Event Info | Get Books By This Author

DESCRIPTION

Writer, songwriter and local businessman Andy Gutman today announced the release of his children’s book, Even. The story, written in a lyrical style amidst vibrant illustrations, offers a sweet lesson in the eternal love and strong bond between a father and his daughter.

To introduce his book to the community at large and give parents an opportunity to spend quality time with their children, Gutman’s appearance at Honey Space features family-fun activities, including a reading of his new book, Even, and entertainment by a local musician, who will perform the companion songs from all three of Gutman’s books. Gutman also will sign copies of his books for attendees. There will be coloring activities and a photo booth for parents and their children to mark the special event. Fall-themed refreshments, such as cider and doughnuts, will be served.

Even is the third children’s book for Gutman and was inspired by his own relationship with his daughter, Riley. He also is the author of Charlie the Caterpillar and Pop Lullaby, and has written and produced numerous musical pieces. His children’s books were originally written as song and then transformed into books.

Local Orthodontist to Donate Over $300,000 in Braces, Change Lives of Local Children

SCL_color logo

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Local Orthodontist to Donate Over $300,000 in Braces, Change the Lives of Local Children

Detroit, MI: Dr. Jamie Reynolds of Spillane & Reynolds Orthodontics, with offices in Novi and Rochester, Michigan, is stepping up in a major way to donate braces to kids in his community through the nonprofit Smiles Change Lives.  On November 10, 2018, he will be holding a Screening Day to screen all the children in the greater Detroit areas that are currently waiting to receive braces through the nonprofit program.

Smiles Change Lives is a national nonprofit that helps kids get braces who could not otherwise afford them. On average, braces cost $6,000 per child, making them out of reach for many hard working families. Further, orthodontic treatment has long been considered cosmetic by insurance companies, providing little assistance, even for those that are insured. As a result, many children and teens suffer unnecessary discomfort and embarrassment from their misaligned teeth. Smiles Change Lives’ mission is to provide these families with the opportunity to provide their children with braces through its network of over 800 volunteer orthodontists in the United States and Canada.

Dr. Reynolds has been treating kids through Smiles Change Lives since 2016. This is not the first time he has gone above and beyond to help kids in his community. On average, Dr. Reynolds donates orthodontic treatment to 8 kids per year through Smiles Change Lives.  With more than 50 kids on the waiting list to be treated through the Smiles Change Lives program, Dr. Reynolds has committed to help clear out the wait list by agreeing to treat at least 50 qualified children, which is approximately $300,000 in donated services.

“The demand for our program in the greater Detroit area has far exceeded the number of orthodontists we have in our network,” stated Alexis Barclay, Director of Provider Services for Smiles Change Lives. “Dr. Reynold’s dedication to treat the 50+ children waiting to receive braces is truly life changing for these kids.”

In the words of a mother whose daughter recently completed treatment, “On behalf of myself and daughter, please accept our deepest thanks for a life changing experience for my daughter. She smiles all the time now and has a sense of confidence I’ve never seen before. To everyone responsible, please know that you have helped another child regain a huge part of herself back. She may go on to change the world in a better way now; just like Smiles Change Lives did for her.”

To qualify for the program, a child must be between the ages of 7-21, have good oral hygiene, not be wearing braces currently, have a moderate to severe need for braces, and meet certain financial guidelines (e.g., for a family of 4, their household income must be below $61,500).  Qualified families contribute $650 toward the cost of treatment and Smiles Change Lives and the treating orthodontist cover the remainder of the costs.  Families interested in the event should contactinfo@smileschangelives.org to learn more.

To date, Smiles Change Lives and its network of orthodontists have helped more than 12,000 kids receive braces in the United States and Canada. Please watch this short video to learn more:
