It all began in 1973 when Philadelphia Eagles football player Fred Hill and his wife, Fran, learned that their daughter, Kim, had leukemia. While receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), they met other families who drove hours to the hospital to be with their children, only to sleep overnight in waiting room chairs and eat from vending machines because they had nowhere else to go.
Fred and Fran Hill decided to do something for these families, teaming up with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dr. Audrey Evans and local McDonald’s owner/operators. McDonald’s gift of the Shamrock Shakes’ proceeds made it possible to purchase and restore a house near the hospital where these families could stay and the first Ronald McDonald House was born. Since that time, more than 350 Houses have been opened worldwide.
Dr. Duncan is also involved in the growing community of Holly Springs. He has taken time to speak at local schools on dental hygiene and has provided care packages for each student that participated. We see all ages at Spring Smiles.
We have a Airdec Filtration system that not only removes mercury particles from the air during our S.M.A.R.T. procedures but also other bacteria in the air such as covid and mold spores. We also have 2 Medify Air filtration systems that run all the times to constantly purify our air in the office. We have one in the back of the house and in the reception area. Spring Smiles also work with Medlin Davis cleaners to have all our scrub jackets, and lab jackets professionally cleaned after every shift.
Intertek tested Medify’s MA-40 and MA-50 air purifiers against COVID-19 and SARS-Cov-2 and the results are in - we successfully removed 99.9% of harmful particles from the air.
