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.

SCL success story - Ali



Ali, SCL participant 


"Your organization means so much to our family. With the help of SCL and Dr. Leslie McClimans, at McClimans Orthdontics, the change in Ali has been steady, both with her appearance on the outside, and her confidence on the inside. Her smile now matches the rest of her, beautiful! She recently graduated with honors, receiving a Presidential scholarship. Being a part of your program has has been the biggest blessing, and a humbling experience. We can’t thank you enough."
