Braces for children ages 10-18 from low-income families. The Smiles Change Lives (SCL) program connects local orthodontic providers with qualified children in need of braces. Approved families agree to pay a $600 Program Fee for access to SCL’s provider network. SCL orthodontic providers offer quality treatment and healthy smiles to children approved for the program. Children applying for the program must meet financial guidelines and be motivated to follow their orthodontist’s treatment plan, which averages between 20 and 36 months. NOTE: If accepted into the program, SCL provides for orthodontic treatment ONLY. Extractions, cleanings, oral surgery or other treatment that may be necessary before, during or after orthodontic treatment are the financial responsibility of the patient’s parents or guardians.
