Local Dentist Participates in Annual “Smiles for Life” National Campaign to Benefit Children

Posted on February 25, 2014 By

Imagine having a sparkling white smile and then imagine that your beautiful smile is helping families whose children have cancer or children who need cleft palate surgery. If you see people with beautifully whitened teeth, chances are they are participating in the 2014 Smiles for Life Campaign, sponsored each year by Toms River dentist Dr. Ron Rotem.

Dr. Rotem, a member of the national Crown Council, contributes 100 percent of his fees to charity for professionally whitening teeth from March 1 through June 30. Through the national Smiles for Life Campaign, Dr. Rotem has donated more than $50,000.00 during the past 10 years to charities, including Ocean of Love, a nonprofit organization that aids families whose children have cancer, and The Smile Train, which provides surgery for children who need cleft palate surgery.

Dr. Rotem says, “If you are planning to professionally whiten your teeth, this is a wonderful opportunity to do something for yourself, and, at the same time, make a difference in a child’s life.” The campaign ends June 30.
To contribute to the 2014 Smiles for Life Campaign, call Dr. Rotem’s office to reserve a date for whitening (732–341–8500).

Since 1998, The Smiles for Life Foundation, the charitable arm of the Crown Council, has raised more than $30 million for children’s charities across North America because members of Crown Council dental practices have agreed to donate the cost of professional tooth whitening during the Smiles for Life campaign.

Dr. Rotem graduated from NYU College of Dentistry in 1991. His practice focuses on cosmetic dentistry and conscious sedation. Dr. Rotem belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is affiliated with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, NJ Chapter of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation, the International College of Cranial Mandibular Orthopedics, the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, Monmouth/Ocean Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Rotem is an active member of the Crown Council. He is also a member of the Jersey Shore Business Network, Toms River.
