Smiles Change Lives … Helping Families with the Cost of Braces in Spokane, WA & Changing Lives One Smile at a Time!

cost of braces in las vegas nv

Overview:
Smiles Change Lives (SCL) is a non-profit organization that provides access to orthodontic treatment for qualified children from families that cannot afford the full cost of braces in Spokane, WA. Based in Kansas City, MO, the program has treated more than 14,000 children since 1997, making it the nation’s leader in providing access to orthodontic care for qualified youth.

Braces are not cheap; orthodontic treatment can cost as much as $8,000 without insurance. Smiles Change Lives is committed to finding inexpensive and affordable options for working families. Currently, over 750 generous orthodontic providers are partnered with Smiles Change Lives, donating their time and efforts to give children affordable braces at a low-cost.

Several partnering orthodontists in Spokane, WA are donating services to qualified and motivated kids in need of braces. They have a limited number of openings available.

Children applying for our orthodontic program must meet the qualifications noted below and be motivated to follow the assigned orthodontist’s treatment plan, which averages between 20 and 36 months.

Qualifications:

  • Be 7-18 years of age;
  • Have “good” oral hygiene and no unfilled cavities;
  • Have a moderate to severe need for braces;
  • Not be wearing braces currently;
  • Family must meet the SCL financial guidelines (varies by geographic location); and
  • Be willing to pay the non-refundable $30 (USD) application fee and then once the child has been accepted and matched with a provider willing to treat, the non-refundable $650 (USD) required financial investment (per child) .

[note: The required financial investment is your investment in your child’s beautiful new smile as well as a pledge of you and your child’s commitment to the time and effort required throughout this process. SCL uses these funds to recruit more doctors willing to treat more children. In this way, each family truly “pays it forward”; by helping their own child, they are making it possible for the next child to be treated as well.]

Instructions:

If your child meets these initial qualifications, the next step is to determine if you meet our financial guidelines.
