Crown Council in its effort to raise money for children’s charities. Between March 1 and August 1, 2019, more than $1.8 million was raised through Smiles for Life, the charitable arm of the Crown Council. Since 1998, the campaign has raised almost $44 million benefitting more than a thousand children’s charities in North America.
“I have personally participated in two humanitarian trips with Crown Council and have observed firsthand their members’ commitment and hard work in this effort,” said Karen Phillips, vice president of sales and marketing at Ultradent.
Crown Council is an alliance of dental teams passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their communities through charitable work. Dentists who participate in Smiles for Life donate their time to offer professional tooth whitening to patients at a discounted price. The patients then make their payments directly to Smiles for Life instead of the dental practice. One-hundred percent of their payment goes to children’s charities—half is earmarked for a charity of the dentist’s choice and half goes to Smiles for Life, who gives to charities such as Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, Feed the Children, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, and many more.
