Hope Restore 2014


Hope Restore 2014 kicked off this past weekend! We have 17 students this year from the University of Tennessee Dental School. They receive advanced training through hands-on experience with us, and also give back to the community by providing care to those who would ordinarily not have access to treatment.


We are thrilled to have Papa Joe as one of our Hope Restore patients this year. Joe is an author and speaker who advocates for at-risk and fatherless children. Affectionately known as “Papa Joe”, he is the CEO and founder of Elijah’s Heart, a charitable and educational nonprofit that’s served thousands of children and families over the years. Papa Joe holds the rare honor of having his life story inspire a major motion picture, Unconditional. He is passionate about impacting communities with an unstoppable move of love in action. And we are so blessed to be able to pour back into his life with the provision of dental treatment!
