Dr. Auster believes strongly that giving back is its own reward, and he has volunteered regularly over his thirty-plus year career serving Rockland Country and the surrounding communities. In early May 2015, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recognized Dr. Auster’s outstanding volunteer work and awarded him the 2015 Humanitarian of the Year Award.
The Humanitarian of the Year Award is given only to the most exemplary individuals in the AACD who dedicate their time and resources to helping others. In addition to Dr. Auster’s work on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the AACD Affiliates Committee, and his articles in Dentistry Today, Dr. Auster and the team at Cosmetic Dentistry Associates have partnered with Smiles For Life, the Special Olympics, 1000 Smiles, and Give Back a Smile.
Every March through June, Dr. Auster’s team donates 100% of the proceeds from tooth whitening to the Smiles For Life charity. Since 2007, they have helped raise over $27,000 that will go towards helping underprivileged, disabled, or seriously ill children in Rockland County, NY, and around the globe. For the past 8 years, Dr. Auster has traveled to Jamaica to work with 1000 Smiles, providing dental checkups, supplies, and services to over 15,000 needy Jamaican children and families. He also provides free dental services to help revitalize the smiles of victims of domestic violence through Give Back A Smile, and dental screenings to Special Olympics athletes.
Congratulations, Dr. Auster! Here’s to many, many more years of giving back to Rockland County, and around the world! Cosmetic Dentistry Associates is proud to continue Dr. Peter Auster’s tradition of premier quality, personalized cosmetic dentistry and charitable giving.
