ASK Awarded BBB Charity Seal

Updated: Jul 17, 2020

A Smile for Kids is very proud to accept the Better Business Bureau's Charity Seal of Approval as a consequence of implementing and maintaining transparent non-profit business practices.

Because our community partners, sponsors, funders, families and orthodontists need full access to the way we conduct business in order to trust our stewardship, this accreditation is critical for A Smile for Kids.
