Working with A Smile for Kids (ASK) Non-profit

If you are interested in becoming a partnering orthodontist for the ASK non-profit program, this is what you should know:

  • ASK qualifies all ASK recipients through a rigorous application process.

  • ASK partnering providers (you) decide how many  ASK patients they will treat.

  • Providers share the initial orthodontic consultation results with the ASK screening committee,

  • Providers are paid a discounted flat fee for orthodontic treatment, in full, after the initial banding appointment.

  • ASK provides compliance service for both the ASK patient & the provider.

  • ASK patients are required to complete monthly volunteer service throughout their entire orthodontic treatment.

  • ASK patients are required to keep grades in all classes at a "C" or higher. This means that they are committed to treatment.

  • ASK assists with care coordination and funding for additional dental services (extractions, oral surgery, etc) that are necessary for the patients to have a successful orthodontic outcome.
