Sharing Smiles Day 2017

Our 8th Annual Sharing Smiles Day was held on Sunday, March 5th, 2017, at the Great Hall on Western University’s Campus. The day was a huge success! Everyone, including our participants, volunteers and dentists from within the community, had smiles on their face all day long. Our morning was fun filled with carnival games, followed by a delicious lunch and speakers, and the day finished up with our oral hygiene demonstrations for all of our participants. A huge thanks goes out to all of our volunteers and sponsors who help make this day happen, and of course to all of our participants, who are the stars of Sharing Smiles Day!

We have received tremendous support from our Schulich dental students, faculty and staff with our fundraisers so far and we extend our thanks and appreciate for all the support. Check out a few of the photos from these fund fundraisers below.

We’d like to take an opportunity to congratulate and introduce the co-chairs for the upcoming year of OHTH London and the 2017 Sharing Smile Day event: Brittany Davies (DDS Candidate 2020), Amr Alsabbagh (DDS Candidate 2020), Alana Fraser (DDS Candidate 2019), and Shirley Chan (DDS Candidate 2019). Safe to say OHTH London is in great hands for the upcoming year!

This year’s Sharing Smiles Day is still TBD so stay tuned! However, we are excited to be hosting our annual fundraising events along the way. These successful events include our: Halloween bake sale, yoga class, coffee house, and community outreach programs. We also have some new ideas for our supporters that we will be sharing soon! We are looking forward to another year ahead.

 

Who we are

The London OHTH chapter was first established in August 2009 by Drs. J. Birek & J. McCallum and is currently led by the dental students and faculty from the Western University, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.

Over the past years we have made a lot of progress. In fact, our chapter’s 2016 Sharing Smiles Day was even covered by CTV News London and you can check it out here.

Our outreach events, including Sharing Smiles Day, brings in countless volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to help out the community. They include Fanshawe College Dental Hygiene students, and Western University Faculty of Dentistry Alumni.

Fundraising Events

Over the past eight years, the London OHTH team has worked very hard to host a variety of fundraising initiatives! We have been able to host annual Coffee Houses, showcasing the talent of Schulich’s students and faculty. This event is always well-received and exciting for all. Additionally, multiple times a year we put on our baker hats to bake tasty treats and raise money for OHTH. To all of those that have supported these events over the years, we thank you very much, and are very grateful.
