Smile Of Hope
The enrollment period is underway for Soroptimist International of Whitefish’s Smile of Hope dental program for women.
Applications for the current round of funding are due by Jan. 31, 2019.
Smile of Hope offers 10 scholarships of up to $2,000 each year for dental work performed by one of the program’s dental partners. Participating dentists include Drs. Leslie Anthony, Ron Davis, Thomas Thurston, Neal Buffington, Robert Larson, Laura Radditz, Josh Merrill, Tere Nelson, Michael Bowman and Gary Dalen, and denturist Carl Brisendine.
The program goal is to improve women’s lives by giving qualifying, low-income women Sonicare toothbrushes, education for improved dental hygiene and provide needed dental care to improve their health and self-esteem and to improve their lives and livelihoods.
Applications and program education are available throughout the community at Shepherd’s Hand Free Clinic, local food banks, community dinners, the Soroptimist Thrift Haus, at participating dental offices, and online at www.soroptimistwhitefish.org.
