Lakeland Dentistry recently contributed $20,000 to SGMC Health Lanier through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program.   

This generous donation reveals a commitment beyond the dental chair. By supporting SGMC Health Lanier, Lakeland Dentistry contributes to the overall health and wellness of Lanier County residents. Past Georgia HEART gifts have allowed SGMC Health Lanier to make necessary improvements to facilities, fund special projects, and sponsor community events.  

“We are so thankful for community partners like Lakeland Dentistry whose generosity enables SGMC Health to provide critical access to healthcare in rural Georgia,” shared Hilary Gibbs, SGMC Health Vice President and Chief Development Officer.  

The Georgia HEART Hospital Program allows organizations and individual taxpayers to donate directly to SGMC Health’s rural campuses for a 100% state tax credit. This essential support has a profound impact on rural hospitals. Georgia HEART is currently accepting applications for 2024 tax credits. To learn more about this unique tax credit opportunity, visit
