I know how blessed I am to do work that I thoroughly enjoy. We love to bless others and make a powerful, positive impact on the community. We support programs that do the same both in the dental industry and our community at large. Giving is part of who we are. We love to do it, and we love to make a difference in people’s lives.

The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
The Salvation Army has been helping Arizonans overcome poverty, addiction and economic hardships through a range of social services for more than 125 years. By providing food for the hungry, clothing and shelter for the homeless, rent and utilities assistance, disaster and heat relief, senior activity and outreach, adult rehabilitation, and opportunities for underprivileged children, The Salvation Army is doing the most good at more than 50 centers of operation across the state. Approximately 82 cents of every dollar donated to The Salvation Army are used to support its life-transforming social services.

After nearly 8 years of steady growth in helping formerly incarcerated people receive the restorative dental work they needed to start a new life, Smiles Beyond the Bars expanded its mission and changed its name to Smiles and Beyond to serve survivors of domestic violence, as well as formerly imprisoned men and women. In partnership with the finest professionals in the dental community, Smiles extends comprehensive dental services to carefully vetted formerly incarcerated and domestic violence survivors who have been out of prison or their violent relationship for at least one year and are dedicated to turning their lives around. Smiles gives its recipients not just a healthy, restored smile, but a chance to help themselves build a new life with hope and renewed confidence. Smiles is dependent on collaboration with other Phoenix nonprofits for recipient referrals, including Family Promise, UMOM, Maggie’s Place, Homeward Bound, Sojourner Center, and Phoenix Rescue Mission. These mutually beneficial partnerships allow Smiles the opportunity to provide the final puzzle piece in the transformation and healing process for these men and women.
Along Side Ministries is a Discipleship Ministry with a mission to help the incarcerated, Christian community learn how to walk with Jesus, as they transition from prison to society. Men and women apply for the program while they are in prison and upon acceptance they are assigned a mentor to begin the journey of discipleship. This relationship has a lasting impact upon both mentor and mentee and is critical to the success of the individual after they are released from prison. While inside prison the mentor and mentee begin to work on a transition plan that prepares them for release. After release, the mentee lives at our Discipleship Training Center where they begin the transition process with a community of like minded individuals in the program. While living in this environment they follow a program that equips them to become successful in their walk with Jesus and in life. In each of these steps they are guided by their mentor, the staff and the church community.

Maggie’s Place is funded entirely by the generosity of individuals and families like you, as well as civic-minded foundations, corporations, clubs, and faith communities. Financial donations and in-kind donations of diapers and other mom and baby items are vital to our mission. Maggie’s Place also relies on the commitment of volunteers to keep our homes functioning and to enrich the lives of our moms and babies. The gift of your time and treasure gives moms in desperate situations a chance to start again and build a bright future for their children.

Sunshine Acres is a non-profit home for children who are separated from their parents for many reasons. They are a full-time, year around Christian home for children who might otherwise be homeless. They take no State or Federal money and have never turned a child away because there was no money for their care. The home was started in 1954. Sunshine Acres has to date, given almost 2000 children the chance for a better life.
Our mission is to provide a loving, wholesome, Christian home for children who are separated from their parents, and to help them establish long-term relationships with stable parental figures preparing them for success in adult life.
A huge thank you to Denco Dental Construction, Inc. for their loving support of these most deserving children. Without the support of our community, we would not be able to care for boys and girls in need, right here in Mesa, Arizona. Since 1954, Sunshine Acres Children’s Home has provided a home for almost 2000 children coming from abuse, neglect, homelessness, parents too ill to care for them, failed adoptions and other crisis. Thank you Denco for seeing a need and stepping up to allow these children to experience renewed hope through your giving campaign. Countless lives have been changed because of your generosity and partnership. God bless you!
