Dr. Karent Sierra, known as a “dentist to the stars” and TV personality has accomplished many things during the tenure of her career. She has become one of the most recognizable faces in South Florida as a dentist and spokesperson to a potpourri of brands. But to many, she’s an ambassador for many charitable organizations including her own: Sharing Smiles. The Sharing Smiles Foundation will hold the first of a series of quarterly initiatives “Sharing Smiles Days” on Friday, May 11, 2012. A group of children will be transported to the office of Dr. Sierra for the day where a team of dentists under her direction will attend to their dental needs. From first time examinations, to checkups to X-rays and fillings, they will put their magic to use and help these kids smile showing them care, and one on one attention. The first Sharing Smiles Day will take place at the office of Dr. Karent Sierra and will be collaboration with Children’s Home Society of South Florida. Children’s Home Society of Florida, Southeastern Division, serves more than 2,000 children and families in Miami-Dade County each month.
