$10,000 Smile Giveaway
We are happy to announce the winner of our 10K Smile Makeover is Tara! Back at the beginning of the year, we asked for you to nominate someone who you felt deserved a smile makeover and Tara’s compelling story prompted us to crown her as our winner and start her smile makeover. Tara is an amazing woman who not only beat cancer but is using it to fuel her passion to help others. She is currently in medical school to become a doctor to help others fight hard in their battle with cancer. You can watch the beginning of Tara’s story and follow along with her smile makeover on our Instagram @OC_Healthy_Smiles.[/columns]

Smiles for Costa Mesa 2019
On March 15th, 2019 our dental team provided FREE dentistry to 15 members of the local community making it our most successful free dentistry day to date!
If you are interested in attending one of our free dentistry days, follow our social media and bookmark this page for updates! We look forward to serving you and your friends in the future.
2nd Annual Smiles for Veterans
Unfortunately, most Veterans don’t qualify for VA Dental care, so OC Healthy Smiles provided free dentistry to local Veterans on November 16th, 2018. At this event, 14 veterans received dental care, and many of whom have not been to the dentist in over 10 years. It was an honor to serve this underserved community and we are excited to do this again next year!
Thanks to all of you, we were able to drop off 50 jars of PB&J to Project Hope Alliances food bank! They will be distributing these jars to local families in need during the holiday season.
Why PB&J? A PB&J sandwich is a good source of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and B vitamins!
Smiles for Costa Mesa 2018
On March 15th, 2018 the OC Healthy Smiles staff provided free services for the local community. Over $5,000 worth of treatment was donated to the attendees who normally would not have access to dental care.
Part of the OC Healthy Smiles mission is to improve the community lives through quality care, compassion, and education.
Thank you to Project Hope Alliance for partnering with us for this event to help us reach more of the local community!
1st Annual Smiles For Veterans
Over $2,500 in dentistry was donated to U.S Veterans and armed service members in November of 2017 at out 1st Annual Smiles for Veterans. In honor of Veterans Day, OC Healthy Smiles provided free dentistry for this underserved community. Dr. Mark Nguyen did his residency training at the Department of Veterans Affairs and saw firsthand how difficult it is for veterans to access dental care.
From all of us here at OC Healthy Smiles, we would like to thank all service members and veterans for their service. We look forward to serving more veterans next year when we host this event again.
Giving Back To Our Community One Patient At A Time
Giving back to the Orange County community is one of our core beliefs at OC Healthy Smiles. That is why we have partnered with Dentistry from the Heart and Project Hope Alliance to provide free dental care to those in need. Our goal is to help make the Orange County area a better place to live.
Here is a video of one our Dentistry from the Heart patients, Brett, who bravely served our country in the Marines. Helping him was such an amazing experience.
Providing Dental Care For Local Children
Below are pictures of the OC Healthy Smiles team providing free dental care to homeless children through the Project Hope Alliance. There are more than 26,000 homeless children attending Orange County Schools. We were happy to improve the smiles of many of these children.
