Changing the world, one smile at a time!

So a few years ago, I was honored and humbled to be one of the blessed recipients of a Smiles Change Lives ( ) Gini award. It was presented to me by a true orthodontic mentor and last years recipient, Dr. Stephen Litton. To my delight my husband, Rabbi Eliot Baskin and I were also assigned a seat next to founder, Virginia Brown for dinner after the awards program. This woman has a passion for making the world a better place and was an orthodontic patient as a college student and as a parent when she could afford to complete her care. We heard from a young woman who is the recipient of care through this great organization and how braces changed her life. She shared how she cried when she saw her senior pictures and how she had gained so much confidence with the transformation of her smile! While the concept of giving back is not new this organization is unique in the industry for the hand up not hand out philosophy. As orthodontists we have many opportunities to help young and young at heart improve self esteem- and SCL and the participating orthodontists donated well over 1.2 million dollars of care in 2010 alone. So what is my message for all of you- follow your dreams and try to make the world a bit better than you found it along the way. I get the joy of making people smile every day- it is the best job ever!!
