I have supported this charity from the beginning. Between it’s overarching commitment, engagement of community, level of care, and the fact that they put over 90% of all money raised back into raising the pride and dignity of veterans, the homeless,
and children in foster care one smile at a time, makes me proud to contribute and be part of this tribe! This organization should be everywhere!

There is truly nothing more rewarding than knowing you are helping out someone who who has given back to their country and also to those who do not have the means to help themselves. This organization is top notch and I will never hesitate to continue donating to their cause.

I met the founder Dr. Jay of this nonprofit years ago as he was in the process of launching it. Seeing how this was created and what it provides for not just the vets / homeless, but the environment that’s all around it. I’ve donated before and will continue to do so. What a unique and amazing thing to do for people. Thank you to the American Legion for supporting this non profit as well!

I worked at Homeless Not Toothless as a dental volunteer from UCLA and had a very meaningful experience providing service for the LA homeless population. They treat all the patients with dignity and respect and provide an exceptional service that is desperately needed in LA.

Homeless Not Toothless is a nonprofit that I have had the privilege to be heavily involved with for several months now. Dr. Jay Grossman is an extraordinary individual committed to leaving this planet better off than he found it. Dr. Grossman’s commitment to providing dental care to the less fortunate is remarkable. As a student pursuing a career in dentistry, the philanthropic mindset of Dr. Grossman is one that I hope to one day achieve as a future health care provider. Cheers to 27 years & the treatment of over 60,000 patients.

As a volunteer at homeless not toothless I get to see the behind the scenes action at the office. I can honestly say that Dr.Grossman enjoys giving back to the community. He goes above and beyond to make the patients feel comfortable by providing noise cancelling headphones, chapstick and explaining any procedure thoroughly. He ensures that the patient’s time is respected by minimizing waiting room times and makes sure that all of the patients’ dental needs are met. The entire office works as a team and the best part is that everyone is full of energy and empathy which provides a welcoming and trusting environment.
