Thank you all for making our 6th Annual Give Kids A Smile event a great success. Our doctors, hygienists and assistants and front office team worked hard and helped many kids from Buford and surrounding areas, aged 2-12 years providing free dental care including X-Rays, Dental Exam, Dental Cleaning, Dental Sealants. We handed Free toothbrushes and toothpastes.
We get so much happiness in serving the community and giving back every year by this great event. We are Give Kids A Smile supporter since 2018. This is a nationwide event launched in 2013 started by American Dental Association. The vision for this event is to ensure access to quality oral healthcare for all children. To date, over 7 million underserved children have received free oral health services through this program.
Lake Lanier Smiles is proud to be an official Toys For Tots Collection Site again this year. We have been doing this great event since 5 years. We collect new and unwrapped toys for kids aged 2-14. It is so satisfying to donate a toy to kids who are less fortunate to celebrate Christmas. This year we collected a lot of toys and are filled the whole large box. Toys For Tots is a program run by the US Marine Corps Reserve which do an awesome job in collecting the toys and distributing them. We appreciate those volunteers who dropped us the boxes and also picked up the collected toys at out Buford Dental Office.
Thanks for all the donations that helped to make this Christmas to remember and a dream come true for kids in Buford and Gwinnett County who might otherwise be forgotten.
Give Kids a Smile 2021 was a great success despite COVID-19 pandemic. We are so honored to help the GWINNETT AND HALL COUNTY and BUFORD kids.

This month Lake Lanier Smiles was a drop off location for Toys for Tots. Our community was so generous this month and we ended up donating over 50 toys! Some of the toys we received were left outside one early morning and we had no idea who to thank. Others were donated by our shopping center neighbors and of course our lovely patients. Shout out to all of our patients and people of Buford who contributed to this amazing cause.
This fall Lake Lanier Smiles staff and patients are giving the opportunity to compose a letter to War Veterans, First Responders, EMS Employees, Deployed Troops, Wounded Warriors and more. We believe that it is important to acknowledge those who cannot be with us due to giving their time, energy and lives to keep us safe! As a token of our appreciation we will be sending out two boxes of handwritten letters to California and they will be distributed throughout the country and overseas through a company called Operation Gratitude. Each letter will be included in a Care Package and while this initiative started in September we are pleased to announce that this will be offered year round! Not only can patients compose letters in office but letters can be hand written and mailed into our office as well. We will now be considered a small distribution center for Operation Gratitude! We have already started to receive letters from as far out as West Virginia and New Hyde Park, NY!!”
