Well for starters, who DOESN’T smile when they have a burrito.  I know we do! And now you have a reason to smile even MORE.

the burrito projectDr. T is super excited to partner with the local non-profit called the Bakersfield Burrito Project. The Bakersfield Burrito Project was established over 9 years ago as more of an underground system to support the homeless. Today, the organization has grown to feed over 1000 homeless citizens in Bakersfield each month, with the help of an all-volunteer staff and support of local businesses.

Dr. T and our Smile Squad will be out there volunteering this year but Dr. T is taking his support a step further.

To help feed the homeless and support the Bakersfield Burrito Project, Dr. Thurman will be donating funds to the organization for every patient that gets braces or Invisalign at Thurman Orthodontics.  So when you start on your new smile at our office, you’ll essentially be feeding 6 homeless people! How awesome is that?!

Creating smiles is what we do but giving smiles is who we are. We can’t wait to see the impact of our efforts this year!
