Say Hello to our new mascot!

Since 2005, the polar bear has been in our logo because it’s associated with characteristics like longevity, dedication, and the willingness to take on any task no matter how tough. Moreover, the polar bear is an iconic symbol of Alaska, and we want to become an iconic symbol in this community and in your family.

Starting today, this plushy polar bear will be in our waiting room waiting to greet patients as they come in for a visit.

Now, you can give this little polar bear a name.

Is it a boy or a girl? We don’t know! We’re hoping your name suggestion will decide.

Think of names that express “bright”, “integrity”, “experienced”, “steadfast”, “dedication”.

We will be collecting name ideas beginning Tuesday, September 18, 2018, until 12:01 AM, Monday, September 24, 2018. Winners will be chosen on the following Monday by Alaska Smiles team, and announced the day after on Tuesday.

To submit a name idea, visit our Facebook Page. Whoever submits the winning name will receive a $25.00 gift card to Target.
