Can't Afford Braces?

SCL serves kids ages 10-18 nationwide!

Smiles Change Lives (SCL) promotes increased self-esteem and improved oral health for children from low-income families in need of orthodontic treatment. Our goal is to help families, who cannot afford the full cost of braces, secure treatment for their children by connecting them with orthodontic providers willing to donate their services to deserving patients.

If you know a child who could benefit from this opportunity, please encourage them to Apply for Braces.

If you are an orthodontic provider who would like to help SCL kids in your community, please Become a Provider.

successful Smile story - Cody


“I was bullied and felt bad every time I smiled. I just wanted to be more confident. Thanks to Smiles Change Lives and Dr. Diane Johnson,  I already feel good about being around people. They have allowed me stop regretting things that I cannot change without help.”
