Knight of Smiles Gala
Dental industry professionals, as well as community, health and education leaders, recently gathered for a royal feast at what is being describe as “one of the most innovative and refreshing” Gala’s which is benefiting the work of the Delta Dental Health Theatre. The night was highlighted by a “Dancing for Smiles” competition, featuring performances by local influentials and their professional dance partners. Seven awards were also presented to individuals and organizations in recognition of their work with the theatre, and the St. Louis community at large, to further dental health, overall wellness and education.
