HALO:

Helping and Leading Others

The HALO Team

Dr. Brady Smith, DDS

Founder & President of HALO;
General of the Tooth Fairy Army

The Founder of The HALO Dental Network and fearless leader of the Tooth Fairy Army, Dr. Brady Smith, DDS, received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University – Idaho. Upon graduating from The University of Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, Dr. Brady and his lovely wife relocated to Colorado, where Brady began his career in dentistry.

Five years later, the Spokane native returned to his home state of Washington, where he established his Comfort Dental practice in Camas. Although his practice was thriving, he wanted more. Inspired to give back, Brady launched the popular DRILLED with Dr. Brady, a podcast to help educate and demystify dentistry. Now, Dr. Brady is growing The HALO Dental Network, a global coalition of dental professionals willing to donate their services to their local communities. Not only does he lead the HALO effort, but he donates his time and services to the dentally underserved, changing countless smiles and lives. 

Now a father of four, Dr. Brady enjoys playing basketball with his sons between saving smiles. He also plays guitar in a local cover band called The Playlist.

 

Lowell-George Granath

Founding Partner &
Executive Director

Lowell-George Granath, HALO’s Executive Director and on-call Renaissance Man, serves as the Maverick of the Tooth Fairy Army. From a young age, Lowell-George proved that music was not only in his name, but in his blood. Granath dedicated himself to writing, recording and performing music across the globe. He soon discovered yet another talent – bare editing and producing social media content.

In 2018, Granath met Dr. Brady during an exam at Comfort Dental. After discussing Lowell’s dental situation, the conversation pivoted to Brady and Lowell’s shared love of music, guitars and general buffoonery. After a few more appointments and randomly bumping into each other at various music stores, Brady brought Lowell on as co-host of DRILLED with Dr. Brady, an idea that evolved into HALO to develop a nonprofit on a grander scale.

As an Alaskan native, Lowell-George still enjoys adventuring outdoors. His next project is building his own production studio on his land in Washington. And, of course, he is still making beautiful music and working on various creative projects.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.
