At Michels & Gauquie Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we consider ourselves unbelievably fortunate to be able to practice our passion every day. It’s a blessing to have a career that allows us to deliver smiles and improve lives. This is why philanthropy is at the heart of our practice.
Because we’ve seen the impact we can have on the lives of our patients, we’ve made it our mission to expand our reach and give back to the community we call home, and beyond. We are always looking for opportunities to make charitable contributions and offer our services for those who need it most.
We invite you to read below and learn more about our charitable efforts and how our patients are, by extension, part of these initiatives.

how we give back
Proceeds from each fluoride treatment contribute toward the donation of thousands of fluoride care kits to the deserving children of Eastern North Carolina at orphanages and churches.
