Enhances Smile Voucher Program
Weslaco, TX — Dentists Who Care (DWC) Executive Director Jacqueline Flores announces that The Valley Baptists legacy Foundation contributes $50,000 to Dentists Who Care SMILE Voucher Program. “This is a monumental gift with extraordinary impact to Dentists Who Care. The partnership between Valley Baptists Legacy Foundation and Dentists Who Care is life-changing to many Rio Grande Valley low-income families who have no dental insurance through access to oral health care,” said Jacqueline Flores.

About Dentists Who Care
Dentists Who Care is a non-profit charitable organization created in 1996 to help solve the problem of poor oral health among children in the Rio Grande Valley and has provided over $11 million dollars in charitable care to over 30,000 children (and adults).
“We are able to do this thanks to over 200 dentists and their dental assistants who donate their services. And it is all done at no cost to the families, thanks to the support of our community leaders like Valley Baptists Legacy Foundation. Due to COVID-19 we have not been able to treat patients on our mobile dental unit, but with this gift, we will be able to redirect patients to a volunteer dentist who will see our patients at his/her office,” said Flores.
