Application to Smile for a Lifetime


Smile for a lifetime is an Orthodontic Foundation established by Dr. Benjamin G. Burris. Through this non-profit foundation, the aim is to reach individuals who have not had the opportunity for orthodontic treatment due to financial reasons and/or other needs. The local Board of Directors of Smile for a Lifetime will choose the patients each quarter.


At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation it is our mission to create self confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this to better themselves and our community.
