"Changing Lives with a Smile " Every Valentine’s Day, Dr. Theodore Siegel of Big Smile Dental opens his doors to the less fortunate people in our neighborhood. They have been able to treat more than 5,500 people and provide over 2 MILLION dollars in free dentistry. This Valentine's Day, Miss Chicago 2018, Grace Etzkorn made an appearance at the event to show her support for what Dr. Siegel is doing for the City of Chicago. “Dentistry is a luxury that not everyone can afford” states Dr. Siegel. “I started this charity to help change the lives of those people that didn’t have enough money to take care of the things that you and I take for granted. But a funny thing happened along the way. It was my life that changed the most. And I feel truly blessed to be able to help others in need. I want to say thank you to the people that have supported me by giving a token of my sincere appreciation back to my community.”
Dr. Siegel who has been practicing dentistry in the Logan Square/Avondale area for 23 years wants to let everyone know that his entire staff insisted that they work this Valentine’s Day without pay. “My staff is my greatest asset, and I can’t tell you how proud I am of them for organizing and putting this benefit together.” Siegel stated.
