Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
[September 5, 2012] — Smile Brands Inc. announces a new online home for its affiliated 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization, Smiles for Everyone Foundation, at http://www.smilesforeveryone.org/. Smiles for Everyone Foundation (“the SFE Foundation”), began in 2005 with a vision to aid victims of natural disasters and provide other forms of assistance for those in need due to circumstances beyond their control.
Today, the SFE Foundation’s focus is to provide free dental services to those individuals most in need who may not otherwise have access to regular dental care, regardless of their location. Since late 2011, teams of employees and dentists from Smile Brands Inc. and its affiliated dental groups have traveled to Chiang Rai, Thailand and Asunción, Paraguay to bring dental services to underserved communities. This fall, the SFE Foundation will continue the work of Smile Brands Inc. in Africa with a mission trip to Ghana.
“One of the accomplishments I’m most proud of as CEO is the effort we’ve poured into the Smiles For Everyone Foundation,” said Smile Brands Inc. President and CEO Steve Bilt. “The new website allows us to share the remarkable, life-changing stories of the patients we meet on our mission trips.”
In addition to photos and videos from the Thailand and Paraguay trips, the website also has information and photography from the SFE Foundation’s International Outpost program, in which local support teams continue to provide dental services in areas served by the mission trips. Visitors will also find details about local expressions of the program in United States communities.
The SFE Foundation is also on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SmilesForEveryoneFoundation. Followers of the Facebook page will receive updates and progress on the program as well as photos and videos from upcoming trips.
