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


Smiles Change Lives participant

"As the saying goes; 'Don’t judge a book by its cover.' The reality is, the world is opposite of that. I have a high narrow pallet and buck teeth, but because of braces, my new smile will open up doors for me in the future! Thank you Dr. Casey O’Conner, for treating me like any other patient. Without you and smiles Change Lives, I never would have had this opportunity!”
- Karlie, an SCL program participant
