GIVING BACK WITH A SMILE: HOW GLO’S MISSION EXTENDS BEYOND THE OFFICE
As we enter this season of gratitude, we’re reminded of not only how lucky we are but how good it feels to give back to others. Working in the field of dentistry, the smile of a satisfied patient speaks volumes. Witnessing this daily is certainly a job perk!
But we also see first-hand that while dental care is a necessity, it’s not accessible to all. With over 85 million Americans lacking oral health care coverage, this is a crisis deserving of attention and change. And while we hope to see things continually improve, GLO Science is taking steps now to ensure everyone in need receives proper treatment, regardless of economic status.
For this reason, the GLO Good Foundation was founded by Dr. Jonathan B. Levine and Stacey Levine. They believe everyone is deserving and worthy of a healthy smile, and are committed to providing oral care and education to underserved communities in need.
Oral health education is the foundation of each clinic. We not only treat but teach important lifestyle habits to prevent dental disease from becoming life-threatening. We offer recreational programs and activities on dental and medical education, in addition to yoga, meditation, and nutrition education.
Here are some key highlights of past GLO Good missions:
- GLO Good’s first stop was Rwanda in 2010, where Dr. Levine and Stacey Levine partnered with Foundation Rwanda to provide oral health screenings, hygiene tools, and education to 220 women and their children born of rape during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.
- In 2015, they partnered with Twice and with Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule Foundation to bring a free dental and medical clinic to the community of Gregory Town, Eleuthera.
- Through an ongoing partnership with Dr. Mehmet Oz’s HealthCorps, GLO Good is working to provide oral health care & education to high school students and their families in the greater NYC area & around the United States.
- In response to the COVID-19 global health pandemic, GLO Good partnered with SONSIEL (the Society of Nurse Scientists Innovators Entrepreneurs & Leaders) to provide PPE, including vital respirator masks, to healthcare providers on the frontline.
GLO Science is more than just an innovative teeth whitening company. We’re focused on the paramount mission of providing essential oral care to those who need it most.
That’s why a portion of all sales from GLO Science and Twice go directly toward supporting the missions of GLO Good. So, during this holiday season, remind patients that when they purchase a professional teeth whitening treatment for themselves, they’re also giving a smile to someone else. And after all, that’s what this time of year is all about.
