Starts With A Smile Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) certified not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing oral disease in vulnerable and underserved populations. Oral health is an integral part of our overall health. Indeed, current research shows that improper dental practices can lead to an array of conditions spanning from tooth loss and gum disease to serious cardiovascular conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, and even cancer. Starts With A Smile believes that oral health promotion and disease prevention are essential to any strategies aimed to improving access to care.
In order to promote our mission, we have successfully organized a number of donation drives within the Middlesex community. We are currently expanding our outreach efforts to nearby counties, New York, and New Jersey. With our growth, we are thrilled to bring more drives, and therefore more access to care, to an ever-growing number of people.
We continue to develop relationships with local dentists and dental offices, in order to create a strong network among those who dedicate their efforts for a common cause. We also look to combine our efforts with other non-profits to maximize our impact.
Our vision is to provide as many individuals with the basic dental hygiene needs as possible, and with your support we can do just that, start by giving a smile!
