Smile for a Lifetime

Posted On: December 1, 2016

Orthodontics can seem expensive, especially if finances are extremely tight for a family. Thankfully, there are organizations such as Smile for a Lifetime that can help. According to their website, the “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.” There are over 37 orthodontic practices involved with this program. Each chapter has a local board that determines who is awarded the scholarship in their community. If you’re interested in finding an orthodontist in your area, visit the Smile for a Lifetime website, Typically a candidate will need to fill out an application, provide a photo of themselves as well as a few letters of reference. Don’t let financial restrictions keep your child from obtaining the smile that they deserve.
