Sharing Smiles Day 2016

Our 7th Annual Sharing Smiles Day was held on Saturday, April 16th, 2016 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. We were very happy to have MPP Deb Matthews spend the morning with us as well. 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 fun 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: Carolyn Karr (DDS Candidate 2018), Ashley Brown (DDS Candidate 2018), Allen Xian (DDS Candidate 2018), and Sarah Alves (DDS Candidate 2018). Safe to say OHTH London is in great hands for the upcoming year!

This year we are having Sharing Smiles Day on Sunday March 5th 2017. We are excited to be hosting our annual fundraising events along the way, which have been successful in previous year; 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 outreach events, including Sharing Smiles Day, brings in volunteers including 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.

Pictures from our 2014, 2015, and 2016 fundraising events are shown below.
