About Us

Mission Statement

At the 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.

What We Do

Smile for a Lifetime is an international program that provides orthodontic care to disadvantaged children and young adults who normally would not be able to afford treatment. Smile for a Lifetime does not charge for the orthodontic treatment – participating orthodontists and orthodontic manufacturing companies provide FREE services, including the cost of one set of retainers. The only cost a family will incur is an initial $500 application fee to help cover the cost of the program. 

Contact Us

Smile for a Lifetime has participating orthodontists across the United States and Canada. If you are interested in applying for assistance, please click on the Apply for Braces icon above and S4L will begin the search for a provider in your area.
