Our impact

Our commitment to making people smile extends to the organizations, churches, schools, and teams of greater Louisville and its surrounding areas. We love volunteering our time and effort to these communities, and it truly warms our hearts to further our mission through our practice.

 

Here are some of the groups we support.

We’re happy to share that our staff is also active in our community partnerships! To celebrate National Dental Health Month every February, some of our staff visit elementary schools to teach children how to properly care for their teeth.

Blanket Louisville

Every year, Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics sponsors a continuing education course where we ask the participants to bring a new or barely used blanket as a donation to Blanket Louisville. This project distributes blankets to homeless shelters in the greater metropolitan area.

Smiles Change Lives (SCL)

Smiles Change Lives is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free orthodontic treatment for children in need. Orthodontists across the country partner with SCL to provide braces for qualified children and teens.

We regularly volunteer with the Louisville Dental Society free dental van, providing free dental screenings and treatment to homeless and poor/uninsured people in the Louisville community.

It is our great honor to share our Smiles Change Lives (SCL) patients who have been able to complete their treatment: Eric Phillips, Addison Haynes, and Dylan Moreno.
