Join Whitney Young Health’s Campaign for Smiles


From the desk of Kate Renna, Development & Marketing Specialist at Whitney Young Health.

Have you ever wished there was a magic wand that could prevent disease, open children to learning, and help people land jobs? Good news – There is!

Good oral health care, including regular visits to the dentist not only keeps one healthy, but helps improve their overall confidence and appearance as well! Whitney Young Health wants to give people a reason to smile and we have a plan. Campaign for Smiles is an opportunity to not only relocate our dental clinic to a more modern and spacious venue, but to expand our dental services so we can see and treat more patients that need this type of health care.

Here’s how we plan to do that:

New Dental Clinic

  • Relocation of Dental Clinic to 900 Lark Drive, Albany, NY
  • Includes complete retrofit of space
  • New equipment

The Tooth Fairy Fund

  • Early intervention, prevention and treatment
  • School-based dental programs
  • Increase in access to dental care, regardless of income
  • Expansion of services

So far we’ve raised $1.3 million out of the $2.5 million needed to achieve this mission and we need your help! There are multiple ways you can give and be a part of our life-changing Campaign for Smiles.
