Smile For A Lifetime
About Smile for a Lifetime Foundation
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 133 chapters throughout the US and now 3 in Canada. Dr Luis is one of the three chapters in Canada (the other chapters are in Toronto and Montreal). Each chapter has its own local Board of Directors who chooses patients to be treated by the Foundation.
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.
