Can't Afford Braces?

SCL serves kids ages 10-18 nationwide!

Smiles Change Lives (SCL) promotes increased self-esteem and improved oral health for children from low-income families in need of orthodontic treatment. Our goal is to help families, who cannot afford the full cost of braces, secure treatment for their children by connecting them with orthodontic providers willing to donate their services to deserving patients.

If you know a child who could benefit from this opportunity, please encourage them to Apply for Braces.

If you are an orthodontic provider who would like to help SCL kids in your community, please Become a Provider.

SCL success story



SCL participant 

“I had an overbite and a gap, all my friends teased me by calling me names.  With my new smile came a confidence that I know will open new doors for me. Without Smiles Change Lives, my family would not be able to afford the outstanding care that Dr. Clarence Red, at Red Orthodontics, and his staff are providing me.”
