Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support our second annual Styles For Smiles during MN Fashion Week!
We are thrilled to announce that with your help we raised enough funds for sustainability at orphanages in SE Asia and Haiti for 2011. We are overjoyed and grateful for all the support!
For a recap of the event, please take a look at Susan Marie Dordal’s blog recap:



PHS will be working in Lamardelle, Haiti at the end of next month, May 2011. We will be working with Fondation Enfant Jesus starting an oral health program with their school which educates over 550 children in the local community. We will provide oral health education, dental supplies, and fluoride treatments. We will also follow up with the orphaned children we worked with last December 2010 in FEJ’s Lamardelle creche.

You can support our mission by donating toothburshes, floss and toothpaste. For more inquiries on how you can help please email by May 20th 2011. Thank you for your support!


Project Healthy Smile, KOKOON, Local Motion, SBG DesignsM.Bridget Designs have come together to create a fabulous fashion event for a wonderful cause during MN Spring Fashion Week.

Styles For Smiles Spring 2011 will feature a Runway Show showcasing colorful spring couture by KOKOON & Local Motion Boutique, Wine, Hors d’oeuvres, an Interactive Photo Booth with photography by Serah Sauser, music by DJ Fatty and Mini-Makeovers from Brett Dorrian Artistry Studios – all for FREE.

It will also be a rare private shopping experience as KOKOON Design Studio becomes a modern pop up boutique. Guests can view fresh spring looks on the lovely Ignite models and purchase them right then and there, along with the perfect jewelry pieces from local designers SBG Designs & M.Bridget Designs.

And go home with a goodie-stocked gift bag. Much more fun than shopping at a mall, and all for a great cause: A portion of the proceeds from the clothing and jewelry sales will directly benefit Project Healthy Smile, a Minneapolis based non-profit working to bring oral health education and dental supplies to impoverished and underprivileged children globally.

There will also be a raffle and silent auction to raise money for Project Healthy Smile.

Doors open at 1pm

Runway Show at 2pm

Shopping available until 4pm

PHS had a successful mission in Haiti! We provided oral health education and dental supplies to a crèche in Lamardelle and Kenskoff. We look forward to continuing to work together to make sure the children stay compliant with oral health. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our new Haitian friends for  their generous hospitality and an unforgettable experience.
