Hunt Valley Dental – Giving Back
Hunt Valley Dental supports our community and a number of causes dear to our hearts.
Handicapped Donated Dental Services
Dr. Thomas Rhodes has also participated with the Maryland Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped Donated Dental Services giving over $15,000 in free care to those in need, last year.
Smiles for Hope
In 2012, Dr. Thomas Rhodes also went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic for 10 days with the Smiles for Hope. He plans on going again soon.
The Smiles for Life Foundation help seriously ill disabled and underprivileged children through approved children’s charities, in addition to sponsoring dental humanitarian trips that helped tens of thousands of children among the poorest of the poor. Here’s how it works. March through June Ultradent donates materials, your dentist donates his or her time, your smile is professionally whitened and 100% of your contribution goes directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation which supports children’s charities both locally and around the world. From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of all the children, thanks for your support.
Smiles for Life
Help improve a child’s life by having your teeth whitened. Sound easy? That’s because it is. The annual Smiles For Life Campaign begins March 1, which means dental patients nationwide can brighten a child’s future just by visiting local Crown Council dentist Dr. Tom Rhodes at Hunt Valley Dental. The campaign runs from March 1 until June 30, and 100% of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures performed at Hunt Valley Dental are contributed directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation. The charity Dr. Rhodes has chosen to support is the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Dr. Rhodes has participated in the Smiles of Life Campaign since 2002.
Ride for Kids
Ride for Kids is the longest-running, most successful motorcycle charity event in the nation. Since 1984, motorcyclists have raised funds to help children with brain tumors, which are the top cause of cancer death in children.
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation was created in 1991 by the founders of Ride for Kids, and is now the leading nonprofit funding research into childhood brain tumors. Our events also fund free educational resources, college scholarships for brain tumor survivors and emergency financial aid for families.
Dr. Rhodes is honored to be part of the Steering Committee for the Baltimore-Washington ride.
