Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization that provides orthodontic care to individuals who may not have the opportunity to acquire assistance. Launched in 2008, Smile for a Lifetime Foundation aims to reach individuals with financial challenges, special situations, and orthodontic needs. The Foundation sponsors the orthodontic care of hundreds of patients each year. Smile for a Lifetime Foundation has participating orthodontists throughout the US. Each chapter has its own local Board of Directors who choose patients treated by the Foundation.
At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation it is our mission to create self confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community.
Dr. Mark Bronsky is a graduate of the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry where he specialized in Orthodontics.
He is founder of the New York City Chapter of Smile for a Lifetime Foundation. He is a current Board member of the National Smile for a Lifetime. He is an orthodontic specialist and owner of Bronsky Orthodontics for 20 years in New York City, NY.
Our Board Members are as diverse as the communities we serve; however, leadership and passion for the community improvements are characteristics they all share.
