Welcome to the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation website!


picture-resizedWe are very excited to introduce you to Smile for a Lifetime’s new Executive Director, Robin Coen. Robin joins us with 30 years of social services and non-profit management. She is a dynamic leader and very passionate about our mission. In fact, she founded a non-profit called Teens with Promise, an organization that helped provide clothing, medical and dental services, school supplies, and holiday gifts to thousands of needy teens during her tenure. She also worked as a supervisor for one of S4L’s national partners, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).


Our mission to create self-confidence, inspire hope and change the lives of children in our communities in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and their community.


Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontics (free braces) to individuals, ages 11-18 years of age, who may not have the opportunity to acquire assistance any other way.

Launched in 2008, Smile for a Lifetime Foundation aims to reach individuals with financial challenges, special situations and orthodontic needs. The Foundation sponsors the orthodontic care of hundreds of patients each year through our local chapters.

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the U.S. and Canada. Each chapter has its own local board of directors who select applicants to be treated. The process is competitive.


If you are interested in applying for an orthodontic scholarship, please contact the local chapter nearest you. You can find your local chapter by clicking here. If there is no chapter in your area, please watch our website for new members as we grow. Thank you!

NOTE: National headquarters does NOT take applications or award scholarships.
