What is Smile For A Lifetime?

Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics is proud to be a member of the Smile For A Lifetime Foundation. This Foundation is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity. Launched in 2008, the Smile For A Lifetime Foundation aims to reach individuals with financial challenges, special situations, and orthodontic needs. There are Smile For A Lifetime participating orthodontists throughout the United States, and the organization is able to sponsor the orthodontic care of hundreds of patients each year.

Why Do We Do It?

At Smile For A Lifetime Foundation, it is our mission to create self confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community.

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 Smile For A Lifetime program presents on opportunity to change kids' smiles, which will help increase their self-esteem and improve their outlook for a lifetime.  Learn more at
