Providing Smiles Within Norfolk

$1,050 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 49 months
Park Place Dental Clinic, located in downtown Norfolk, VA has a mission of helping those who are uninsured and low incomed seek dental care through our charitable clinic. In a time where dental is not a huge funding priority yet an essential part in every day healthcare, Park Place works with donations and grants to keep its doors open and maintain our 501 C3 status for non-profits. It is because of the wonderful help of our volunteer Dentists and Dental Professions who take time out of their busy schedules, that we are able to treat patients Mon-Fri and help those in pain.

(Picture above was from our most recent Homeless Connect Project in Norfolk)

As we begin 2017, our clinic still has high hopes on wanting to expand our givng and help even more within our community. That is why we have established a program called, Buy A Smile, where donors like yourself can provide a donation to help cover the cost of an appointment or more for our patients. Even though each appointment for our patients costs $25, our clinic seeks no profit from the work we do.



What can your donation do for our clinic?

$25 can cover the cost of an appointment for a patient who may have hit hard times and can not afford to keep up with their care

$50 can help cover two patients, or help contribute the cost of supplies used on our patients

$100 or more can help keep our doors opened and rooms filled by helping cover our operating costs

Further more, if you are close to downtown Norfolk, then we invite you to stop by one day and see our clinic in action. Many our patients leave here with a smile on their face and a new found sense of confidence as they approach the world in search of better opportunities.

Hello everyone! As we push forward, we have made great strides in taking this clinic to new heights! We have several great outreach events coming up such as the DAD project in Dec and Homeless Connect in Jan 2016, but we still need help supporting our efforts within the community. The end of the year is always the hardest for us since funding becomes low, but this year we want to change that. Several programs are in the works to be developed to help our Norfolk residents even more. Along with providing dental services, we also want to start a scholarship program for future dental assistants who are interested in our own training program. So as you can see, every dollar you donate counts!
And as always, we invite you to come see our clinic and the great work it is doing because of our volunteers! Help make Park Place Dental even greater than it was!
