Bellevue dentist partners with Friends of Youth

Local dental patients can have their teeth whitened and help a child in need by visiting local dentist Dr. Aalam Samsavar.

The campaign runs until June 30, and 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures done at Dr. Samsavar’s are contributed directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation. This foundation uses donations from the community to help fund worthy children’s charities and humanitarian work. Half the donations will be contributed to the Friends of Youth Foundation in Kirkland.

Since 1951, Friends of Youth has been helping young people in challenging circumstances get their lives back on track. Today, Friends of Youth positively impacts over 5,500 youth and young adults ages 6-24 and their families each year, operating facilities and programs at 25 sites in 18 cities across the Puget Sound region. In addition to operating the only overnight youth shelters on the Eastside, they offer youth development initiatives, in-home family support for young parents of newborns, parent education, youth and family counseling, substance use counseling, therapeutic foster care, residential treatment and transitional housing for homeless young people and teen mothers.

Tooth whitening patients receive their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate of $120 for in office whitening and $45 for at home whitening. They can enhance their own smile while also improving the lives of disadvantaged children.

Smiles For Life allows a person to help children in need by doing something that benefits them as well. Dr. Samsavar donates his time and expertise, while Ultradent generously provides all Opalescence whitening products. Patients receive a brighter smile and help children get a brighter future.”

Participants can also refer friends to Dr Samsavar by linking to the Smiles For Life site, making it easier than ever to give the gift of a new smile to friends and loved ones, while also giving hope to children in need.
