Smile for a Lifetime
WHO WE ARE
Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to acquire assistance. Launched in 2008, the Foundation reaches individuals with orthodontic needs who are facing financial challenges and other special situations. The Foundation sponsors orthodontic care for hundreds of patients each year. Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the United States. Each chapter has its own local Board of Directors that chooses patients for treatment.
It is our mission to create self confidence, inspire hope and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a beautiful smile can do all of this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community.
Interested candidates must submit a Smile for a Lifetime Foundation application. It is available at the bottom of this page. The application outlines the qualifications for consideration as a Foundation patient.
