Smile for A Lifetime

Smile for a Lifetime is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not have the opportunity to acquire assistance.  Through this non-profit foundation, we strive to reach individuals who do not have the opportunity to acquire assistance.

The mission of S4L is to create self-confidence, inspire hope and change the lives of children in their communities in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for deserving, underserved individuals who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and their community. During treatment, many S4L local chapters also encourage scholarship recipients to participate in community service through a “pay it forward” program inspiring young people to participate in lifelong giving.

Launched in 2008, Smile for a Lifetime Foundation aims to reach individuals with financial challenges, special situations, and orthodontic needs. The Foundation sponsors the orthodontic care of hundreds of patients each year.

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the US.  Each chapter has its own local Board of Directors who choose patients to be treated by the Foundation.

All interested patients must be residents of your local chapters services area in order to apply. The scholarship program is competitive, not all applicants will receive a scholarship. Each application will be reviewed and awarded by a local board of directors. Scholarships are awarded once a year. In order to become a candidate, interested patients must complete a Smile For A Lifetime application.
