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

Days of Giving
Volunteers from across a Smile Brands market join together at a central office to host a day-long free dental clinic to provide basic dental services for pre-qualified individuals in need from their local community. Patients are referred to a Day of Giving through the Foundation’s partnerships with nonprofit organizations in the local community. To create a more dignified experience for a Day of Giving patient, all patients schedule their appointment in advance to ensure that they will be seen and that they won’t have to wait hours in long lines outside the office. Get Involved!

Smile Makeovers
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.

Implanting Inspiration
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 Cambodia, Ghana, Laos, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Thailand. Each year, Smile Brands affiliated providers and support staff visit our International Outposts to provide free dental services for people in need. On a continuing basis, the Smiles for Everyone Foundation and representatives for each country, known as International Ambassadors, support ongoing dental outreaches through grants, strategic guidance, and dental mentorships.
