Smiles For Life 2019!

Great Hill Dental Chelmsford is once again making smiles brighter for Smiles For Life 2019!

Who knew that getting whiter teeth could brighten the lives of thousands of children in the U.S. and around the world!? Patients visiting the dentists at Great Hill Dental can smile a little brighter knowing they are also bringing a smile to the face of a child in need. The 21st annual Smiles For Life campaign began this month and runs through the end of June, which means dental patients can brighten a child’s future by visiting one of Great Hill’s offices in Boston, Somerville, Braintree, Peabody, and Chelmsford.  By selecting one of the convenient Great Hill dentists in your area you can both whiten your teeth and give to this wonderful children’s charity. Your donation is the discounted amount you pay for the whitening.

The foundation uses donations from the community to help fund worthy children’s charities and humanitarian work, both locally and around the world.

Local Charitable Connection

Great Hill Dental has each of their five offices partnering with local charities that benefit children and families directly tied to the greater Boston area. 50% of all donated proceeds goes to the Smiles for Life National charity, the remaining 50% are donated to these local-based charities:

  • Great Hill Dental Chelmsford has partnered with Catie’s Closet. Catie’s Closet improves school attendance and removes social stigma by providing an in-school resource of clothing and basic necessities to students living below the poverty line.
  • Great Hill Dental Peabody has partnered with The Boston Children’s Hospital. Boston Children’s Hospital is a 404-bed comprehensive center for pediatric health care, offering a complete range of health care services for children from birth through 21 years of age.
  • Great Hill Dental Braintree has partnered with the Marge Crispin Center, a non-profit operated by Braintree Holiday/Friends, Inc. that supports residents of Braintree in need of food and emergency aid, as well as adult day care services to seniors, holiday food and adopt-a-family programs.
  • Great Hill Dental Boston has partnered with Home for Little Wanderers. They serve the community with individual, group and family therapy, child and family skills development, help with adoption and foster care, provide social, vocational and daily living supports, and more.
  • Great Hill Dental Somerville has partnered with The Somerville Homeless Coalition. The mission of the Somerville Homeless Coalition is to provide homeless and near homeless individuals and families with supportive services and affordable housing solutions.

Great Hill Dental Teeth Whitening Special – Lift Up Kids Today

GreatHillDentalChelmsford - Teeth Whitening Special for Kids

January 7, 2015

Welcome to our Great Hill Dental Chelmsford Office Blog!

At Chelmsford we began the New Year with a healthy attitude. All staff seemed to be indulging in a healthier eating plan and saying no to any and all sweets that are brought in to temp them – what will power. It has become contagious to many of us. Good luck in your individual goals.

We also celebrated a few Birthday’s one for Maddie Gregoire & Dr. Clifford Walters, funny, no one wants to share how old they are and from what we understand the years are going backwards!! Don’t you just love those Birthdays!

January presented some great opportunities for getting to know some of our local businesses. Our Chelmsford site was invited to attend a local health fair with one of our employer groups. The health fair was a lot of fun and also gave us a chance to meet some wonderful people.

Chelmsford nominated their first Employee of the Month: Tricia Boeira. Tricia was nominated by her staff for always going above and beyond to help out and also because of her warm and caring personality. Congratulations Tricia from your Great Hill Dental Teams.

In January our Chelmsford site obtained 28 new patients for the month of January. We want to thank all of our patients for choosing us and we take great pride in being able to provide both new and long- time patients with your dental needs. Thank you for your referrals!!

Upcoming marketing events for Chelmsford:

* For the month of February we will be participating in a Mardi Gras Madness raffle. Many of the local businesses have donated baskets to be raffled off along with Great Hill Dental. The basket includes a Sonicare toothbrush and prefab whitening kit (check out the picture for ideas). The basket is impressive and hopefully the winner will be delighted with their new smile! Raffle drawing will take place early March.

* In early March, Dr. Van will be visiting a local School in Chelmsford where he will help educate children on good hygiene and provide young students a demonstration on obtaining overall good dental care to help prevent decay.
