Smiles for Life

From March through June, hundreds of dental practices throughout the U.S. and Canada are professionally whitening teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in their local communities and around the world. They’re members of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their communities through charitable work.

The Smiles For Life Foundation is the children’s charity arm of the Crown Council. Discus Dental (makers of ZOOM! teeth whitening and BriteSmiles trays) donates ALL of the whitening supplies, and participating Crown Council dentists donate ALL of their time. Together, they offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices (donations) WITH 100% OF THE PROCEEDS GOING TO CHARITY.

Since 1998, they’ve raised over $27 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities. When you pay for your whitening, you’ll write your check directly to the Smiles For Life Foundation, not to the dental practice. Fifty percent of the donations are earmarked for each dental practice’s local charity partner, and the balance goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the U.S. and Canada. Participating charities include Children’s Miracle Network, Children of Romania, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, CURE (in Cambodia), Smiles For Hope, and the Kids Cancer Care Foundation.
