At All About Braces and Colorado Orthodontics, we are passionate about the communities we live and work in. As noted on our homepage, we are proud to be partnered with our public schools in Denver, Greenwood Village, Englewood, Aurora, Lakewood, Arvada and Thornton to offer programs through which we can provide financial support to the schools. In addition to these efforts, we have also been thrilled to donate thousands of take-home folders to dozens of local public schools. In total, we have donated HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to local schools over the past 5 years!
We are also thrilled to be working with the Colorado Orthodontic Foundation and Smiles Change Lives to help provide orthodontic care to underprivileged kids in our community. In addition to providing pro-bono orthodontics through these charities, we are also active participants with Give Kids A Smile, a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing free braces and other orthodontic treatments to those in need. We work with the Colorado Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped to provide free services and have worked with local organizations to provide pro bono services to battered women in our community.
Throughout the year, our doctors frequently volunteer their time to provide free orthodontic and dental screenings throughout the community. We also work with local athletic directors to provide free mouthguards to student athletes that we custom-fit in our offices.
Throughout the year we sponsor Toys for Tots drives as well as candy drives in which we donate to the children’s hospital and Ronald McDonald House. During the Thanksgiving season, we donate turkeys to needy families. We are also proud supporters of Ekar Farms.
For years we have donated equipment and supplies to Project Cure, a local nonprofit focused on collecting donated medicial and dental supplies and equipment and delivering this equipment to clinics in developing countries throughout the world.
We are sponsors of the Peanut Butter Plan, a grass-roots, Denver-based charity that works to feed the homeless. In 2017, we initiated our sponsorship of the Miss Black Colorado pageant to help support and empower African-American Women in our community. We are also proud sponsors of the Colorado Agency for Jewish Education and major sponsors of the Denver Jewish Film Festival.
In 2018 we are excited to be launching a new post-secondary scholarship fund as well as a college test-prep program for our patients and communities.
