All of us here at Delaware Smile Center believe in the importance of giving back. That is why we have partnered with Warriors Helping Warriors (WHW), a program established in 2013 by the Veterans Resiliency Center that helps connect U.S. military veterans with various resources, including medical care, housing, and employment. As WHW partners, our skilled providers have completed numerous veterans’ dental treatments completely free of charge. A great smile and a healthy mouth can be truly life-changing, and we are proud to be able to support those who have given so much for our country.
In addition to our work with WHW, we are also committed to being active and involved in our local community. Members of our staff have attended blood drives, marched to raise money for breast cancer research, and volunteered to provide vital dental education for children. We also host frequent donation drives benefiting local charities such as the SPCA, homeless shelters, food banks, and more. We are a family-owned and oriented business, and we strive to treat everyone we come into contact with like a part of our family. That is why we work to provide the best possible care for our patients, our staff, and our beautiful community.
