Hear from Someone Who Has Experienced the Difference

Dr. Bright is by far the best pediatric dentist we've ever met (we've been to several). Our son has autism and needed some work done. Every other dentist immediately said he would need to be put to sleep. But Dr. Bright gave him a chance, and in three appointments, he fixed all his cavities. He was so patient with our son and so kind. We don't live close, but it's worth the drive. We are so thankful for Dr. Bright.

Healthy smiles make for happy people, so our goal is to help children in Northeast Florida love their smiles.

Dr. Bright…Learn more about our pediatric dentist… and the Bright Smiles team strive to make a positive impact by giving back to our community in St. Johns, FL.

Here are some ways we give back:

  • School Visits

    Dr. Bright enjoys touring local schools and teaching children that oral health can be fun! He understands that many children are a little nervous about visiting the dentist, so he’s made it his mission to show them that there’s nothing to be worried about.

  • Local Elementary School Sponsor

    We believe in and support those who devote themselves to nurturing bright futures. Dr. Bright sponsors several local elementary schools annually! Those funds are used to help provide things like new playground equipment or shade structures for students, library books, assistance with teacher appreciation programs, supplies and so much more!

  • Charitable Donations

    We’re proud to give back to the communities of Northeast Florida in any way we can.

    Annually, Bright Smiles is a sponsor of the Flounder Tournament supporting the Jacksonville School for Autism.

    We also partner with Hugs Across the CountyOpens link in a new window, a St John’s county non-profit organization that provides clothing, supplies and food items for underserved children in our community.
