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

Across the United States, Community Smile Projects take place in areas where Smile Brands affiliated dental offices are located. Smile Brands affiliated providers and support staff come together to volunteer their skills and time, providing complimentary dental services to individuals in need from their local community. Throughout the year, teams provide full Smile Makeovers, which include extensive dental services for a selected recipient, and participate in a Day of Giving, where Smile Brands affiliated offices open their doors for one day to provide no cost dental services for those in need from their community.

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 to 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.
