Mission Statement

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

What We Do

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides each year free orthodontic care to hundreds of young individuals with a significant need for such care but who do not have access to it because of financial challenges and/or special situations.

Founded in 2008, Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the US and Canada. Each local chapter has its own Board of Directors which chooses the candidates to be treated. The Greater Montreal Chapter was established in 2012 and is currently the only chapter in Quebec.
