Congratulations to Dr. Diane Ray of State College Orthodontics in State College, PA, for being chosen as SCL’s Orthodontic Provider of the Week! We thank Dr. Ray and her entire team for their generosity, dedication, and outstanding service they provide to our SCL program participants!
When Dr. Ray joined the SCL family in 2014, there were no children in her area of State College, PA who had applied for braces through the SCL program. Knowing she had treated kids who could possibly qualify, Dr. Ray and her team took matters into their own hands. So far in 2015, State College Orthodontics has recruited and treated six children, donating over $36,000 in treatment!
