Community Involvement

Edwards Family Dental Staff

What SMILE BIG means to us . . .

Smiling Big for Others through Community Involvement

At Edwards Family Dental, we believe that volunteerism is the heart and soul of our commitment to this community. As a team, we collect candy to send overseas to our troops, sponsor races to benefit those in need, save dogs, and treat underprivileged children. Each and every staff member donates their time and talents to many programs to help build a healthier, better world.

The centerpiece of our community involvement is KidsSmiles Pediatric Clinic, which provides dental treatment and education for underprivileged children. A founding member of this organization, Dr. Edwards and other Columbus-area dentists are working to improve the lives of our children throughout the Central Ohio area.

We make free custom mouth guards for the sports teams in our community throughout the year. We look forward to meeting the kids and cheering them through their season!

Through our Treats for Treasure program, we get the kids of our community involved by asking them to donate unopened Halloween candy.  We ship hundreds of pounds of candy to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan each year.

Every February for Dental Health Month, we visit our community preschools to teach kids about the importance of dental health. We discuss the importance of brushing using fun activities and talk to them about what will happen at their dental visits. We also teach them about food choices to keep their smiles healthy!

And, our Smile Makeover winner is already experiencing a happier, more confident life during her treatment process.
