Dear SmileFaith Partners, This past year, you gave from your hearts, both financially and through special acts of service. Your caring and involvement made it possible for SmileFaith Foundation to provide over 80 Smile Makeovers! Many of our recipients have had their lives transformed through SmileFaith services such as individual counseling, job training and placement, Veterans assistance and critical help for the homeless. Smilefaith Foundation provided over $500,000 worth of dental and counseling services. Together, we can help to absolutely transform the lives of many more individuals and families this coming year. Thank you in advance for bringing HOPE WITH EVERY SMILE and changing lives forever through your gifts and partnership!
A thank you would never be good enough for the wonderful gift of a beautiful smile that has given me confidence, self-esteem and a great first impression. Now I can share my smile and bring hope to others. God Bless You, SmileFaith Foundation!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! SmileFaith Foundation went "above and beyond" to arrange dental services to help me smile again. You have my deepest gratitude!
I was in the hospital suffering greatly from undetected infection. SmileFaith Foundation literally helped to save my life!
My new smile has given me renewed confidence and joy! SmileFaith has made a world of difference in my life. I want to give back, especially to young, struggling, single moms.
I am so happy to have my smile back! Thank you for all you have done for me.
Marissa suffered dental trauma when she was hit by an out- of-control vehicle. She has been recovering wonderfully thanks to the efforts of many friends, including SmileFaith Foundation.
Smilefaith Foundation literally raised me out of a hell of despair and renewed my hope! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My friends at SmileFaith understood all the extenuating circumstances surrounding my life. I truly felt that they sincerely cared and would do anything to assist me.
SmileFaith has helped some of my customers to be able to get their smiles back. Every day, I end up talking to people affected by the hard economy, and I have been touched by their strength! SmileFaith has helped some of my customers who have young children suffering with dental pain. Their parents had to delay dental care for the children because of financial hardship. It has been hard for me as an insurance agent wanting to help my customers, especially when it comes to helping the children with their dental pain. After speaking with Tom Lane, President of SmileFaith Foundation, about my client's needs, Tom recommended getting them assistance through the SmileFaith program. I was able to help these clients get the needed help and relief through this great charity! SmileFaith has really helped people to smile again. I fully applaud and support the efforts of SmileFaith Foundation.

Thank you so very much, SmileFaith Foundation! May the Lord bless you for all you do to bless others.
My name is Joseph, and I’d like to share about an awesome gift that I recently received. For years, I have walked around ashamed and embarrassed because of the condition of my teeth. I have had medical problems mainly due to the abscessed teeth. This was a huge burden. Thanks to SmileFaith, this burden no longer exists! When I was told about the SmileFaith Smile Again Program, I thought it was too good to be true. To my surprise, it was very much a reality. The Smile Again Program has truly changed my life! I always felt that people looked down on me as soon as I opened my mouth. Now, I feel that they no longer see that hideous smile. I can carry on a full conversation without thinking that the other person may look away in disgust! Tom Lane, President of SmileFaith Foundation, gave me an opportunity I never dreamed possible or thought I deserved. I owe so much to this amazing, nonprofit organization. I now have the confidence every man should feel. I can finally be me! I want to say, “Thanks so very much”, to the whole SmileFaith team that makes this type of dream come true!
My name is Rachel, and I am 27 years old. I want to say a heartfelt, "Thank you", to the SmileFaith Program for making my dream come true! Thanks to SmileFaith, I now have my self-confidence back, and I have a beautiful smile again. I feel that I have been given a brand new start to my life. Without SmileFaith, this dream would have never become a reality. When I was younger, I never wanted to brush my teeth. At night, I would get up and drink soda and eat snacks, and then go right back to bed without cleaning my teeth. As I got older, I continued to make bad choices in my life, and continued with many unhealthy practices that included very poor dental hygiene. My teeth were so bad that they started to break off in small pieces every day. They would always hurt, and I had to be careful of everything I ate to avoid more breaking. I never wanted to meet new people or talk to them because I was so embarrassed by my unattractive teeth and smile. It would take a miracle to get a smile from me! For years, I never smiled for family portraits no matter how much my family encouraged me. I always thought that I would never find anyone who would accept me for who I was, because I had allowed my bad teeth to make me feel so ugly and unlovable. Then I received a second chance in life that turned my whole world around! I started a job at Volunteer Way, and they introduced me to SmileFaith Foundation. This program helps people get back the smile they deserve. I filled out the paper work and started going to the dentist that SmileFaith provided. My first visit was amazing! I got a temporary smile and went home that day so happy and proud about myself and my new smile! I showed off my teeth as if they were a new car! Having my teeth fixed has meant so much to me. I can now smile at people and not be embarrassed to open my mouth or be afraid of having offensive breath due to bad teeth. I now have new self confidence and self esteem. I know that I can accomplish anything I want to do. I owe a great deal of thanks to SmileFaith Foundation for making my dream come true! I will be eternally grateful because they changed my life!
We are so proud and happy for Rachel, for her new smile, and for her new lease on life. What a difference everyone has seen in her! This once shy, introverted young girl, who never smiled because she was so embarrassed by the poor condition of her teeth, has now turned into a much happier, outgoing, vivacious young woman. Rachel has taken on a totally new personality. She is always happy now, and smiling when she comes into work each day. For Rachel to be given the opportunity to receive this much needed dental work has definitely changed her life. She is now a much more confident, upbeat person with a very positive outlook on life. The Volunteer Way is so grateful to SmileFaith Foundation for giving this young lady an opportunity to enjoy what she has described as a "new life". Rachel has said that it is like being "born again" as a new person!
