Smile Makeover Contest to reward free dentistry to charitable individual

Is it more important to have a good smile, or to make someone else smile?

Scottsdale family dentistry office Dental Works, led husband-and-wife dentists Dr. Mary Ann Work and Dr. Terry Work, believe all smiles make a community stronger.

Dental Works is seeking nominations for its inaugural 2015 Smile Makeover contest of individuals who have put their family members or the community before their own personal oral health.

The makeover will restore the winner to oral health, function, and aesthetics at no cost.

Specific needs of the individual will vary, but may include dentures, root canals, crown and bridge and/or implants.  All procedures will be done at the Dental Works office at no charge to the patient.

The timeframe of the plan will depend on the procedures needed and the availability of the individual for appointments.

“Dental Works been part of some pretty amazing transformations over the years so we wanted to host a Smile Makeover contest so that we can reward a special person in our community,” said Dr. Mary Ann Work of Dental Works.

“I’m not sure who will have the bigger smile in the end, the winner or our staff!”
