Each year, for four months, a select group of dentists across North America present everyone with a unique opportunity to have their teeth professional whitened while donating all of the proceeds to children’s charities. During this limited period of time, these dentists offer professional tooth whitening to their patients for less than the normal cost.
Dr. Peter McAllister of Topsfield, once again participated in the amazing Smiles for Life charity program. One hundred percent of proceeds go to charity, with half going to The Smiles For Life Foundation, benefiting National Children’s charities such as Garth Brooks’ Teammates for Kids, and the remaining half going to Windrush Farm, a local nonprofit horse farm in Boxford and North Andover specializing in teaching physically, emotionally, and learning disabled children and adults to ride and work with horses.
The Smiles for Life Foundation has raised many millions of dollars since it was organized in 1998. The funds have benefited over 500 children’s charities. In addition, Dr. McAllister has donated tents of thousands of dollars through Smiles For Life to local charities. He is proud to have chosen Windrush Farm as the recipient for 2014 Smiles For Life Donations.
“Smiles for Life is a win-win situation,” explains Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council and one of the campaign’s founders. “Patients have a brighter smile, our member dentists are able to contribute to their community and—best of all—children who really need our help have a reason to smile.”
We’re so thankful and appreciative of Dr. McAllister’s generosity,” said Amanda Hogan, executive director of Windrush Farm. “It is because of passionate people like Dr. McAllister that Windrush Farm is able to offer such unique programming to more than the 1,700 kids, adults and veterans annually.”
