Southern Smiles is a supporter of the Child Advocacy Center’s Serve it up with Love tennis benefit, United Methodist Inner City Mission, Boys and Girls Club of Mobile, Team Focus, the Mobile Touchdown Club, and the Senior Bowl. We also sponsor or support McGill Toolen Sports, St. Paul’s Sports, Court-Appointed Special Advisors, and multiple little league sports teams.
Our team also participates in volunteer days to help students at the following schools: Mary B. Austin Elementary School, Taylor-White Elementary School, O’Rourke Elementary School, Hutchens Elementary School, Dawes Intermediate School, and Causey Middle School. We have provided hygiene education as well as exams to ensure citizens of Mobile County have healthy teeth and no child has to go to school with a toothache.
Our staff selects a special patient each year that we call our “Thanksgiving” patient. We try to change that patient’s life by giving them their smile back at no cost to the them. Our staff takes pride in selecting this patient to bless and have found that caring for them is also a wonderful blessing to us.
Additionally, we are supporters of our local law enforcement and treat them as part of our Southern Smiles family. We also donate time to Donated Dental Services, a group that aligns the downtrodden with an office and allows the patient to receive care at no out-of-pocket cost.
Finally, we open our office to McKemie Place, a local women’s shelter, to provide dental treatment services and help get them back on their feet with a smile.
