Drive collects good for those serving in the U.S. Military

Associated Orthodontists is proud to announce its second annual supply drive for the U.S. Military at each of its six locations. The drive will run throughout the month of November, and all donations will be sent to our troops via Operation Care Package.

Current patients of Associated Orthodontists participating in the drive will be entered into a drawing as a thank you for their support. One winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, plus an additional winner from each Associated Orthodontists location will win 100 Smile Miles points.

The general public is also welcome to participate, and can drop items off at any Associated Orthodontists location during normal business hours. Participants are encouraged to contact their local Associated Orthodontists office to confirm weekly hours of operation.

“Supporting our communities continues to be an important cornerstone of our practice,” said Julie Gardner, Director of Practice Development with Associated Orthodontists. “Through Operation Care Package, we can support the local men and women serving our country, and also have an impact on those across our country.”
