Dear Smile For A Lifetime,
Thank you for giving me my braces! Dr.Storms and his team worked very hard to make sure everything was perfect. Now that I have braces, I smile with my teeth showing instead of closed lipped smiles. The other 2 girls who participated also seemed very happy, as was I. Thank you so much and I appreciate what you did.

Even though teeth seem like a small thing in life, it can really effect how someone feels about themselves.”
