FALLBROOK – Before Gunnar Streich graduated from Bonsall High School this past June, he needed to do a senior project that included planning, executing, showing profitability and all for a charity.

Streich had an unfortunate accident last year that led to his choice of Fallbrook Smiles Project, a local nonprofit.

Streich was at an airsoft park at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton for Memorial Day 2018 and was not wearing his mouth safety gear when he had his two front teeth shot out. He had already been through orthodontic treatment and now he needed a root canal and teeth bonding.

While he was visiting his dentist, Dr. Clayton Cooke, Streich talked about how to turn the accident into his senior project. The dental hygienist let him know about Fallbrook Smiles Project.

He came up with a plan and created a T-shirt to be sold, and the profits were donated to Fallbrook Smiles Project.

The dental branch of this nonprofit performs dental screenings, fluoride application and restoration work as well as education to the local elementary schools and community.

Fallbrook Smiles Project is also funded in part by the Fallbrook Regional Health District.
