Smiles For Big Kids
– Smiles for BIG Kids® (SFBK) began in 2009 and, recognizing that often the parents’ dental health needs are equally as urgent as their children’s, SFBK focused on the needs of parents of SFK patients and the elderly. Since then, the program has expanded to address the dental needs of underserved adults (including parents of SFK patients). The Foundation has partnered with several local community organizations to identify eligible patients and, each year, member dentists provide much needed care to these individuals in the form of dentures, restorative treatment and specialty treatment. Still in its early stages of development, this project will hopefully be as successful as SFK someday.
