As leading Orthodontists in the area, Dr. King and Dr. Welch give back to the very individuals that have created his success! Their community involvement includes giving back to family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and businessmen.


G.R.I.N. – Getting Really Involved Now

This program is open to all local elementary schools. Jupiter Orthodontics has put into place an incentive program for students who have shown a concerted effort in either their academic and/or conduct performance.  This program is intended to assure students that they are believed in and can succeed with perseverance. Teachers set the standard of improvement, since they are in the best position to observe a child’s effort. The G.R.I.N. award is presented to each selected student by Dr. King & Dr. Welch, which includes a certificate of achievement, a trophy, a personal letter to the parent, a pizza party lunch at the school, and a special surprise.

School Partnerships

Dr. King & Dr. Welch have created many partnerships with local schools: sponsoring classrooms, rewards programs, teacher appreciation events and providing emergency supplies to every school nurse.  In 2018, Jupiter Orthodontics donated Kindness Benches to four elementary schools. The benches were presented to foster inclusion and acceptance of everyone. Being the son of two school teachers, we are always eager and happy to support students and teachers any way he can.

School Sports Programs

Each year local elementary and middle schools are reminded that FREE custom mouthguards will be provided for any student who participates in a sports program that requires one. No student will go without proper protection!


Food for Families

Each and every year, Dr. King & Dr. Welch partner up with all of our patients in collecting food for the Food For Families collection program. All food is donated to the needy, while children who bring items in are rewarded with extra wooden nickels to spend in our toy closet. “You want me to trade a can of beans for a sticky lizard? YOU BET!!”

Smile it Forward

Many families in this area know about Jupiter Orthodontics from family, friends, and school but there is more you should know. For years and without fanfare he has cared for the orthodontic needs of many in the community who are without means. Now there is an exciting program called SMILE IT FORWARD, which was launched early in 2013. This is a 1-for-10 program that provides completely FREE orthodontic treatment to families near or below the poverty level. Treatment includes exam, X-rays, braces, diagnostics, consultation, retainers, and follow-up care. The goal is to provide help for children in real need. Simply print out the contract and income guidelines below to complete, take a head shot photo (5 X 7) with full smile and teeth showing, then email or mail to my office. (The 5 x 7 photo is a MUST.) Documents for proof of income can be handled by the family directly with our office.

Candy Buy Back Program

Dr. King & Dr. Welch buy back Halloween candy from all of our patients every year after Halloween. For every pound of candy collected, he donates one dollar to their school and the child earns a dollar for taking care of their teeth.


This amazing organization is dedicated to helping young girls grow into productive and motivated adults. There are more than 15,000 Girl Scouts in South East Florida alone. The organization behind the girls welcomes community leaders to share information, knowledge, and expertise which will edify these eager young ones. Dr. King welcomes the opportunity and regularly provides educational instruction right here in his office. Scouts are welcomed and dress the part. With their dental jackets and gloves, they learn about our iTero digital scanner and the 3D model of their teeth it generates. Among many other things, they get to see what is in all those mysterious drawers that are in an orthodontic office. Their lesson is simple: There is no room for fear in THIS orthodontic office.

Dr. King & Dr. Welch also purchases Girl Scout Cookies from every Jupiter troop that comes to the office.


Florida Cleft Palate

Dr. King is a member of the Florida Cleft Palate Association. His participation provides the rewarding privilege of helping young ones with very special needs to have a beautiful smile while building self-assurance and making friends along the way.

Contributions to the Underprivileged

Through various avenues, he is able to assist orthodontic treatment for underprivileged ones in need. This again is based on his unending determination to give back to those around him.
