A Smile For Kids
"Providing equitable access to orthodontic care to improve the self-confidence, health and resilience of underserved youth throughout Oregon"
MISSION & HISTORY
A Smile for Kids (ASK) strives to improve the quality of life for kids in our communities through its mission of “Providing equitable access to orthodontic care to improve the self-confidence, health and resilience of underserved youth throughout Oregon." A Smile For Kids has a specific focus on identifying and helping those kids that are suffering from ridicule and low self-esteem due to severely crooked teeth.
While many consider orthodontic treatment, or “braces”, a cosmetic procedure, the daily reality for children with badly misaligned teeth and jaws is severe. Suffering from these conditions can cause poor dental health, oral disease, constant physical pain, poor school attendance, and the absence of positive social-peer relationships.
A Smile For Kids removes the obstacle of crooked teeth while requiring a high standard of grade performance and monthly community service; resulting in improved educational and job opportunities, and a current graduation rate of 94% (2014-2018) for kids completing the program in Oregon.
