The charity event with double reasons to smile!

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, March 01, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Patients looking to kick up their smiles a notch or two can further magnify them by participating in The Crown Council’s 26th annual Smiles for Life Campaign. Smiles for Life helps patients look good and feel good, and provides an altruistic reason to take their smiles to the next level. As the charitable arm of The Crown Council – a group of leading dentists around the world – Smiles for Life is dentistry’s most successful charity. Smiles for Life has raised millions of dollars for children’s health benefiting local, national and international communities.

The Smiles for Life Campaign unites dentists, patients and dental manufacturers in a profoundly impactful way that changes lives on many levels. Between March 1 and June 30, when someone schedules a teeth whitening treatment with a Crown Council dentist office nationwide, or a teeth straightening treatment anytime, the member dentist donates his or her time and expertise.

For patients interested in whitening their teeth, 100 percent of the whitening materials are generously donated by longstanding strategic partner Ultradent Products, Inc., maker of Opalescence tooth whitening systems. The result of this generous donation is that 100 percent of the cost of each teeth whitening goes directly to Smiles for Life. Fifty percent of the proceeds benefit seriously ill, disabled and underprivileged children around the world via Smiles for Life. The remaining 50 percent stays in each dental practice’s local community, as dentists select their beneficiary charity of choice.

For patients wanting a straighter smile, Smiles for Life partners with Tréz clear aligners. For each Tréz clear aligner treatment, a portion of the cost will be donated directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation.

“Nothing is more beautiful than a child’s smile,” said Greg Anderson, director of the Crown Council. “The Crown Council is pleased to offer this opportunity to improve patients’ smiles, and through subsequent funds raised, to help children smile around the world. Millions of children lack access to oral healthcare in the United States and globally. We are grateful to our partners, member dentists, and patients for participating in Smiles for Life and helping low-income children and children with disabilities get the care they need for better health.”

The Smiles for Life campaign has raised more than $48 million since its founding. Half of the funds raised annually are donated to a local charity of each respective Crown Council member’s choice. In that time, Smiles for Life dentists have supported more than 600 local children’s charities. The remaining money goes to the Smiles for Life Foundation, which supports national and international oral health and other programs benefiting economically-disadvantaged children across the world, including the Dominican Republic, Nepal, Bolivia, and Guatemala. Smiles for Life also maintains a strong longtime partnership with the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation which supports Child Life Zones in Children’s Hospitals across the United States.
