Local doctor surprises local students with Christmas gifts


One doctor known for bringing pearly smiles to kids faces, is making smiles even brighter today with the gift of giving.

Orthodontist Mike Thurman teamed up with Stella Hills Elementary School, where they asked each teacher to pick a few kids in their class who may not receive a gift this year. 

The teachers were told to ask the kids what gifts they would want. Dr. Thurman and his team went out to buy those gifts.

17 News caught up with the doctor while the team was wrapping gifts at the office earlier this week. 

Today, the “Smile Squad” will headed over to Stella Hills to surprise the 100 students with their new toys.
