Associated Orthodontists Supporting Troops this November

Collecting goods for Operation Care Package

In honor of Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, Associated Orthodontists is hosting a collection for the armed forces at each of its five 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 Kindle Fire and a $25 Amazon gift card, plus an additional winner from each Associated Orthodontists location will win 300 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.

“Giving back to our communities has always been important part of our practice,” said Julie Gardner, Director of Practice Development with Associated Orthodontists. “Working with Operation Care Package allows us to support not only the local men and women serving our country, but those across the nation.”
