This spring and summer, Tim Modic and his team at Academy Dental Care in Mechanicsville provided teeth whitening services to patients at a reduced price and donated 100 percent of the proceeds to children who face disabilities, serious illness, lack of medical care or decreased educational opportunities as part of the Crown Council’s annual Smiles for Life campaign.

“This year’s effort was a great success, and we want to thank everyone in the community who participated by purchasing whitening services from us during the campaign. We would also like to thank those who participated in our poker run, closest to the pin contest, and who donated money for the charity motorcycle ride,” Modic said in a statement. “We also appreciate Philips Oral Healthcare’s donation of all teeth-whitening materials.”

Modic raised more than $15,000 during the four-month campaign.

Half of the funds were contributed to the therapeutic riding program run by the Greenwell Foundation in Hollywood. The other half went to 500 various Crown Council-approved children’s charities worldwide that have an emphasis on improving health, education and inner-city programs.
