Dental Deeds & Services: healing beyond teeth
1. Revlon Run/Walk For Women
On May 8th, 2010, my office walked for the 8th year in a row for a cure for breast cancer. With my wife as a 8 – year cancer survivor, we are thrilled that our group raised over $50,000 for this worthwhile cause. Thank you all for your donations and participation.

2. A Success Story
Founded by Dr. Grossman in 1993, this 501C(3) non profit program provides free dental care to the homeless. Presently, there are nearly three dozen dental offices participating in LA. Most of the patients are referred by the Venice Family Clinic, where their dental needs and the necessity for treatment in a private practice setting are assessed.
Since its inception, Homeless Not Toothless has provided over $2 Million in service for this population. The Dentists who volunteer their time and either pay for laboratory expenses themselves or work with labs who donate dental work as their way of contributing to this cause. In addition, the dentists and staff who work with the homeless patients do so without any financial compensation and with only the kindest and most generous of hearts.
Requests for future information and contributions to expand this program and provide supplies can be sent to:

Homeless Not Toothless is thrilled to announce the expansion of our program, to children!
Along with actress Sharon Stone, we are committed to building a dental and medical clinic for the 28,000 children in foster care!
This undeserved group, that has no political voice, needs our help. There is a state mandate that requires these children to have yearly medical and dental exams for enterence to school, yet there is no funding to support this.
Thus far we have a building and completed the medical component of the clinic! Join us on Sept 10, 2009 to raise the needed funds for the dental facility or donate if you can not join us.
