Since 2010, Real Leaders has been the premier source for recognizing leaders and organizations that are making a positive social or environmental impact around the globe. Smile Brands and its Smiles for Everyone Foundation share the mission of delivering Smiles for Everyone® around the world through an ongoing focus on the positive impact the organization can have on patients, communities, and employees.
The company has been honored for the past three years as a Glassdoor Best Places to Work and has been named a Best Company for Diversity, Women, Professional Development and Happiness by the employer rating site, Comparably. Through the Smiles for Everyone Foundation, Smile Brands has provided over 20 million dollars in donated dental care to individuals in need both in the US and across its seven international outposts since 2011. In response to the unique challenges of 2020, Smile Brands launched its Safe.Smile.Space.™ initiative to promote both physical and emotional safety within all of its 650 dental offices.
“We are honored to have been recognized for our Social Impact by Real Leaders,” said Smile Brands CEO, Steve Bilt. “Our long-term focus on delivering Smiles for Everyone was put to the test over the past 12 months by both the pandemic and increased social divisiveness. Our team has pulled together in ways that I could not have imagined to ensure continuous access to safe dental care for patients, a safe work environment for our employees and providers, and a supportive, safe space to provide care. All the while, we’ve continued to provide free dental care to individuals in need at all of our international outposts throughout the crisis.”
A special ceremony will be held on January 27th, 2021 to honor the winners and will include key impact speakers featuring Seth Goldman, Chairman of Beyond Meat, and a musical performance from Michael Franti, a world-renowned musician, and activist.
