GIVING BACK

Here at Harwell & Cook Orthodontics, not only do we provide top orthodontic care for the residents of the various locations we serve, but we also take pride in our commitment to serving our communities. We love and appreciate our patients and their families and enjoy being a part of the community we serve. Giving back is a major part of what we do! We enjoy supporting local non-profit organizations, sporting events, schools, and communities, providing financial support, donations, and volunteered time. You can learn about a few of our favorite programs below.

We’re your neighbors, so don’t be surprised if you see us (and our Braces Bus) at your local school, at sporting events, and around your community and non-profit events! Be sure to check our Facebook page often for updates on what we’re up to and to find out how you can join us in supporting our community!

ESSAY #1:

As professionals in the dental field, we believe a healthy smile can have a positive effect on the lives of our patients. How do you feel about this statement? In other words, how has your smile affected your life (in either a positive or negative way)?

ESSAY #2:

Although we believe that academics are very important, we also believe that being involved in extracurricular and community activities are equally important. In your life, how have your activities outside the classroom influenced you?
2019 Recipient Jacob After my Invisalign treatment began to close the gap between my teeth over time, I felt much more confident in my smile.
2019 Recipient McKinlea I am now getting ready to venture off to college. I may be going far away from home and it will be a little scary to be so far from my hometown. One thing that will make it a little easier is knowing that I have a smile that I can be proud of.

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation

We believe everyone deserves a great smile. That’s why Harwell & Cook Orthodontics donates their services to Smile for a Lifetime scholarship recipients. Smile for a Lifetime is an international non-profit organization making orthodontic treatment a reality for underserved kids.
