In 2005, the Foundation partnered with a metal refinery and began Crowns for Kids® (CFK) to benefit Smiles for Kids. In this program, member dentists collect scrap metal from their patients’ dental treatment in CFK jars, the jars are collected and sent to the metal refinery (Star Group), and the refinery sends a check to the Foundation each month. In 2018, this program surpassed the $280,000 mark in collections – and it all goes to benefit SFK!
When you have a few crowns collected (jar does not need to be full!), call SDDS at 916.446.1227 for a pick up!
