Smile for a Lifetime

Who We Are

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to acquire assistance.

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.

Words from Dr. Wilson: “Our Mission Statement above pretty much sums up everything we are trying to do with our foundation, and it is our way of giving back to the community that has been so gracious to us! It is our goal every year to give 10 orthodontic scholarships to the children in our local community to help create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change their lives in a dramatic way. It is our hope that this gift of a smile will, in turn, allow them to better themselves and our local community.”

Our Mission

At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation it is our mission to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community.
