While hosting dental clinics at orphanages and community centers in Guatemala, Smile Squared’s founders realized that many of the children had preventable dental issues, and some didn’t even have access to a toothbrush. For every toothbrush sold, the company now donates a toothbrush (made of sustainable, biodegradable bamboo) to a child in need. Smile Squared has donated toothbrushes to children in all 50 states, as well as 24 other countries.
One of Atlanta's charms is the incredible diversity of its neighborhoods. The same holds true for the suburbs and exurb communities that surround this booming Southern metropolis. From Alpharetta north of the city to Serenbe south of Atlanta, there are a remarkable variety of experiences to have, from suburban to rural to everything in between. Visitors looking for a little respite from a city-center experience but the experiential pleasures of a dense, busy hub of restaurants, shops and a new hotel can stay in the 86-acre Avalon community in Alpharetta, a relatively new 86-acre development that functions as a self-contained city 30 miles north of Midtown Atlanta. Use it as your home base as you venture out each day to activities or events in the city, or use it as a good launching point for exploring the Georgia or North Carolina mountains if a jaunt into the beautiful regional landscape is more your speed.
