As a Richmond-based business, it’s important for us to give back to the community we serve, both monetarily and with our time. We encourage you to check out these organizations below and also consider donating or volunteering.

We’ve Supported

Youth Life Foundation of Richmond

Both Dr. Bates and Taylor, his wife, have volunteered as mentors and Taylor has served as board chair with YLFR. This awesome organization makes a long-term investment in kids from at-risk communities. YLFR was a driving factor for the Bateses to move to Northside, specifically Brookland Park, when they were first married. They have been working with their mentees for six years and receive great joy seeing them change from children to young adults. Bates Orthodontics supports YLFR financially through sponsoring their annual golf tournament and summer program.
