connected hearts

Our community supports our business by seeking orthodontic care, and in turn, we support our community by "giving back" and/or "paying it forward". Of particular importance to us are: education and family. We have chosen to heavily support Mercer Island and surrounding schools with monetary donations, PTA support, dental education seminars, auction donations and capital campaign funding. We view our youth as tomorrow's leaders and recognize the value of educating our children to realize their "best self". We also understand that sometimes families face hardship, often through no fault of their own, such as sickness, death and transition. We feel passionate about helping families in need and applaud the work of Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (MIYFS). We are strong supporters of MIYFS and the Mercer Island Boys and Girls Club. Finally, whenever possible, we purchase local goods from local vendors right here on Mercer Island and have chosen to form business associations with Islanders whenever possible. A strong community flourishes and we are committed to our local families and businesses.


How We Support the Community.

  • Mercer Island Farmers Market: As the Sponsor of the Children's Table, we give a monetary donation to the Market and fund all of the hands-on educational activities for the entire Market season. Each week, children learn about nutrition and farming with Judy Witmer, a professional early child and parent educator. Activities include: planting sunflower seeds, making vegetable prints, growing garlic sprouts, and making apple juice with an old-fashioned apple press.
  • Mercer Island Youth and Family Services: Each year, we make a monetary donation to Mercer Island Youth and Family Services. Additionally, during the month of November, we collect non-perishable food items to stock the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Food Pantry. Participants receive points on their Orthodontic Associates of Mercer Island Patient Rewards Card as incentive to aid us in our support.
  • Mercer Island Schools Foundation: In addition to our "Bridge the Gap" and "Breakfast of Champions" monetary donation to Mercer Island Schools Foundation, we have entered into an exciting partnership with Mercer Island Schools Foundation in a portion of our treatment fee is donated to Mercer Island Schools Foundation for each new patient who begins orthodontic treatment in our practice.
