In The Community
At Superior Dental, our vision is “Improving Lives, Serving Others.” We believe this to our core, and it’s the guiding principle as to why we do what we do, and who we choose to donate to! We believe that improving the lives of people will make an impact and impression on their future. That’s why we do an annual food drive, Smiles for Freedom, and give to charities to help children and families. Giving is truly better than receiving and our main goal is to make an impact to brighten the futures of those in our community.
Take a look below to see some of the ways we have given back!
Pawsitive Impact Project
Team Member: Ashley Stine
Why Ashley supports this charitable cause: “I selected this charity because the love and bond between families and their pets is a very strong one, and no one should have to surrender a loved one due to financial difficulty.”
A bit more about this awesome charity: This program serves local Lincoln families and senior citizens who are low or fixed income or experiencing short term financial issues. They offer discounted or free things to help people care for their pets such as vaccines, food, toys, grooming items, disher, collars and leashes. Owning a pet adds cost to a household that some can’t afford and I would be heartbroken if I could no longer give basic things to my dogs to the point of no longer being able to keep them. Someone’s dog or cat could be the only thing getting them through hard times.

Ways to help include money donations, dropping off items pets need, or volunteering your time.
More about this awesome charity:
The Lincoln G.O.L.D. mission is to empower young women through leadership development and community involvement, while providing scholarships for area high school seniors who embody the goals and spirit of Lincoln G.O.L.D. and plan to attend a Nebraska-based college or university.
Lincoln G.O.L.D. is a one-of-a-kind organization in the Lincoln community. The benefits of the G.O.L.D. mission are numerous. Similar to the ripple in a pond, the G.O.L.D. mission benefits the G.O.L.D. young women, but advances the opportunity for college while growing Nebraska-based higher education.
Team Member: Judd
Why Judd supports this charitable cause: “I was recently approached by a relative about supporting Lincoln G.O.L.D. As I learned more about the organization, I thought it fit perfectly with Superior Dental Health’s mission: “ Improving Lives, Serving Others.” Lincoln G.O.L.D. provides educational and philanthropic activities, as well as focuses on leadership and development. They help build leaders, who in turn, help raise money to provide scholarships for others. Sounds like a win-win!”
Voices of Hope
More about this awesome charity:
Our vision is that all victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as their families and communities, receive responsive, empowering services and support that meet their needs, both individual and cultural, through advocacy and education aimed at eliminating recurrence, challenging oppressive social institutions, and reducing violence and oppression.
Team Member: Mallory
Why Mallory supports this charitable cause: “I and women who are very important to me have experienced a form of abuse from a man in the past. I was fortunate that I did not need the services Voices of Hope provide. However, I am happy to support the amazing work they do.
