Bubble Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics believes in helping the community, stewardship and giving back. We have committed 10% of our profits to these local charities.
New England Aquarium and Atlantic White Shark Conservancy were chosen because our founder, Dr. Anna Berik, has been passionate about our oceans and marine life since she was a child. She strongly believes in stewardship and education and the quote by Baba Dioum sums it up; “In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught”.
The other charity that was chosen is Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. They were chosen because Dr. Berik believes that families and children affected by autism need help and support in their daily lives.

Atlantic White Shark Conservancy
