Smile for a Lifetime Foundation

Black Hills Chapter

Meyer and Dana Orthodontics is proud to be involved in the Black Hills Chapter of Smile for a Lifetime! Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization comprised of local chapters throughout the country that provide quality orthodontic treatment for patients who may not have the opportunity to achieve a beautiful, straight smile without financial assistance.

At Smile For A Lifetime Foundation, it is our mission to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our communities in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, under-served individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and their community. As of October 17, 2017, we have assisted 34 children in the Black Hills area!
