Advanced Dental Extending Operation Whiter-Brighter Through April 1

Advanced Dental Extending Operation Whiter-Brighter Through April 1

Advanced Dental is extending its fundraising program for the 914th United States Air Force Reserve Base through April 1.

That is not an April Fools’ joke.

Due to the wintry weather, Dr. Stuart Weinstein, owner/operator of Advanced Dental, and his team want to offer another opportunity to anyone seeking to participate in the fundraiser for the local air base. Through Operation Whiter-Brighter, all proceeds from professional teeth whitenings at Advanced Dental are donated to the base’s Office of Family Support Services.

The offer is not restricted to current patients of Advanced Dental.

More than $3,600 was raised last year, the eighth year of the program. Since its inception, Operation Whiter-Brighter has raised thousands of dollars in support of families who have a service member overseas.

Advanced Dental is located at 9501 Niagara Falls Blvd. To schedule an appointment, please call (716) 297-1711.

Designated Drivers Hold the Key to a Safe and Successful Holiday Season

 

The holidays are upon us — a time to celebrate with family and friends and prepare to ring in the New Year. And during this hectic season, there’s one thing we simply cannot forget, and it’s far more important than any gift. 

“When we’re out celebrating the holidays, we cannot forget to designate a sober driver who will get us home safely at the end of the night,” said Monica Farrar, director of The Resource Training Center in Amherst. “Nothing can kill the buzz of the holidays quicker than a buzzed or impaired driver out on the road.”
