Apply Now for Orthodontic Treatment Program for Low Income Patients’ Families

Feb 21, 2018

Deadline for applications is March 31, 2018

Child’s Smile Is Precious. Orthodontic Treatment Program Is Here To Help Them Smile With Confidence.

Here is a wonderful opportunity for families to get their kids dental treatment, they wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. Please, consider this opportunity, as smiling with confidence helps kids in their future.

“We shall never know all the good a simple smile can do.”
-Mother Teresa

Applications are now open for the Smiles 4 Canada; a program run by the Canadian Foundation for the Advancement of Orthodontics (CFAO) in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Orthodontists (CAO). The program facilitates the orthodontic treatment of young Canadians who would otherwise not be able to afford treatment. Applicants to the program must be under 14 years old. A local participating orthodontist will treat patients who are accepted for treatment through the program. Patients’ families are only required to pay a small administrative fee, generally less than 10% of a complete course of treatment.

Applications opened January 15, 2018 and closes March 31, 2018. Decision letters go out Oct 9 & 10 and orthodontic treatment begins earliest November 29. 2018.

CBC posted an article last year relating to the lack of interest in past years, these orthodontists are eager to help youth in need. There are hundreds of members willing to fix teeth at no charge and according to the CBC article only 16 people applied last year.
