We believe every child deserves a healthy smile!

This year is the 15th anniversary of Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County, an established pediatric dental nonprofit experiencing rapid growth. In 2017, we were named one of Orange County’s Best Workplaces by the Orange County Register.

We provide crucial dental services for kids in our Smile Center in Garden Grove and Smile Clinic at CHOC Children’s Hospital, through our school-based prevention programs, and at outreach events in the community. Our partnership with the University of Southern California allows us to train future dentists at our facilities as a CODA approved training site for residents of the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. Each year we touch the lives of approximately 100,000 kids and parents—providing much needed education on dental health and nutrition, screenings and restorative treatment, and even offering treatment under sedation for severe cases and for children with special needs. Did you know that low-income kids in Orange County struggle to find basic dental health services? Come help us put a stop to this!
