The Smiles for Everyone Foundation is launching a new program called Implanting Inspiration which will provide low-income individuals with free, permanent treatment without the financial burden of additional procedures in the future. This program is expected to provide up to $500,000 in donated dentistry to patients across the nation by year end. Implanting Inspiration is made possible through partnerships with Smile Brands Inc., Implant Direct and DDS Lab.
About sixty-nine percent of adults in the United States have lost at least one tooth, and dental implants are the new standard of care for permanent treatment. As the most cost efficient solution, dental implants can range anywhere between three to five thousand dollars and will last throughout a patient’s lifetime. Alternative treatment in the form of bridges and crowns initially cost a fraction of the price, but need to be replaced every five years.
The Smiles for Everyone Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of delivering smiles for everyone by providing free dental care for those in need, both at home in the U.S. and around the world. Since 2011, Smiles for Everyone Foundation has delivered over 23,000 smiles and over $17 million in donated dentistry. The foundation currently supports programs which provide free dental care to those in need in Cambodia, Ghana, Laos, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Thailand, and the United States.
Based in Irvine California, Smile Brands Inc. is one of the largest providers of support services to dental groups in the United States. Smile Brands Inc. provides comprehensive business support services through exclusive long term agreements with affiliate dental groups, so dentists can spend more time caring for their patients and less time on the administrative, marketing, and financial aspects of operating a dental practice.

Founded in 2006, Implant Direct pioneered the dental implant industry’s value segment.

Today, Implant Direct customers can buy anytime, anywhere, any way. Customers can place orders in person with their face-to-face sales representative, over the phone through their dedicated Customer Service team, or 24 hours a day with their easy to use, eCommerce website. Implant Direct continues to help dentists improve customer care and grow their practices with high quality, value priced dental implant solutions and comprehensive patient education and case acceptance training tools.
Established in 2005, DDS Lab is a National Board Certified full-service dental laboratory. They sell custom dental prosthetic appliances, implants, hybrid solutions and technologically driven aesthetic restorations to dental service organizations, mid-size group practices, and independent dentists across the United States. The company is headquartered in Tampa.
