Dr. Jay, Sharon Stone, Antwone Fisher, & William H. Macy Provide Star Power for 'Homeless not Toothless'
Dr. Jay Grossman is famous not only for the best smiles on celebrities, but also for his generous spirit providing new smiles to homeless individuals. Add some star powered fundraising with the likes of actress and philanthropist Sharon Stone, and you have quite a positive impact on those in need of a good and healthy smile.
Themed 'A Smile for Every Child,' this September 10th, 2009 event at the Shangri-La in Santa Monica spotlit the importance a healthy and pretty smile can have on a person's opportunities in the job market. Opportunities that spill over to positive directions.

"The mission of Homeless Not Toothless is to raise the pride and dignity of the homeless and underserved through quality dental services. We serve these individuals without regard to their race or gender. We are not looking to provide just the basics like fillings and cleanings. Rather, we seek to perform more sophisticated procedures that are difficult for the homeless to access – all with the hope of helping them find employment that will get them off the streets."
As such, a few hundred generous guests gathered to raise big monies for the cause. A cause that has served over 1,500 homeless individual via over 5,000 procedures worth well above $1.5 million dollars since 1992.
Homeless Not Toothless is affiliated with Sharon Stone and her sister Kelly Ston'es non-profit, Planet Hope.
"Planet Hope has helped tons of thousands of families from around the world. Planet Hope programs have been able to offer gratis medical and dental care, new clothes for kids, counseling and image makeovers for homeless women and women that have been victims of domestic violence at our annual summer camp. Planet Hope's mission of providing hope for a better life has made a tremendous difference to thousands of homeless and abused children and their families."
As such, Sharon Stone was honored.
So too was writer and producer Antwone Fisher.
"William H. Macy (Fargo) presented to Sharon Stone, producer Todd Black presented to Antwone Fisher.
Our basic program is simple: we recruit Dentists to donate their time and talents to help homeless people who want to help themselves. We began in 1992 as a network of volunteers that over the years has performed more than 5,000 procedures on more than 1,500 homeless individuals valued at over $1.5 Million dollars. In the past five years, we have opened an office in Brentwood that allows us to treat referrals from your primary area as well as became affiliated with Sharon Stone’s non-profit, Planet Hope."
"It is our goal to serve the 28,000 foster children in need and double our homeless patients to 3000 in 2010. We think this is ambitious yet attainable – at this point, the main thing standing between us and this achievement is our ability to raise the money required to cover the lab fees and supplies that will permit more Dentists to do more work, and it is our hope that you will help us on that front."
“Raising the pride and dignity of the underserved through quality dental services.”
