At the practice of our cosmetic dentist, Michael Fulbright, D.D.S., our entire dental team cares about helping others in our community. We are always looking for ways to give back and participate in various charitable events to provide services to those in need. In fact, our practice has been featured in several news segments and publications showcasing our charitable efforts. The following is just a small sample of our commitment to bettering Redondo Beach and surrounding communities:
Give Back a Smile
Dr. Michael Fulbright participates in the Give Back a Smile program, which provides comprehensive dental work to domestic violence survivors. Through this foundation, Dr. Fulbright and his staff have helped patients regain function in their teeth and restore confidence in their appearance, ultimately giving them beautiful smiles.
The Give Back a Smile program started in 1999. Since then, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) member dentists and laboratories from around the country have volunteered their time and services to perform cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures for survivors of domestic violence. Currently, there are more than 250 domestic violence survivors being treated through Give Back a Smile.
Fighting Back Against Hate Crimes
Dr. Fulbright has been featured in the Associated Press and NBC News for donating his time to repair a hate crime victim’s teeth. The victim was abused verbally and physically because of his sexuality. After the assault, the Redondo Beach community decided to hold a fundraiser for Sanchez at a local restaurant to cover his medical expenses and offer their support. Sanchez had many of his teeth knocked out and could not afford the extensive dental work needed to restore them. Dr. Fulbright volunteered his services and performed about $15,000 worth of dental work for Sanchez, including three root canals.
This is just one of the many instances where Dr. Fulbright and his staff have donated dental work for hate crime survivors.
Mommy Makeovers from Aesthetic Edge (Now Marcus Medical Spa)
Partnering with Marcus Medical Spa, Dr. Fulbright has participated in two Mommy Makeover Contests. The finalists were mother’s who have undergone distressed circumstances from raising children with severe health issues, to being unemployed and single raising children on their own. In all cases, the mothers had little or no time for themselves and were given complete beauty makeovers. Dr. Fulbright donated services such as teeth whitening and hygiene treatments.
