Community Involvement

Dr. Sappington supports the community in numerous ways. The practice is a Partner in Education for Buchholz High School, Kanapaha Middle School, Lawton Chiles Elementary School, and Kimball Wiles Elementary School. Artwork selected by the art teachers at Chiles and Wiles Elementary Schools hang in the reception room of the Haile Plantation Village Center office. New selections are made quarterly to give many young artists the opportunity to display their talents.

The practice supports athletic, instrumental, dance and foreign language programs at Buchholz, Eastside, Gainesville, Fort White, Hawthorne, Oak Hall, St. Francis Catholic and Santa Fe High Schools. Local middle and elementary schools, including Kanapaha, Ft. Clarke, Lincoln, Oak Hall, St. Patrick’s, Richardson, High Springs Community School, P.K. Yonge and Cornerstone Academy benefit from the practice's support.

Dr. Sappington volunteers for Care to Share which allows the local community in need to receive complimentary dentistry.

Sappington Orthodontics supports the University of Florida’s pre-dental and athletic programs, local 4H clubs, youth fairs, boys, and girls clubs and numerous health-related charities. In addition, Dr. Sappington provides mentorship opportunities to Santa Fe College dental assistant interns, and University of Florida and Santa Fe pre-dental students.
