Beautiful Smile LLC’s commitment to the community is strong; Dr. Douglas donates dental services yearly. The goal is to select a candidate who is a victim of violence for a cosmetic reconstructive treatment. Victims must possess an ability to succeed in a job development program and return to work in the community. The candidates must also display a desire to give back to others while working in their community. Too often great employees are overlooked as a result of a poor oral facial appearance. The donation of advanced dental therapy that may exceed $20,000 is given to build self esteem and/or change lives. Beautiful Smile LLC has recognized the importance of group meetings in the community to promote awareness of medical complications associated with untreated dental disorders or missing teeth.
Beautiful Smile LLC was created after the failed attempt to revitalize a dental practice. Dr. Douglas recognizes the trend in Dentistry from 1970’s through the 1990’s, which lacked a quality of service and innovation desired by our baby boomers. This population is living longer, and do not want removable teeth. The baby boomers want the same quality of life as in their 30’s and 40’s, when it comes to food choice and appearance. This population wants to “look good” and “feel good.” Lastly, the baby boomers do not have a lot of time for multiple visits. In 2002 Beautiful Smile LLC was formed and led the mission to cater to families and the needs of the aging population for their quests to maintain their youth and vitality through a unique dental service and delivery. Beautiful Smile LLC elicits the services of Coaching Solutions and continues to be successful in the delivery of the care envisioned by guests.
Beautiful Smile LLC is honored to be recognized by Forbes® April edition of the Global Super Stars.
