This mom has a bright smile. I want one too! Did I ever think that my passion for coffee and Diet Coke with Lime would bring me to write a post about how a visit to your dentist might help absolve mommy guilt? Of course not. But guess what? It is true!
“But Devra, that sounds like crazy talk!” Not so. Here’s why.
How many of us would like to do something just for us but then the mommy guilt creeps in and tells us “no, it’s too much money, too much time, not enough time, too much energy, too little energy, I don’t really need it, I can wait for another time, I’ll do it after…” you get the picture. We talk ourselves out of it.
I just found out about a program some dentists are participating in where are teeth whitened AND I get to give a donation to help needy families. The dentists donate their services too! In addition to all of that, the teeth whitening is being offered at a discount. SCORE!
Here is the website where you can find out if a dentist near you is participating: Smiles For Life
If teeth whitening isn’t your thing, then look for other kinds of services being offered in your community at a discount. There are some hair salons who do cut-a-thons for charities, and some restaurants offer fundraising nights too.
