Meet a Few of our Grant Recipients
Healthy Smiles $30,000
More than one-third of Spartanburg County elementary and middle school students need immediate dental care or have conditions that will result in future dental problems if left unchecked. Healthy Smiles of Spartanburg seeks to improve this unfortunate situation. Healthy Smiles dentists see children with decay and infections that could spread throughout the body and which could require oral surgery. This grant allows the organization to continue to serve the oral health needs of children in our community.
