Corbridge Orthodontics Teams Up With “Give Kids a Smile”

Dr. Corbridge Donates Orthodontic Treatment to Underprivileged Youths

This month, Dr. Corbridge participated in an inspirational community outreach event hosted by the charity, Give Kids a Smile. For those who might not be aware, Give Kids a Smile is associated with the American Dental Association (ADA) and works with them to make sure all standards are met during these occasions. The purpose of this event was to provide free dental examinations and treatment to the children of low-income families. Dr. Corbridge attended this event and granted one lucky child full orthodontic treatment, including braces and retainers, absolutely free!

While Give Kids a Smile, in association with the ADA, hosted this event, this function would not be possible without the support and cooperation of the community at large. Dentists, orthodontists, and other oral care professionals all volunteer their time and expertise to help better the smiles and lives of children who would otherwise be unable to afford such treatment. Dr. Corbridge’s role at this event was to give complimentary orthodontic screenings and special consultations to the children in the area and assist in improving the overall oral health of each participating child.

Beyond simple treatment, dentists and orthodontists like Dr. Corbridge also see this as an opportunity to educate families, and children in particular, about proper oral care. Dental and dietary information, caring for your orthodontic braces, and basic oral hygiene were all topics discussed at this event.

Shown to the right is a picture of Dr. Corbridge with a lovely young lady whom he had the pleasure of meeting at this event. During her consultation, it was revealed to her that she would receive full orthodontic treatment from start to finish, at no charge! With a beaming smile, she was extremely grateful to Dr. Corbridge for this opportunity.

As the many participants of the event will tell you, it’s not simply about the treatment; it’s about the children and their smiles. It truly warmed our hearts to see the children and their healthy smiles after this type of event, and this is one that we at Corbridge Orthodontics look forward to participating in again.
