Ace & TJ's Grin Kids!

Ace and TJ’s Grin Kids. Grin Kids was formed to provide the opportunity for children with life-threatening illness to go to Disney World with their families. It is a wonderful opportunity that many of these children would not otherwise have.

Love Denver

We thoroughly enjoyed completing dental screenings at the Love Denver event held at East Lincoln High School! “Love Denver is a multi-church sponsored, back to school themed, community medical clinic with a mission to “meet the spiritual and physical needs of the needy through the Gospel and Name of Jesus.”’

NC Baptist Dental Van

We also had a lot of fun working on the NC Baptist Dental Van at Real Life Church in Lucia. We were able to see quite of few people in need for dental work along with other members of the dental community in Denver and surrounding areas. We had a lot of fun and hope to make this a tradition.

We volunteered in Charlotte on the Ada Jenkins Dental Bus at the Salvation Army Center for Hope Shelter. It was a great way to again help those that would otherwise not be able to get the dental care they deserve.
