Smiles Forever

In 2021, Smiles Forever was awarded $10,000 as the third and final installment of a three-year grant for phase II of its research pilot focused on demonstrating the effectiveness of Silver Diamine Fluoride. Since 2000, more than 37,000 impoverished children have received quality dental care that is complete, free, preventative and restorative. Additionally, 37 disadvantaged indigenous women (mostly single mothers) have completed the Smiles Forever two-year vocational dental hygiene program, which helps them become trained to work as professional dental hygienists with the Smiles Forever Foundation.
