In partnership with Smile Brands Inc., Implant Direct, and DDS Lab, the Smiles for Everyone Foundation will provide free dental implants to individuals in need.

The Smiles for Everyone Foundation is launching a new program called Implanting Inspiration which will provide free dental implants for low income, underinsured individuals across the nation.

About sixty-nine percent of adults in the United States have lost at least one tooth, and dental implants are the new standard of care for permanent treatment. As the most cost efficient solution, dental implants can range anywhere between three to five thousand dollars and will last throughout a patient’s lifetime. Alternative treatment in the form of bridges and crowns initially cost a fraction of the price, but need to be replaced every five years.

Through Implanting Inspiration, the Smiles for Everyone Foundation can provide low-income individuals with free, permanent treatment without the financial burden of additional procedures in the future. This program is expected to provide up to $500,000 in donated dentistry to patients across the nation by year end. Those interested in applying can do so through the Implanting Inspiration Application Form.

Implanting Inspiration is made possible through partnerships with Smile Brands Inc.Implant Direct and DDS Lab.
