For each random act of kindness tweet that includes a smile :-) and tags @DentalPlansCom, DentalPlans.com will donate $1 to Operation Smile, for up to $500.

In addition, DentalPlans.com will celebrate National Children's Dental Health Month by matching up to $1,000 in donations made at its Operation Smile fundraising page in February.
