The whitening kits, which usually cost $526.00, will be discounted to $200.00 for this special benefit event. All proceeds go to Caroline County Habitat for Humanity. Appointments are not necessary.

This year’s event will support the homes at Lake Creek Court, a major subdivision in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Federalsburg. When completed Lake Creek Court will be a neighborhood of nine affordable, single-family, three- and four-bedroom homes. The first four homes are “under roof”, three homes will be dedicated by the end of May and the two remaining homes are in the foundation stage.

Smiles By Holsinger & Higgins opened in February 1986 and offers the convenience of comprehensive care for adult patients. They provide routine dental check-ups and cleanings as well as cosmetic enhancements to improve the appearance of crooked, chipped, unevenly spaced, or stained teeth. Since 2001 Smiles By Holsinger & Higgins has also provided sedation dentistry for the fearful patient or for those patients who wish to combine multiple procedures in fewer appointments.

Caroline County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run non-profit affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. All donations from the White-A-Thon will go towards construction materials for building houses for families in need in the county.
