At Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics, our worldview is that all are created in the image of God. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world where people are often judged by their outward appearance or feel self-conscious about the way they look, even specifically regarding their smiles. Through various circumstances though, the opportunity for some people to correct their teeth or enhance their smile is a financial impossibility. The BMO Pro Bono Treatment Program presents on opportunity to change kids' smiles, which will help increase their self-esteem and improve their outlook for a lifetime.
Scholarships for fixed comprehensive treatment (full braces) are limited and based on several factors:
