Welcome to Dawson

Smiles for Life

Each year Callander Bay Dental is proud to participate in the annual Smiles for Life Campaign.  The campaign runs from March 1 until June 30, and 100% of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures done at Callander Bay Dental are contributed directly to our partner charity. As an additional incentive, each tooth whitening patient enjoys their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. Patients love the unique opportunity to improve the lives of families in our community while also enhancing their own smile. Want to learn more about our next Smiles for Life campaign? Give us a call! We’d love to tell you more about it.
