Your Gift of Time-Volunteering
Time is one of the most valuable gifts that a person possesses. When used without thought, it can be wasted; but when used with a sincere definition, it can change the world. TeamSmile is an organization that relies heavily on people giving of their time. When a person chooses to give their time to a TeamSmile program, they have made the choice to make a difference in the lives of children in our communities. They have opened their hearts, given their talents and most importantly given a gift that can change a child’s life for years to come.
Because Of Our Volunteers
In 2019, TeamSmile conducted 33 programs, served 7,126 children and provided $2.8 million worth of free dental care and oral health education.
On average, we provided $85,407 worth of free dental care and oral health education per program, averaging $424 per child.
To show our appreciation for those who take their valuable time and donate it to our cause, we’ve teamed up with TiScrubs to provide a complementary set of medical scrubs to each dentist and and a t-shirt to mark the volunteer year for all other volunteers. If you are not a dentist and would like a set of custom scrubs please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this.
I truly enjoy working with TeamSmile because it is a great way to give directly back to the children in the Fresno community. Seeing the children get excited about going to the dentist in a fun environment while also being able to play sports with their favorite Bulldog players is truly a joy. I am grateful that Fresno State and I get to work with TeamSmile. Proud fact…TeamSmile has been around for 14 years and we have hosted a TeamSmile program in the Fresno community every year.
