Exciting Changes Coming To Smiles Change Lives In 2017

Can you believe that 2016 is over? It sure went by fast! It was an exciting year of growth and changes, and we aren’t stopping. There are several exciting changes here at Smiles Change Lives that will go into effect on January 1, 2017.

We are so excited to introduce these changes:

  • First, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary of helping kids get braces. Look for posts on how we’ll celebrate and join with us in the 10,000+ lives that have been changed since 1997.
  • We will begin accepting applicants aged 7 to 18. This will enable us to help younger kids who have been identified by an oral healthcare provider as being in need of interceptive treatment.
  • While volunteers have always played a key role in our success, they’ve always had to live in the Kansas City area where we are headquartered. With the technology now available, we will begin to recruit and work with virtual volunteers all around the US.
  • Beginning January 1, 2017, those accepted into the program will have an increase in their required financial investment from $600 to $650. (*Any complete applications received in our office by December 31, 2016 will remain at $600.)

2016 turns over to 2017
