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 is an international program that provides orthodontic care to children ages 11-18 who normally would not be able to afford treatment. Smile for a Lifetime does not charge for the orthodontic treatment – participating orthodontists and orthodontic manufacturing companies donate their service, including the cost of one set of retainers. The only fee a family will incur is an initial $500 administrative fee to help cover the cost of the program. 

This is a 90% saving to have a Smile for a Lifetime.

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 over 700 kids each year through our local chapters and affiliates.

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the U.S. and Canada. The process is competitive.
