During the month of June the SmileFaith Foundation will be the featured charitable organization at the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office. SmileFaith will be opening a Veterans Community Dental Clinic later this year. Proceeds from the charitable promotion will be used primarily to help open and operate the clinic, which will serve Pasco County and the Greater Tampa Bay area. Please stop by any of the five tax collector offices in Pasco County and make a donation to support this worthy effort.
“SmileFaith’s Smile Makeover Program helps under-served individuals in the Tampa Bay area achieve complete, new smiles, better health and renewed hope for living,” states Dr. Mike O’ Carroll, Founder of SmileFaith Foundation. “The Veterans Community Dental Clinic will be open in late 2017 and will help veterans who do not have access to VA dental benefits, which is approximately 95% of all veterans. The charitable clinic will also serve to relieve suffering and inspire hope for disadvantaged residents.”
The goal of the new SmileFaith dental clinic will be to “bridge the gap,” renewing hope and providing oral health services to thousands of under-served veterans. The Clinic will also provide life coach counseling to veterans in transition. The clinic will be located at 5400 School Road in New Port Richey.
“I was most impressed with Dr. O’ Carroll and his mission to provide dental care to the community, especially veterans and those without insurance,” states Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “The SmileFaith Foundation is a perfect example of the charitable organization we like to support. It operates primarily on donations and volunteers and provides a needed service that cannot easily be found elsewhere in the community. I have no doubt our generous community will help SmileFaith achieve its goal. I am looking forward to seeing the dental clinic up and running later this year.”
