Smiles for Everyone Foundation

Smiles for Everyone Foundation

Recently, WGB was able to work with Smiles for Everyone Foundation and received this note: "Hi Nicole and Women Giving Back Team, I wanted to follow up and thank you for your partnership and referring individuals in need to our free dental clinic this past Saturday. We had a wonderful event - our volunteers were able to serve over 40 patients and provide over $30,000 in donated dentistry!

Our Foundation plans to host a free dental clinic in your area again next year and we hope we can partner with your organization again to refer individuals in need to receive free dental care.

Thank you again for helping deliver Smiles to the Herndon, Virginia community!"
