Sharing Smiles Day 2019

On Sunday March 24th, the London Chapter of Oral Health, Total Health celebrated our 10th annual Sharing Smiles Day!

The event was held at the Great Hall on the Western University campus. We had over 200 people in attendance including participants, dental students, dental hygiene students, dental assisting students, community dentists and more! Everyone had big smiles on their faces all morning long.

A big thank you to our volunteers and title sponsors Colgate and the JBS foundation for making this day possible!

We would also like to thank Dr. Sigal, ODA president Dr. Stevenson, and Dr. Sen from the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry for taking the time to come to our Sharing Smiles Day and speak with our volunteers and participants.

We would like to congratulate and introduce our OHTH Co-chairs for the 2019-2020 school year:

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. Also, for more pictures from our 2018 Sharing Smiles Day, 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.

Pictures from our 2014 – 2018 fundraising events are shown below.
