Local dentists holding ‘free smile’ contest

NEW PORT RICHEY — Dentists Richard Sable, Anna Kratser and Veronica Thompson and their team at Grand Dentistry of New Port Richey are giving away a free smile makeover to one lucky candidate.

The no-cost dental work is part of “My Free Smile,” a program in which dentist offices around the country can participate.

“Having a beautiful, healthy smile that you’re proud to show off is important in making great first impressions and having increased self-esteem,” said Sable. “With My Free Smile, we hope to positively impact the life of the chosen candidate — not only increasing his or her self-confidence, but improving their oral health in the process.”

Candidates, who must be 18 or older, can apply by sending in a photo of their teeth and an explanation of why they deserve to be the winner. Stories and photos can be submitted at

Applicants will be accepted through Nov. 23. The winner will be announced on Dec. 12.

Not only will the winner receive a complete smile makeover worth up to $10,000, but he or she will also receive a complete hair and clothing makeover provided through partnerships with local businesses.

Once the winner is chosen, the smile makeover will be completed over a few weeks. Once complete, a final reveal of the winner’s makeover will be held at Grand Dentistry of New Port Richey, 4530 Grand Blvd.
