Smiles Change Lives Is Easy And Rewarding!

  • No fees, fundraising, boards or chapters to establish.
  • SCL does everything possible to ensure your donated time, skills, and practice resources are spent on qualified, motivated children.
  • You don’t have to handle applications or determine who is qualified; refer your pro bono patients to us, and we will screen them so that you never have to say “no” or ask tough questions. We take care of that for you to ensure you always have a positive experience treating SCL patients.
  • On the rare occasion that a child/family is not compliant, you can simply contact SCL, and we will contact the family to resolve the issue.

How Does The Process Work?

  • Sign and submit your Provider Agreement, along with a copy of your license and insurance.
  • Send us a list of your referring dentists so we can notify them of your participation in the program.
  • Once you have submitted all of the required paperwork, you can expect to hear from us requesting a time to schedule your New Provider Orientation. This orientation is conducted over the phone and is an opportunity for us to better familiarize you with the program and answer questions that you or your staff may have.
  • SCL will contact you to assign grateful, deserving patients from your community.
