Niagara Falls, N.Y. -- For the ninth consecutive year Dr. Stuart Weinstein and Advanced Dental Center in Niagara Falls is partnering with the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station to assist the families of our local servicemen and women through Operation Whiter-Brighter.

Mary Grace Scarpelli has developed this initiative phenomenally well and her efforts resulted in a $3600.00 donation. Mary Grace understands the needs of military families, as she is the mother and wife of active and retired Air Force Reserve members.

Operation Whiter-Brighter is a program which donates all proceeds from professional teeth whitenings, including labor to the Friends of Family Support Association (FFSA).

FFSA supports the efforts, programs, and mission of Niagara FallsĀ ARS Airmen and Family Readiness Centers.

Additionally, FFSA serves as a forum for interested community members to contribute to social, recreational, and humanitarian initiatives building healthy, resilient, military families.

In 2014, FFSA provided record levels of support to Airmen and their families. The generosity of Dr. Stuart Weinstein and his team at Advanced Dental Center is a testament of the community support toward members of the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.
