Philanthropy has always been an important part of Dr. Ankush Khanna’s life and something his parents instilled in him early at an early age. When he started Fresh Orthodontics, it was only natural that one of the core ideals would be giving back to the community we serve. Dr. Khanna and the Fresh Orthodontic really strive to help others and bring smiles to those in our own neighborhood and beyond. Read on for some of the ways we’ve been paying it forward.
Partners in Education Program
We’re all about supporting our local schools and we think a great education and a great smile go hand in hand! During the 2019-2020 school year, we’ve pledged to donate $50 to the school of every new patient who starts full or phase II treatment with us.
Brooklyn CenterStage Dance Studio Sponsorship
We’re proud to support Brooklyn CenterStage Dance Studio by sponsoring a deserving dance student. After all, the Brooklyn community has welcomed us with open arms. It brings us great joy to spread that kindness around.
New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital Halloween Fun
Every Halloween, we close up shop early and bring Halloween candy to the superheroes at the Pediatric ICU at New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. It’s truly one of our favorite days of the year. Who doesn’t love making kids smile?!
PS 118 Spring Auction and Holiday Market Sponsorship
We like to show PS 118 (Maurice Sendak Community School) some love by sponsoring their Holiday Market and Spring Auction. Both events are important – and fun! – ways the PTA raises money for the students.
PS 295 Touch-a-Truck Sponsorship
Fresh Orthodontics is a proud sponsor of the PS 295 Touch-a-Truck event. The school puts on the yearly shindig and 100% of the proceeds fund arts programs at PS 295, The Studio School of Arts and Culture in South Slope. You may have even seen our name on some hard hats!
Smiles Change Lives
For the past several years, we’ve been involved with Smiles Change Lives. The program pairs up kids and teens from low-income families with local orthodontists and they receive treatment for a nominal fee. The fee then goes back into the program and is used to recruit more doctors. Dr. Khanna has been donating his services to participants in the program and helping them get the beautiful, healthy smiles they deserve. You can read more about it here!
We’re Looking for Sponsorship Opportunities
We’re always on the lookout for ways to show our community some love. If you have an awesome organization or event that’s in need of sponsorship, let’s chat! We’d love to hear more about it and see if we can help out.
