GIVING BACK SMILES
Delivering smiles in your community and around the world
Dental cavities are the most common and most preventable disease across the globe.
In the United States, as many as 4.6 million children are unable to get dental care
In developing countries, the dentist to population ratio is as high as 1:1,000,000
COMMUNITY SMILE PROJECTS
Smile Brands affiliated providers and support staff provide extensive dental services for select individuals in need from their local community. These patients are often identified at a Day of Giving as someone needing services that cannot be completed at a Day of Giving, including root canals, dentures and implants. They may also be a returning patient who simply cannot afford extensive care and has no insurance to cover it. A provider will decide to offer these services pro-bono to a patient, and the patient will receive complete restorative services – a full Smile Makeover.
In partnership with Smile Brands Inc., Implant Direct and DDS Lab, select patients in need receive dental implants free of charge.
INTERNATIONAL SMILE PROJECTS
The Smiles for Everyone Foundation currently supports International Smile Projects in Ghana, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, the Philippines and Thailand. We provide needed equipment, supplies and funding to support local volunteers as well as clinical training and best practice sharing. Smile Brands affiliated providers and support staff visit our International Outposts to assist in the delivery of free dental services for people in need.
