Delta Dental of Washington is seeking nominations for Smile Makers throughout the state for its annual Smile Power tour.

From Port Angeles to Pullman, Smile Makers are community members who bring smiles to others through acts of kindness, volunteering and other good deeds.

During the Smile Power tour, Delta Dental of Washington and the Tooth Fairy travel across the state to surprise Smile Makers in unexpected ways, thanking them for spreading smiles and for making their communities a better place. Each surprise is personalized to ensure an experience as unique and special as they are – planned with help from the nominator.

Past Smile Makers include community volunteers, school teachers, grocery store clerks, firefighters and others who brighten the days and bring smiles to others. For more information on past Smile Maker surprises, including videos and individual stories, visit the Delta Dental of Washington Smile Power webpage.

To nominate a Smile Maker, visit PowerYourSmile.com.

If selected, Delta Dental of Washington will reach out using the contact information provided in the nomination in advance of the nearest Smile Power tour. The 2018 Smile Power tours are scheduled for April through September, and nominations are accepted for the duration of the program.
