OrthoBanc, Chattanooga, Tenn, has been named an official corporate sponsor of the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation (S4L), a national non-profit organization that recruits orthodontists across North America to serve young people who normally would not be able to afford braces. Over the last 5 years, S4L has awarded more than $6 million in scholarships to orthodontists who contribute to the foundation’s mission.

OrthoBanc will join Ormco, TeleVox, and the McGill & Hill Group as a Smile for a Lifetime national corporate sponsor. The new partnership will allow S4L’s national office to provide additional services to its chapter members and recruit new members, who in turn will be able to treat more children throughout North America.

“We are excited to support Smile for a Lifetime’s mission,” says Bill Holt, president of OrthoBanc. “S4L, through its network of outstanding orthodontists, provides a wonderful service for children who, through no fault of their own, face an uphill challenge in life. OrthoBanc is pleased to become a national sponsor of S4L to help the foundation meet its goals. It is an honor to help these young people face life with greater confidence through the gift of a smile.”
