Sara Martin’s husband contracted a rare form of bone disease she
spent most of her time caring for him. In August of 2011 her
husband lost his battle. During his long illness Sara let her
own health slide and as a result was left with severely decaying
teeth and periodontal (gum) disease that threatened to take her
That’s about the time she met Dr. Rand Hunter of Holly Dental
Care. Sara was unable to afford
all the care she needed so Dr.
Hunter and his staff decided to do something about Sara’s
condition. They have offered her a free smile makeover.
“I’m thrilled at the kindness and generosity of Dr. Hunter and
everyone at Holly Dental,” Sara said. “It just proves there are
still people in this world that will go out of their way to help
Dr. Hunter and his staff call their charitable outreach program
“Change a Smile, Change a Life” and plan to make this an annual
“We wanted to find a way to help people like Sara. Unfortunately
we can’t help everyone, but every little bit helps,” says Dr.
Hunter. “When people fall on hard times their dental health is
forced down the priority list. We understand that and want to
help however we can.”
Sara completed her treatment on the one year anniversary of her
husband’s passing. She will be at Holly Dental Care on
Wednesday, April 24th, 2013, showing off her new smile and
taking part in “Lumineers Day,” an event promoting smile
Holly Dental Care Participates in National LUMIDAY Event
the makers of LUMINEERS™, announced the introduction of its inaugural National LUMIDay, a nationwide
initiative that occurred April 24, 2013, dedicated to elevating consumer awareness around the
importance of improving smiles and maintaining oral hygiene. Individuals who booked an appointment
with a LUMINEERS dentist on National LUMIDay discovered the benefits of receiving natural-looking,
ultra-thin veneers that reshape and permanently whiten teeth, while being educated on oral cancer
detection in recognition of April’s Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
Drs. Randy and Marie Hunter were very excited to participate in this special day. During the day-long
open house, they were offering complimentary screenings and information about several cosmetic
treatments. Additional doctors and staff were on hand to serve you from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Additionally,
their charity, Change a Smile, Change a Life, was represented, and visitors had an opportunity to meet
Holly Dental Care’s gift recipient, Sara Martin, to see her amazing new smile up close and talk to her
about her transformative experience. If you missed out on your new smile at this year’s event, please
join us next year!
Information on several treatments were available, including:
• Lumineers – modern, ultra-thin veneers that require very
little tooth alteration
• KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ – extremely effective
professional teeth whitening
• Six Month Smiles™ – a discreet, low-force method of
straightening in a very short time
“According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, virtually all
adults—99 percent—believe a smile is an important social asset,” said
Steven Semmelmayer, CEO of DenMat, the company that manufactures LUMINEERS.
“Smiles create an immediate, first impression. As part of our commitment to
give adults—young and old—a stunning, permanently white smile that boosts
confidence, we have introduced National LUMIDay to raise awareness of the
life-changing benefits bright, beautiful LUMINEERS deliver.”
Holly Dental Care
utilized LumiSmile™ cosmetic imaging to show visitors what their new smile could
look like with Lumineers and other cosmetic treatments.
As part of the National LUMIDay celebration each year, dentists all over the country, including Drs. Randy and Marie Hunter,
will also be educating patients on oral cancer detection and proper dental care in recognition of April’s Oral Cancer Awareness
Month. For the fifth consecutive year, there has been an increase in the number of U.S. patients diagnosed with oral and
oropharyngeal cancer, and more than 8,000 fatal cases are expected to occur in 2013. Creating awareness of proactive oral screening
exams and the symptoms to be mindful of contributes to earlier disease detection and helps to reverse unfavorable statistics.
