What is It's About Smile?
It's About Smile is a non-profit organization that coordinates comprehensive oral heath care at reduced costs to uninsured and under-insured individuals. Operated solely on contributions from donors and volunteers, It's About Smile is able to provide subsidized dental services to those in need. It's About Smile allows candidates to improve their smiles by eliminating obstacles in seeking a receiving treatment. Our ultimate goal is to provide comfortable space for patients to voice their oral health concerns and build a plan to improve their quality of life through dentistry.
In the United States, there is a recurring problem stemming from access to healthcare and research says that one in five individuals are unable to afford needed dental care. Not only this, but patients often time forgo dental visits for necessary treatment because they could not afford it or they did not have insurance.
Poor oral health literacy functions as an astonishing barrier to dental treatment as well due to individuals not knowing or understanding the importance of oral health care or their options for accessing such care.
It's About Smile exists solely to help address the barriers affecting patient's ability to receive proper comprehensive dental services.
It's About Smile is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Located in the Triad of North Carolina, the organization is governed by an executive board, managed by an executive assistant and President, and accompanied by a fleet of active board members and dedicated volunteers that ultimately make our organization a smiling success story.
