The Smile for a Lifetime Foundation’s (S4L) Orange County chapter recently awarded orthodontic treatment to one deserving scholarship recipient, 13-year-old Eby Davis-Calvo. The Anaheim, Calif, native and aspiring musical theater actress met with orthodontist Robert Gire, DDS, CAGS, to have her new Damon® System braces put on. Using Ormco’s Insignia 3D interactive smile design software, Gire walked Eby through a video that showcased how her smile will transform through the course of treatment.
Eby is one of six to eight teens who will receive orthodontic treatment, typically costing $5,000 to $8,000, from the Orange County S4L chapter this year. When asked about her getting her braces put on, Eby said, “I’ve been counting down the days! I can’t wait for my new smile.”
S4L is a national nonprofit organization that provides orthodontic care and free braces to underserved children with financial challenges and orthodontic needs. The organization is supported by primary sponsor Ormco, which donates products, including brackets from its next generation appliances, to orthodontists who provide treatment toS4L scholarship recipients.
