FREE DENTAL CARE PROVIDED BY LOCAL DENTISTS AND TEAMSMILE PROGRAM
Nashville, TN – November 20, 2015 -- For the second consecutive year, the Tennessee Titans team dentist, Dr. Cristin McPherson-Lewis of BiTE Dentistry partnered with TeamSmile, a non-profit organization that provides life-changing dental care for underserved children, and the Tennessee Titans to provide free dental treatments on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at Nissan Stadium. More than 100 dental professionals, students and volunteers served over 350 Metro Nashville children.
Ryan Succop, kicker for the Tennessee Titans was on hand for the event along with Titans cheerleaders. After their dental treatment, the students celebrated with a dance party, and were gifted a goody bag with items to encourage good dental hygiene. Each child also participated in the Red Cross’ Pillow Case Project presentation, where they were empowered to take action preparing for emergencies.
“This is such a wonderful program to be involved with,” said Dr. Lewis. “I’m proud to serve the Tennessee Titans and today we’re serving the Nashville community. I’m thankful to all the dentists and their staff that volunteered their time today to assist in this program and to care for these children who would not otherwise be able to receive treatment.”
Dr. McPherson-Lewis has served the Titans since the team arrived in 1997, and has a specialty in sports and cosmetic dental procedures. TeamSmile is the nation’s premier advocacy group that partners oral health professionals with professional athletic organizations to provide dental care to those in need.
