Tulloch partners with Unique Smiles to provide free dental services for Covenant House Academy Kids

Posted Oct 26, 2012

Detroit, MI; October 3, 2013:    Detroit Lions’ starting linebacker Stephen Tulloch has partnered with Dr. Michael Herringshaw, owner of Unique Smiles Dental Care, to provide 55 kids from the Covenant House Academies free dental services.  The dental services will be provided on November 6, 2012 at 2:00 pm at Unique Smiles Dental (28315 Hoover Road Warren, MI  48093).

All Operation 55 participants will also receive autographs, foundation backpacks, toothbrushes, mouthwash, toothpaste and other teeth cleaning products from Tulloch and Dr. Herringshaw.

Tulloch has been making a huge impact in the community over the past two seasons by reaching out to multiple organizations and groups who support underprivileged kids and families.  

“I am very excited that Dr. Herringshaw was willing to partner with me to make this possible again and give the kids from Covenant House these vital services,” said Tulloch. “We’ve tried to reach out to a different local organization each month during the season and extend help when needed. Providing dental services is something not many people are able to do, so this should be a great day that I enjoy being part of and I look forward to meeting the kids.”

The Stephen Tulloch Foundation was launched in 2009 and is dedicated towards helping underprivileged youth achieve success and have the same opportunities as other children.  Tulloch’s goal is to supply these children with the necessary tools to build self-esteem, achieve goals and unlock their potential.
