Through its metro Atlanta Gift of a Smile Program
ATLANTA (April 6, 2022) – Georgia School of Orthodontics (GSO) will award four additional Atlanta-based children with complimentary orthodontic care through its Gift of a Smile program. GSO established the Gift of a Smile program in 2016 to celebrate the grand opening of its Atlanta clinic. Since its inception, the program has provided free orthodontic care to metro Atlanta children who are nominated and who otherwise could not afford orthodontic care. For more information or to nominate a child visit www.BracesToday.com/Gift.
The School’s Gift of a Smile program is just one part of its mission to provide increased access to the highest quality orthodontic care at a lower cost than private practice orthodontics. GSO also has the Purple Heart Smiles program, which provides free orthodontic care to the children of Purple Heart recipients. To date, GSO has provided over thirty-seven (37) children of Purple Heart recipients with complimentary care. GSO’s Gift of a Smile Heroes program honors and recognizes heroes of all types in the Atlanta metroplex communities by giving them free braces or Invisalign treatment and has awarded eight (8) adults free care. The three programs combined have provided over $225,000 in complimentary orthodontic care to Atlanta’s deserving children and adults.
“We are honored to show our continued support to the children of Atlanta through our Gift of a Smile program,” said Dr. Randy Kluender, President of the GSO Board of Trustees. “Recipients will be treated at our world-renowned orthodontic clinic in Atlanta. We have recently expanded our facilities and have participated in the acquisition of the building, demonstrating our long-term commitment to the city of Atlanta. This City is our home, and will remain our home indefinitely.”
Past recipients are thankful for the positive impact the program has had on their children’s lives. “Winning the Gift of a Smile contest has meant so much to us,” said Sandra Escamilla, mother of recipient Roman Lara. “Roman is excited to smile and does not feel self-conscious anymore. After going through a very difficult time, knowing that the financial impact of braces is something I don’t need to worry about is a huge relief.”
GSO will accept Gift of a Smile nominations until midnight, April 31, 2022 and will announce the four winners on May 16, 2022. For more information on the School’s program, and to determine your child’s eligibility, please visit www.BracesToday.com/Gift.
