Dr. Andrews believes that everyone deserves a beautiful smile. This is the premise for the Smile Heroes Foundation he created in 2016. The Smile Heroes Foundation provides free orthodontic care to those in need in our community. So far, the Foundation has provided free braces to 26 individuals.
The Smiles Heroes Foundation engages a selection committee comprised of local leaders who review candidates nominated to receive free braces. Anyone can submit an application for themselves or on behalf of a family member or friend that may be in the need for orthodontic treatment. The Smile Heroes Foundation will start four new orthodontic cases per year.
If you or someone you know if the Brazos Valley area would like to be considered for the orthodontic scholarship, please provide the following in one single email or packet:
– Photos of applicant’s teeth with their name and date of birth.
– Applicant essay about themselves, why they want braces, and how having a new smile could change their life.
– One or two letter(s) of recommendation from a teacher, youth minister, coach, or community member that knows applicant well.
These applications can be mailed, emailed to [email protected] or dropped off to the Andrews Orthodontics office.
