Innovative Orthodontic Centers is committed to positively impacting the communities we serve. We’re always looking for ways to give back, which is why we’re thrilled to be a Smiles Change Lives (SCL) provider. Through the unique program, Dr. Manal Ibrahim, Dr. Christine Gin and our team provide free orthodontic treatment to children and teens whose families cannot afford care.
Why is Being an SCL Provider Important?
It is estimated that 20% of all American children are living with moderate to severe malocclusions (crooked teeth and misaligned jaws). Many have difficulty speaking and chewing, while others suffer with constant pain or are targets of peer pressuring and bullying. Because many of these children come from working families living in poverty, they will not receive the treatment they need without assistance.
SCL serves kids who suffer from the social, emotional and physical repercussions of dental deformities. By volunteering our time and services as an SCL provider, Innovative Orthodontic Centers helps these children experience the benefits of having a healthy, beautiful smile.
