Smilesgiving 2020

Smilesgiving 2020

It is time for Smilesgiving! The Skelton Orthodontics team loves to spread smiles for miles and miles all year long, but especially during the holidays. We are now accepting donations for our Smilesgiving! These donations go to local food pantries for those in need this holiday season. We need your help to fill up local pantries before Thanksgiving!

*To follow COVID restrictions and social distancing, we will sit a drum in the foyer for easy drop off. In addition, you can call in and someone will meet you at the car to pick up your donations for you.
