Welcome to Smile for a Lifetime!

Our mission to help disadvantaged children and young adults who are in need of orthodontic care. 

WHAT WE DO

Did you know that kids with crooked and buck teeth are the number one target for bullies? For the tens of thousands of families in the United States and Canada that cannot afford orthodontic treatment, this heart-breaking reality adds incredible stress.  

Smile for a Lifetime is a charitable, nonprofit organization that matches disadvantaged kids in need of orthodontic treatment with dental professionals eager to provide pro bono care. Services provided run the gamut from standard orthodontic care to oral surgery and other necessary procedures. 

We prioritize our services for low-income families and/or individuals in special situations, such as foster care or other out-of-home placements. Many of these youth are at risk for unfavorable health, academic, and social outcomes because of these challenges, and they are particularly vulnerable when they do not have the positive self-esteem and confidence that come with good oral health. It is our mission to inspire hope in these youth and change their lives in a dramatic way.
