Dr. Marilyn Amaral and her smile-saving team rejuvenate wearied teeth with their compounded cosmetic and restorative dental expertise. A full inspection of the mouth begins the 90-minute procedure, during which cavity scouts check the teeth and gums for oral disease and smuggled lollipops. A series of four bitewing x-rays peers into the inner workings of chompers, ensuring that their beauty is not simply enamel-deep. Professional prophylaxis then removes clingy tartar and plaque, leaving grins gleaming brightly enough to blind uninvited encyclopedia salesmen. Houseplants and natural light lend the procedure rooms a homey feel. While waiting for their appointments, patients can set their eyes upon the guest room's television or hunt for unlicensed pictures of their pets in the assortment of magazines.

Community Smiles has set the goal to provide free dental examinations for 80 children from low-income families, but the organization requires additional funding in order to complete this goal.
