Smile for a Lifetime
WHO WE ARE:
Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to acquire assistance. The Foundation aims to reach individuals with financial challenges, special situations, and orthodontic needs. Smile for a Lifetime sponsors the orthodontic care of hundreds of patients each year. The Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the United States.
Dr. Heather Brown is proud to have founded the first and only Houston chapter of Smile For a Lifetime, Dr. Heather Brown Orthodontics Going The Extra Smile. We have a local Board of Directors that reviews applications semi-annually and selects recipients to receive orthodontic care. 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 it to better themselves and our community.
Dr. Heather Brown received her DDS degree from Meharry Medical College. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Brown continued her training at Howard University in Washington, DC. Dr. Brown graduated from Howard as valedictorian of her class and received the award for superior research.
