To be eligible for the contest, contestants of all ages and backgrounds from across the US submitted essays describing how straight teeth would enhance their lives.

"The essays that we received ran the gamut from humorous to heart- wrenching,” says Keith Wolf, director of marketing for OrthoClear. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer our state of the art technology to help three very deserving people get the beautiful smiles they’ve always wanted.”

The free treatments will be provided in partnership with OrthoClear and three of its orthodontists, Chris Edmondson, DDS, (Arlington, Tex), Andres Rodriguez, DMD, (Boston, Mass), and Alton Bishop, DDS, MSD, (Bedford, Tex).
