Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization comprised of local chapters throughout the country that provides quality orthodontic treatment for patients who may not have the opportunity to achieve a beautiful, straight smile without financial assistance.
The Smile for Life Foundation helps equip orthodontists with the resources necessary to help develop a local Board of Directors that will specifically select individuals for orthodontic treatment.
At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation, it is our mission to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our communities in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and their community.
This program is designed to award individuals who cannot afford braces and have no insurance to help with the cost of braces. If you have medicaid, chips, or any other insurance coverage, you may not qualify for Smile for a Lifetime. Medicaid and Chips insurance plans may cover orthodontics, so please schedule a consultation with a medicaid and chips provider to receive your benefits for orthodontic treatment if you have them. You must meet income eligibility requirements to apply. Community service must be done through our office over the course of treatment, meaning every month that the patient is in treatment, approved community service hours must be completed.
