Communications Director Rachel Fortin says the event celebrates the clinic’s history of giving back. 

“Dr. Younes and his team have a positive reputation locally, especially because of all the charity events and many donations,” said Fortin. “What better way to celebrate than to hold an event that continues that tradition?” 

The event is free to attend. Hope to see you there!

From Humble Beginnings

Dr. Younes started the clinic from its Trenton location in 2001. After many renovations and an expansion to the Trenton building, You Make Me Smile opened the Belleville location in 2018. Some patients from those early days are still with You Make Me Smile today. 

From the start, Dr. Younes and the You Make Me Smile dental clinic have focused on providing assistance and resources for the communities they serve. 

“The most important thing for us is the health and wellness of our community as well as our patients,” said Fortin. “Our team loves to give back to the community.”

The clinic has provided sponsorships, held free dental service events for the community (Dentistry from the Heart), and gave generous donations to many local organizations throughout its 20-year history. 

Dr. Younes and the You Make Me Smile team are taking all precautions related to preventing Covid-19, and they are following all local, provincial, and federal guidelines in planning this event.
