We are a Grand Rapids dentist office with a lot of heart. Each year, we dedicate time and energy to help our troops overseas and those in need. Giving back to our community is important to our mission as a family dental practice.
How We Give Back
Smiles from the Heart
We understand that not everyone is able to afford quality dental care, which is why we donate our dental services once every year. Patients are able to choose a free dental cleaning, filling, or tooth extraction. The event is open to the public and services are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Our dentists, hygienists, assistants, and front office staff all pitch in to make the event a success for those who are less fortunate.
Our last FREE Dental Day was held on May 3rd and it was a huge success! We were able to donate $23,500 in free dentistry to 72 community members in need.
In the last 4 years, over $100,000 in dentistry has been donated to 300 Grand Rapids residents! Our next event will be held on Friday, May 20, 2022. If you are in desperate need of dental care we would love to lend a hand at next year’s event!
Halloween Candy Buyback
Kids! Sell your unwanted Halloween Candy to our office and support our troops.
At Contemporary Family Dental we host a Halloween Candy BuyBack Program
for the community. The event is scheduled every year on November 1st from 3:00-5:00 p.m. How it works:
Kids can bring in any extra unwanted Halloween Candy and we will buy it back from them for $1.00 per lb (up to 5 lbs.). We then ship all the candy to an organization called Operation Gratitude
, which then ships it to our troops overseas. Kids are always welcome to write notes or draw pictures for our troops, which we send along with the candy.
To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Rapids dentists, call Contemporary Family Dental at (616) 209-3969.
