REACHING OUT INTO OUR COMMUNITY

Reach Orthodontics is honored to partner with several outstanding organizations to help the under-served, both locally and globally.

“Smiles are one of God’s gifts. Smiles open doors. Smiles win hearts. Smiles brighten days. Smiles show confidence. If one has confidence in their smile, they have confidence in life. With Reach Orthodontics, we will make a difference for your smile, and make a difference for others too.” – Dr. Hatcher

OUR PARTNERS

Reach Orthodontics is the fulfillment of an idea God placed on Dr. Hatcher’s heart. Much like TOMS® Shoes, Dr. Hatcher is leveraging something  people purchase every day to make a difference in the lives of the under-served, locally and around the world.

In addition to supporting the Reach Partners with donations generated in the practice, Dr. Hatcher wants to champion the wonderful work of these Partners to those in our circle of influence.  Our hope is by joining our circle of influence with the circles of influence of our Partners, more and more people will become aware of these organizations and get behind how they are helping in the world.  These synergies can be very helpful for each of us to reach our goals.
