MESA, Ariz. – A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) has teamed up with AJ’s Fine Foods for Smile Forward, an ATSU initiative that provides funds to those in need of dental care.

Throughout the month of March, customers have the opportunity to donate to Smile Forward at all Arizona AJ’s Fine Foods locations.

ASDOH 088Program funding is provided through the generous support of donors, civic organizations and corporate partners. Smile Forward has granted services to hundreds of individual patients, community programs serving children, women at risk, and medically-compromised patients equating to more than $170,000 in services since 2005.

“ATSU thanks Bashas’ Family of Stores for allowing us to feature Smile Forward at their AJ’s Fine Foods store locations,” said Jack Dillenberg, DDS, MPH, dean, ATSU-ASDOH. “Funds raised will allow us to continue supporting the oral healthcare needs of underserved individuals in our community.”

Donations can be made at check-out in any increment, and 100 percent of proceeds raised will go to fund Smile Forward patient care.  Patients receive treatment at two University-affiliated clinics: ATSU-ASDOH Clinic in Mesa or Dental Care West located in Glendale.
